Instrument Rating

An Instrument Rating is an add-on to your existing Private or Commercial Pilot Certificate that allows you to fly in IFR conditions (which can include flying in or through clouds, low visibility, etc). Even if you don't typically plan to fly near bad weather, an Instrument Rating can help to make any pilot safer and more precise. At South Atlanta Flight Training, we conduct instrument training in our Piper Cherokee PA-28-140 which is equipped with a Garmin 430 GPS (certified for instrument approaches), S-TEC 30 Autopilot, and clearance playback recorder.

To start your instrument add-on rating, you must:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen or Comply with TSA Requirements
  • Hold a Current FAA Medical Certificate
  • Hold a FAA pilot certificate
