This course is intended for Private Pilots (PPL) or Commercial Pilots (CPL) who wish to extend their capabilities to be able to fly under instrument flight rules (IFR) during all phases of flight, which is mandatory for airline pilots (ATPL).
The rating can be obtained in association with single-engine (SEP), multi-engine (MEP) or adapted from single-engine to multi-engine. In addition, the pilot must have a night flight rating (NIGHT) in order to perform his duties.
If the student has the theoretical IR or ATPL course, he/she can start immediately the practical programme, otherwise he/she can do the theoretical course with us, we have classroom and online training.

Which are the privileges of this qualification?
Pilots with an instrument rating (IR) may conduct and fly fully instrument flight plans. The rating may be associated with single or multi-engine aeroplanes and with day or night conditions.
Which modules should I take?
There are two routes: single-engine instrument rating and then adaptation to multi-engine or take the multi-engine course from the beginning. In addition, the pilot must take the multi-engine (MEP) and night (NIGHT) class rating.
What requirements do I need to enrol?
The general requirements are 18 years of age and a Class 2 aeronautical medical certificate. In addition, the pilot must have passed the Theoretical Transport (ATPL) or Theoretical Instrument Rating (IR) course less than 3 years ago.
Where can i go to obtain the medical certificate?

What are the official course exams like?
The theoretical exams are multiple-choice tests with only one valid answer, there are 6 total exam sessions and 4 per subject. The flight exam is done with an official examiner and the student will know in advance the points to evaluate the flight.
What can i do if I need additional training?
Not all students achieve their goals in the same amount of time, those students who need it can hire private support classes or additional flight hours with the school's instructors of their choice.
If I choose an online course, will I have the support of a teacher?
Of course, students have a permanent tutor and different means of contact such as email, video call and the option to come to the school and have private tutorials with the regular teachers of the subject.
How long will it take to complete the course?
It depends on several factors such as the student's availability, assimilation of concepts (it is an advanced course), meteorology during the flight phase, and the time it takes the student to pass the official theoretical exams. As a guideline, the duration can be 2-3 months.
