Instrument Rating

After completion of the PPL, students may begin their Instrument Rating training. The Instrument Rating course trains pilots to fly an aircraft solely by reference to instruments in conditions of low visibility.  For instance, pilots can fly in cloud cover or at night.

The Instrument Rating course includes the following elements:

  • 39 Dual Flight Hours*
  • 14 Redbird Simulator hours*
  • Ground Instruction (Pre/Post)
  • Cessna Computer Instruction
  • Air Traffic Control Communications
  • 2 Check Ride Hours*

All flight training for the Instrument Rating course is provided by California Flight Academy and counts as credit towards your Bryan College associate degree program.
