AAPA - Command Instrument Rating

The Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) Rating allows the pilot to conduct flights in all weather conditions both in the day and at night. The candidate will learn how to safely manipulate the flight controls by sole reference to the flight instruments.

Our Multi Engine Command Instrument Rating (CIR) course is structured to start in one of our three state-of-the-art category ‘B’ ELITE iGATE synthetic flight trainers, which can, if required give the trainee a 180-degree view of the surrounding computer-generated landscape.

This incorporates navigational aid training to develop an understanding of all navigational aids and their associated instrument approaches, before moving on to a series of cross-country navigational exercises with simulated Air Traffic Control (ATC) in the synthetic flight trainer.

By the time the candidate starts the instrument training in the aircraft, he/she will have a sufficient understanding of the flight procedures to manoeuvre the aircraft safely to its destination.

The structured syllabus will move the candidate into AAPA’s brand new glass cockpit Piper Warrior III aircraft through to the multi-engine Piper Seminole for the remainder of the flying.
