Obtaining an istrument rating will not only sharpen you pilot skills to make you a more precise pilot but will also open more opportunities. No longer will you be grounded on a long cross country because of weather. Flying outside the U.S. at night is also prohibited with out an Instrument Rating.

1ST Step:
Call to schedule your first instrument flight

2 nd Step: - Written Exam
Become familiar with the FAA test Question bank while Taking flight lessons.

I suggest ASA videos (100.00) for the ground school portion. The least expensive way is the Glelm written exam guide for $20.00 and you can practice online for free

3 rd Step: - Check Ride
The Examiner will go right down the FAA Instrument Pilot Practical Test Standards and verify you are well versed on the items listed. once the examiner covers the material you fill out some paperwork and fly away with your Instrument Rating.

Costs and Fees:

The average Cost for an instrument rating is $7,500.00. This is baecause of the minimum 50 hours cross country requirement.

I charge $30 per hour plus the cost of the aircraft if you are renting. The aircraft rent for $75-$105 per hour.
