The Enroute-IR (Instrument Rating) is an additional rating for people who are currently in the possession of a valid PPL license. Holders of the qualification are allowed to fly the enroute part of their journey in IMC (Instrument Meteorological conditions) weather under IFR rules but the take-off and landing needs to be done under VFR conditions. This allows you to expands the possibilities when willing to perform longer navigation flights since you are able to fly safely in all weather conditions.
What are the requirements?
- A valid PPL license
- Class 2 medical certificate with IR audiometry test
- Hold at least a PPL(A) and have completed at least 20 hours of cross-country flight
time as PIC in aeroplanes.
- Night rating (not mandatory)
What does the course include?
The training consists of both a practical part as a theoretical part. The theoretical part is given just like our other courses by means of distance learning, so that each candidate can study at their own pace. When the theoretical part is finished, the candidate has to do a series of mandatory theoretical exams.
Parallel with the theoretical training, the practical part will be done. This is given on our state of the art Cirrus SR22 with Garmin G1000 avionics with well qualified instructors who are also pilots on the corporate jets at ASL. When both is finished, each candidate has to do a practical exam to complete the course.
