Want more freedom when you are flying?

Earn your instrument rating

Instrument Rating makes flying less restrictive, especially on those foggy mornings. 


When you operate under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) you can fly in the clouds without reference to the ground or horizon.


The Instrument Rating not only gives you the ability to fly in and out of clouds, but makes you a safer, more confident, and efficient pilot.
