Instrument Rating Training

As we all know, weather can change rapidly, therefore the value of an Instrument Rating, is a more prepared and skilled pilot. Earning your Instrument Rating following your Private Pilot License lessens your ability to be limited due to weather. As a private pilot, you are limited to flying under clear weather conditions by what you can see or Visual Flight Rules (VFR). However, a private pilot with an Instrument Rating has the ability to fly in varied conditions such as clouds by using the instruments of the aircraft or under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). You can expect to earn your instrument rating in as little as 6 weeks.


At Flex Air you have the choice of a full-time or a part-time training program. By choosing a full-time program, you can expect to earn your private pilot’s certificate in as little as 2 months, while if part-time you can expect to complete your program in 3-4 months.

After your IFR, it’s on to your CFI I Training...

So, what’s on the horizon?

Full-time academy students can expect to be ready for their final check ride after two weeks of intensive instruction. Following their CFI check ride, our students continue for an additional 2 weeks to obtain their CFII which will provide them more of an opportunity for employment as an instructor.
