Instrument Rating

You can choose to do a single engine (Group 3) instrument rating on one of our C-172s or a multi-engine (Group 1) instrument rating on a Piper Seminole. The minimum requirements for the rating are 40 hours of instrument time (with a maximum of 20 hours done in a simulator) and 50 hours of cross-country pilot-in-command time. Of the 40 hours instrument time, a minimum of 5 hours must be on the category of aircraft you wish the rating to cover; e.g., single engine, multi engine or helicopter. The cost of the rating will vary depending on the experience of the student and the aircraft type chosen for the rating.
