INSTRUMENT RATING (SEP & MEP)

You will need an instrument rating attached to your licence if you want to fly under instrument flight rules. The instrument rating enables you to fly the aircraft solely with reference to the in-cockpit instrumentation. This means you will be able to fly in cloud and other circumstances of reduced visibility.

Our course can be taken in a PA44 (6 lever), DA42 and Piper Arrow for the SEP IR.
