The PIFR allows pilots to operate in private operations under the Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC). This rating is designed for enRoute IFR flying operations. Additional training may be completed to land or take-off in IMC.
Training for the PIFR will include instrument flight time both in the aircraft and simulator, and a pass in a written examination. At the conclusion of the training a flight test will be conducted.
Students must hold a PPL or higher prior to completing this course.
