Instrument Rating - IR

An Instrument Rating attached to your licence is needed if you want to fly under instrument flight rules. The instrument rating enables you to fly the aircraft solely with reference to the in-cockpit instrumentation. This means you will be able to fly in cloud and other circumstances of reduced visibility.  The instrument rating opens up a new world of flying, and at the same time increases the safety of your flying. Moreover it is an absolute necessity if you would like to fly in a commercial jet operation at some point.
