This course is orientated to holders of a Private Pilot License (PPL) or Comercial Pilot License (CPL) that want to extend their privileges and be qualifieded to fly under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) in all flight phases. This rating is mandatory for the Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL).

The rating can be obtained in a Single (SEP) or Multi Engine (MEP) aircrafts or as an add-on to a single engine in order to obtain the multi engine IR rating. Besides, it is mandatory for the pilot to have Night (NIGHT) and Multi Engine ratings in order to be allowed to perform his duties.

If the student holds the IR or ATPL theorethical part he/she can start immediately the flight phase if not, he can do the IR theory with us, we have boht presential and online classes.

Course access requirements:

Instrument Rating: 50 flying hours as pilot in command (PIC) cross country (XC) and IR or ATPL theory approved.
Multiengine rating (MEP): 70 flying hours as pilot in command (PIC).
Night rating (NIGHT) and adaptations (IR/SEP a IR/MEP): at the school discretion.

This course includes:

  • Turbocharged airplanes (Piper Séneca III and Cessna 172) with Garmin. Nav.
  • Last generation Glass Cockpit simulators (Piper Séneca III)
  • Performance Based Navigation (PBN)
  • Radiotelephony (FCL.055) practices
  • English ATC course and English language proficiency exam
  • Airport taxes, fuel and flight check.

Frequently asked questions

Which are the privileges of this qualification?
Those pilots with instrument rating (IR) will be able to perform and fly full instrumental flight plans. The rating can be associated to single engine or multi engine airplanes and to both day and night conditions.

Which modules should I take?
There are two ways: single engine instrument rating and after conversion to multi engine or to take the rating in a multi engine from the beginning. Besides, the pilot will have to do a multi engine class rating (MER) and nigh rating (NIGHT).

What are the entry requirement?.
General requirements are the following: must be at least 18 years of age and must hold a class 2 aeronautical medical certificate. Besides, the pilot shall have successfully completed in the previous three years, a Theoretical Transport Pilot course (ATPL) or Theoretical Instrument rating (IR) course.

Where can i go to obtain the medical certificate?
Hospital Nuestra Señora del Rosario (Dr. Juán José Cantón)
C/Castelló, 80 – Tel.: 91.643.78.66 (Tuesday and thursday from 8:00 to 10:00)
Hospital de día Pío XII (Dr. Jon Burzaco)
C/ Cuesta del Sagrado Corazón, 4 – Telephone: 91 353 15 10

How are the course official exams?
The theoretical exams are multiple-choice type with an only valid response. In all, there are 6 examination dates, 4 per subject. Flight checks will be carried out with an official examiner and the student will know in advance items evaluated.

What can i do if I need additional training?
Not all students achieve their goals at the same time. Those students who need additional support, can request private lessons or additional flight hours with their favourite school instructors.

If I choose an online course, will I have the support of a teacher?
Of course. Students have a permanent tutor and several means of contact such as e mail, facetime or video call, and the possibility to come to school for private tutoring with the subject teachers.

How long will it take to complete the course?
It depends on various factors such as the time dedicated to personal study, assimilation of concepts (it is an advanced course), and weather conditions during every phase of the flight, and the time required by the student to pass the official theoretical exams. As an approximated value, the average duration of the course goes from 2 to 3 months.

What are you waiting for to sign up?

Instrument rating is probably the most important theoretical -practical module of the airline pilot course. We have the best airplanes, simulators and the best instructors to achieve training excellence..
