IR(A) SE/ME – training for instrument rating on single or multi engine piston aircrafts
Having an Instrument rating (IR) will allow you to perform air operations in controlled space and severe weather conditions without visual contact with the ground. In IFR flights, we use devices built on board the aircraft and located on the ground for navigation. In addition, the entire flight shall be under the supervision of an air controller responsible for the coordination of aircraft movements. The IR theoretical knowledge training course, as in CPL(A), can be completed in two ways. By taking a course closely focused on instrument flight or by choosing a comprehensive ATPL(A) course.
The practical training usually consists of 35 hours spent in a flight simulator and 15 hours on our Piper PA28R Arrow plane, which is equipped with modern Garmin avionics (so-called full glass cockpit). It is possible to have training on an MEP(L) – PA30 class aircraft as well. Then the training consists of 40 hours on the training device and 15 hours on PA30.
