The demands on the instrument pilot are immense.
Stay current with your skills.
Aviation is a very serious business at any level. But no where is absolute professionalism called for more than when flying the weather. This is the rating that will truly make you walk proud as a pilot knowing that your pride is backed up by right stuff. The demands on the instrument pilot are immense and you need constant practice in order to stay current with your skills. That is why we also provide the Instrument Proficiency check which is mandated by FAA and is vital for the already rated instrument pilot.
Whether you are a Private Pilot or a Commercial Pilot, having the instrument rating pays off in many ways - freedom, confidence, and most importantly, safety.
Some reasons for obtaining the Instrument rating:
Freedom to fly in challenging weather conditions.
Increased confidence when flying - day or night, controlled or uncontrolled airspace, VFR or IMC.
Increased marketability for the career pilot.
Lower your insurance premiums.
More options when flying for business and meeting with clients.
