Instrument Rating

Instrument rating (IR) refers to the qualifications that a pilot must have in order to fly under instrument flight rules (IFR). It requires additional training and instruction beyond what is required for a private pilot license, including rules and procedures specific to instrument flying, additional instruction in meteorology, and more intensive training in flight solely by reference to instruments. 

For most private pilots, the most significant value of flying under IFR is the ability to fly in instrument meteorological conditions (such as inside clouds).

Requirements
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Hold a valid Medical Certificate Class I or II
- Hold a valid Private Pilot Licence (Aeroplane)
- Completed a minimum of 70 hours instrument rating ground school covering: Air law, Aircraft General Knowledge, Compass and Instruments, Flight Performance and Planning, Navigation, Meteorology, Operational Procedures and Human Factors 
- Completed a minimum of 43 hours Instrument Rating flight training

Rates
Based on the above minimums:
- On Cessna 172SP - 14.500 USD

Commercial Pilot Licence

A commercial pilot license (CPL), is a type of pilot licence that permits the holder to act as a pilot of an aircraft and be paid for his/her work.

The basic requirements to obtain the license and the privileges it confers are agreed internationally by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). However the actual implementation varies quite widely from country to country. According to ICAO, to be eligible for a commercial pilot license, the applicant must;

- be able to read, speak, write, and understand English
- already hold a private pilot license
- have received training in the areas of a commercial pilot
- successfully complete the relevant written exams.
