Awaiting CASA approval
An Instrument Rating allows a pilot to fly an aircraft in cloud or reduced visibility. Sydney Flight Training has developed a detailed training program to guide a pilot through this challenging and rewarding qualification.
For the qualification a minimum of 40 hours Instrument time is required. This can include 20 hours in a CASA Flight Training device that simulates instrument flying conditions. The remaining must be in an aircraft during flight.
The syllabus uses an in-house Flight Training device to teach the pilot the new skills required. This, combined with the lessons in the aircraft, develop all the skills required to safely operate the aircraft with sole reference to the flight instruments.
Additionally, for those pilots that do not need all the qualifications an Instrument Rating gives, can apply for a Private Instrument Rating (PIFR). This starts with a minimum of 20 hours instrument time and then a pilot may add further instrument endorsements (e.g. GNSS approach) as needed. Our Head of Operations will tailor a training package to your needs.
