Instrument Rating

Our Instrument Rating Program can be completed in 10 to 14 days​

The Instrument Rating Training package includes up to 40 hours of flight time. Based on individual student needs, should additional flight time be necessary, it will be billed on an hourly basis for the aircraft and instructor to complete the training program.​

If you enroll with your knowledge test passed, training usually will take 10 days or less. If you need to take the knowledge test, it can be taken on-site at International Aero Academy, in which case training usually takes 14 days.​

Instrument applicants enrolled in our FAA 141 approved course do not need the 50 hours of cross country time PIC. Thus they may begin their instrument rating immediately upon attaining their private pilot license.

As with all ratings, certificates and training today, all students will need either proof of US citizenship or an M-1 Visa. For proof of US citizenship, a birth certificate will be necessary, not a drivers license. International students in need of more information regarding M-1 Visas will find it here.
