The Instrument Meteorological Rating (IMC) course is natural step forward for those who have qualified for their Private Pilots Licence. It permits pilots to fly safely in poor weather conditions, although its real purpose is to ensure that a flight may safely continue should the pilot inadvertently encounter bad weather conditions en-route.
The IMC course consists of a minimum of 15 hours flying instruction. At the end of the course there is a flight test and a written examination.
In order to be able to commence an IMC course you need a PPL with an RT Licence. Before taking the flight test at the end of the course, 10 hours pilot in command (PIC) - 5 hours of which must be cross country flying all gained after the PPL course, must also be completed.
The flying exercises start with the basic instrument flying to include straight & level, turning, climbing and descending and recovery from unusual attitudes on both full and limited panel. After this has been completed you will go on to the applied stage which will include radio navigation and instrument approaches, this will enable you to being able to navigate with sole reference to instruments from point A to point B, at the end of which you will be able to complete a safe instrument approach at the destination airfield.
The course is competitively priced and includes all flight training and groundschool.
