The Instrument Rating allows pilots to fly in lower visibility conditions and through cloud, when operated in accordance with an IFR flight plan.
A Private or Commercial Licence is required for this rating, along with 40 hours of instrument instruction (up to 20 in the simulator) and 50 hours of pilot in command cross country.
The Ottawa Flying Club offers training for single engine and multi engine instrument ratings. Instrument training at Ottawa International airport offers a busy IFR environment to learn the skills to operate in any airspace. With precision and non-precision approaches available, you don't have to go far to find what you need.
Group 1 (Multi Engine)
