Instrument Rating in Scottsdale, AZ

Earning an instrument rating will take your aeronautical skills and knowledge to the next level

Adding an instrument rating to your pilot certificate will permit you to fly into weather that would otherwise keep you grounded.  You will learn how to fly by instruments only, as well as learn instrument approach procedures and departures. You will also develop a deeper level of understanding on weather, ATC communications, aircraft control, and aeronautical decision making.

An instrument rating is recommended to all pilots willing to take their knowledge and skills to another level as you will develop into a much safer and more capable pilot.  But it is also a requirement for anyone wishing to pursue a career in aviation.

Instrument Rating Requirements

You must log the following:

  • 50 hours of cross-country flight time as pilot in command
  • 40 hours of actual or simulated instrument IMC flight time
  • 15 hours of instrument flight instruction from an authorized instructor
