Instrument Rating (IR) rating is often quoted as the most challenging and rewarding experience in a pilot’s career. This rating qualifies pilots to fly outside of VFR restriction, utilizing cockpit instruments during low visibility or bad weather. This is a learned skill that will build confidence and enhance safety. Southern Skies Aviation Ltd. offers the following IFR Ratings:
Group I - All planes with flight test carried out in a multi-engine aircraft.
Group III - Single engine aircraft with flight test is done in a single engine aircraft. (Icon link to IFR Info Sheet)
