The aim of the CBM IR(A) course is to train PPL or CPL holders for the IR(A) in a modular way, taking into account prior instrument flight instruction and experience. Having completed the course, you’ll be proficient in operating aircraft under IFR and in IMC, with a minimum decision height of no less than 200 feet (60 m).
Ground school priced at £60/hr.
If you have previous IMC experience the 40 hours cap may be reduced, thus price also will be reduced.
An approved competency-based modular IR(A) course shall comprise at least 80 hours of theoretical knowledge instruction. The theoretical knowledge course may contain computer-based training and e-learning elements. A minimum amount of classroom teaching as required by ORA.ATO.305 has to be provided (not be less than 10% of the total duration of the course).
The course is delivered in our state-of-art Cessna 177 RG Cardinal or Piper PA-28-181 Archer III aircraft. These are the best aircraft for such training, which will challenge you initially, but once mastered will give a lot of pleasure during training and flying.
