An Instrument Rating (IR) will take safety and proficiency to the next level. Obtaining an instrument rating will make for a better pilot, reduce insurance premiums and is more marketable, as most aviation employers require their pilots to be instrument rated. The FAA minimum requirements for pilots under part 61 regulations are 40 hours of dual flight time. Part 141 training requires a minimum of 35 hours. Most students take advantage of the opportunity to obtain an instrument rating while building time towards a Commercial Pilot’s License (CPL). This rating also requires a minimum of a third class medical.
