Instrument Rating
Garmin 430 The instrument rating teaches you how to fly in fog, clouds, and limited visibility. You will develop the   judgment to evaluate adverse weather conditions and the ability to maneuver the helicopter by   reference to instruments. In addition to increasing your capabilities as a helicopter pilot, it also   enhances your confidence and safety.

  To be eligible for an instrument rating, you must:

  Hold at least a current private pilot certificate with an aircraft category and class rating that applies   to the instrument rating sought.

  Be able to read, speak, write and understand the English language.

Have received and logged ground training on the aeronautical knowledge areas of this section that apply to the instrument rating sought.

Have logged at least 50 hours of cross-country flight time as pilot in command, of which at least 10 hours must be in helicopters for an instrument-helicopter rating.

Have a total of 40 hours of actual or simulated instrument time on the areas of operation of this section including at least 15 hours of instrument flight training from an authorized instructor in the aircraft category for which the instrument rating is sought, and instrument training on cross-country flight procedures specific to airplanes, or helicopters or a powered-lift.

Pass the knowledge test.

Pass the practical test.

NOTE: All number and prices are subject to change and all hours are based on FAA minimums.

NOTE 2: Due to current increased fuel rates throughout the country, we are forced to implement a temporary fuel surchargewhich may vary in price from time to time to all our current rates and services hourly. We hope to remove them swiftly if and when the fuel rates are reduced.
