For most people, the next step after your Private Pilot Certificate is the Instrument Rating. The addition of the instrument rating opens up a whole new world of flying. When you operate under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) you can fly in the clouds without reference ground or horizon. Without your instrument rating, you would be restricted to VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and could only operate on clear days.
This new freedom offers you the variety to go anywhere, anytime, day or night, rain or shine. Earning an instrument rating is not only an increase in responsibility, but a growth opportunity for pilots to work in the same system as the big guys (airline pilots).
Multi-tasking will be at the focus of your training. Once instrument rated, you will notice a great increase in your safety level, as well as your overall proficiency.
If you’ve been flying for years without your instrument rating, you’re probably tired of getting socked in and restricted due to a thin layer of clouds.
