The Instrument Rating course (IR)

qualifies a pilot to fly an aircraft follow-

ing the Instrumental Flight Rules (IFR).

The cadet, who already holds the PPL

licence, will learn to plan the entire

flight using IFR maps divided into de-

partures (SID), airways, arrivals (STAR)

and approaches. This certification will

give the cadet an intensive flight train-

ing relying only on the aircrafts’ instru-

mentation, improving the technique

that will accompany the IFR pilot

throughout his career path.
