Privileges of Licence

The Command Instrument Rating is the most demanding and challenging to obtain. It requires the development of good hand-eye co-ordination skills, procedural proficiency and the ability to make command decisions. Without a Command Instrument Rating a pilot must operate in visual meteorological conditions (VMC) at all times.

Successful completion of this rating will enable you to operate in nearly all weather conditions. As a charter or airline pilot your employment opportunities are much higher if you are able to fly in all types of weather. Once you have attained it you will be a pilot with abilities shared by only a few at the very top of aviation tree.


Your training commences in the increasingly popular AGMK6 Aero guidance simulator. This trainer is set up in its single engine mode. The system is fully computerized with all types of navaids, including DME and GPS, and can simulate all sorts of procedures including Air Traffic Control, weather, and the most important emergency procedures that cannot be practiced in real flight. The trainer is also used for recency requirements.

Your training will consist of 15 Hours in the simulator and the remaining hours in the aircraft. This cuts down the cost of the IFR Rating. The flight training component is conducted in the Piper PA44 Seminole.
