Instrument Rating

Become a safer pilot when you add an instrument rating to your pilot certificate at Queen City Flying Services.

Known as “Instrument Flight Rules”, operating in inclement weather and low visibility is as rewarding as it is challenging. This skill adds value and utility to a pilot certificate, by both making you a better pilot and expanding your envelope.

The increase in skill and knowledge required for this course makes IFR one of the biggest challenges in pilot training. It also is the most rewarding, as an IFR pilot is no longer constrained as much by changes in weather as is a VFR pilot.

IFR training consists of 40 hours flying solely by the instrument panel, meaning not looking outside, and learning to navigate without visual landmarks.
