Fly in Any Conditions

Your training will start using our brand new ALSIM AL42 Diamond DA42 simulator with a glass cockpit and analogue gauges. The training takes a minimum of 40 hours, which including 20 Hours of flight simulator training and 20 hours of practical flight training. You will be taught and assessed in navigation aid tracking, instrument approaches, emergency procedures, take-off procedures and landing procedures.

An Instrument Rating authorises the holder to act as Pilot In Command (PIC) of flights under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) by day or night in single pilot operations. This is a very important skill as it allows you to fly depart, transit and arrive in restricted weather. Pilots require an instrument rating in chart and RPT jobs and to become an airline pilot this rating is a compulsory requirement.
