To gain a UK IMC (Instrument Meteorological Conditions) Rating involves a course of training that finely tunes the instrument flying skills of every pilot and teaches them the valuable art of Radio Navigation. This rating is only valid for flight in the UK but will enable a PPL holder the opportunity to safely fly when the weather conditions are below that required for a basic PPL holder. Part of the training involves learning to fly instrument approaches at airfields, a very useful tool to have if the weather has unexpectedly deteriorated when you approach your destination airfield.
The UK IMC Rating course consists of:
When applying for an IMC Rating, some further flying requirements must have been completed since PPL issue which do not make up part of the course. (Minimum flying hours etc.) Please call us for more details.
- A minimum of 15 hours dual instrument flying training (Up to 2 hours may be in a recognised flight simulator).
- A Flight Test (With one of our friendly examiners).
- A ground theory exam (Multiple choice type questions).
