The Instrument Rating (Airplane) is required for flights conducted under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). Mesa Pilot Development uses the time earned during the instrument syllabus to count toward the Commercial Syllabus. The Instrument Rating focuses on controlling the airplane without outside visual references. It allows you to legally and safely fly in varying states of weather including low-visibility and low-ceilings. It requires advanced instruction in meteorology and specific training in IFR rules and regulations.
Mesa Pilot Development is proud to offer the Instrument Rating Flight Course as an FAA Part 141 approved course – allowing you to earn your rating in a highly structured environment resulting in less time and less cost.
