Accelerated Instrument

Rating Program

Our program is Structured, Efficient, & Cost Effective, you may fly your own aircraft or choose from our fleet for your instrument training. The VIP Program is one on one Instruction for 6 hours a day and you’ll learn real-world instrument flying while flying cross-country in the southeastern US. You’ll get 10 days of individualized experience for your training investment while you gain real confidence working the IFR system. If you’re a non-instrument rated pilot, you have undoubtedly experienced the frustration of canceling flights due to low ceilings or poor visibility. With the skills you’ll develop in instrument training, you’ll be able to control your airplane and navigate all the way to your destination without outside visual references, solely by reference to the flight instruments. The Instrument Rating will open many more opportunities for you to fly without being grounded by weather. And in the process, you’ll become a more accurate, proficient, and safer pilot even when the weather is VFR. If you’re interested in getting your instrument in 10 days; this is the program for you. There are no tricks to this, the training is hard work, and requires your full attention and dedication to work. When you’re finished, you will have gained solid IFR Experience. You’ll be amazed at how much you will learn. When you are not in the air you will learn techniques that will simplify otherwise complex procedures such as procedure turns, holding pattern entries and many others.

Private Pilot

Learning to fly, whether for enjoyment, dream fulfillment, or employment, is a rewarding, exciting, and emotional experience that cannot be explained. Whether you are an aspiring airline pilot or just seeking the thrill of flying, everyone’s flying journey begins here: the Private Pilot License. It is the most common pilot’s license in the U.S. and allows individuals to take leisure trips to just about any destination without the aid of a flight instructor.  

Instrument Pilot

For most people, the next step after your Private Pilot Certificate is the Instrument Rating. The addition of the instrument rating opens up a whole new world of flying. When you operate under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) you can fly in the clouds without reference ground or horizon. Without your instrument rating, you would be restricted to VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and could only operate on clear days. Are you longing to fly for the airlines, as a flight instructor, or a charter pilot? Well, these and hundreds of other flying careers have one thing in common: they all require a commercial pilot’s certificate. Even if you don’t want to use your wings to earn your paycheck, commercial training gives you the skills to fly complex aircraft with the precision and safety margins that airline passengers have come to take for granted.
