Instrument Rating

An instrument rated pilot will be able to fly in marginal visual or instrument meteorological conditions (low visibility and/or clouds). The instrument rating provides more alternatives to rerouting, rescheduling, or cancelling a flight that otherwise would be affected by imperfect weather. The instrument rating also improves piloting skills, abilities, and knowledge.
