Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) | AIPA (June)
The Instrument Rating Course offers pilots the opportunity to learn the required flight skills and procedural knowledge to operate an aircraft by the Instruments only and within Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) safely.
An Instrument Rating allows the pilot to fly in various weather conditions, some of which would not be possible when limited to flying under Visual Flight Rules only.
Pilots that are looking to pursue an Airline career are required to have an Instrument Rating.
To obtain an Instrument Rating, you need to complete the three IR theory subjects (Air Law, Navigation, Instruments and Navigation Aids). If you hold only a PPL then you will also need to complete both the CPL Meteorology and CPL Human Factors examinations. For a GNSS endorsement as part of an Instrument rating, an appropriate GNSS Theory Course as per AC61-17 Appendix III must also be completed.
This is an extended version of the full-time ground course designed specifically for the Auckland International Pilot Academy (AIPA). This version of this ground course has more learning time spent on each subject in the classroom and also allows students to have an extra Study Day at the Club together with an Instructor to prepare for the exam.
This course will be running from 0830 to 1630 Monday to Friday for 2 weeks – starting on the 24th of June and finishing on the 5th of July.
NOTE: Seats on this course are limited and subject to the number of students enrolled for the full-time Diploma course.
