Instrument Ratings Certifications

By learning how to fly relying solely on helicopter instruments, you’ll be prepared for challenging weather conditions and flight emergencies while you’re in the sky. This type of knowledge and ability is an excellent investment for any pilot and is almost a must for a career pilot. In just the last decade, the standard ratings required by many employers have been adjusted to include various levels of instument certification due to the sophistication of new helicopters and stiffer insurance requirements. We offer three levels of instument training—the Instrument Certificate, the Add-On Instrument Certificate and the Certified Flight Instructor/Instrument (CFII) Certificate.
