Safety Is The #1 Priority
Once you have your Private Pilot License (PPL), earning your Instrument Rating is the next and biggest step in progressing your flying privileges and abilities.
This rating qualifies you to fly in clouds and inclement weather using only the instruments as reference. This is technically known as flying under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR).
Even if you don’t plan to fly in bad weather, an Instrument Rating can help make any pilot safer and more precise.
