Instrument Pilot Rating

Adding an instrument pilot rating to the pilot certificate you’ve already earned is a great way to expand your aviation education and ability.

Your training to earn an instrument pilot rating will be rigorous—you’ll have to leave your instincts on the ground and learn to trust your aircraft instruments completely. But once you learn to do this, you’ll be cleared to fly in less than perfect weather.

You’ll have access to many more flight opportunities because you won’t be waiting on the weather—and you’ll be one step closer toward becoming a professional pilot.

Career Opportunities

Getting your instrument pilot rating is an important step in becoming a professional pilot, because it allows you to fly in imperfect weather conditions. However, this rating only adds to the pilot certificate that you’ve already received.

If you’re interested in starting a career as a pilot and profiting from your piloting services, you will need to earn a commercial pilot certificate.
