    The objective of this course is to teach pilots all the knowledge required to obtain IR rating to fly under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC).

    We offer training on single-engine IR(A) SEP, and multi-engine IR(A) MEP aeroplanes. We also offer transition courses so pilots with IR(A) SEP can obtain the IR(A) MEP.
