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).
CBM IR course for Single-Engine aircraft which is a modular course allowing you to credit your previous training or flight experience towards full IR(A) course. With our great fleet of PA-28 Archer III and Cessna 177RG, we’re offering great combination to provide you with professional and affordable training and giving you confidence to fly in bad-weather conditions.
We also offer Multi-Engine IR course – with just 5 hours more (comparing to basic CBM IR) you’ll get your IR rating both for Single- and Multi-Engine types, which is a great offer. This course is normally flown in our magnificent Cessnas 310R, which will give you benefit to be both well trained in IR conditions as well as to up-skill your ME capabilities.
Ground school priced at £60/hr.
If you have previous IMC experience the 40/45 hours cap may be reduced, thus price also will be reduced.
