Why Should I Get My Instrument Rating?


Increased Versatility and Flexibility

With an Instrument Rating, pilots can fly in a wider range of weather conditions, including low clouds, reduced visibility, and adverse weather. This ability is crucial for those who want to fly regularly and reliably, as it reduces the impact of weather-related delays and cancellations.The Instrument Rating often includes training for night operations. This allows pilots to extend their flying hours, providing more flexibility in scheduling flights and making them more versatile in various flying scenarios.


Enhanced Safety and Risk Mitigation

Instrument training helps pilots develop the skills to operate the aircraft solely based on instruments, mitigating the risks associated with reading weather reports and spatial disorientation. This is especially important in challenging weather conditions or situations where visual references are limited.  This training enhances a pilot's overall situational awareness and decision-making skills, contributing to a safer flying experience.


Professional Advancement and Career

For those pursuing a career as a commercial pilot, the Instrument Rating is often a prerequisite to enrolling in the Commercial Pilot Course.


Airlines and other commercial operators require pilots to hold an Instrument Rating.
