IR(A) - Instrument Rating

This course aims to train pilots to the standards required to pilot airplanes during IFR flight and in instrument meteorolgical conditions (IMC). The training focuses on the correct operation of avionics and the specific requirements on piloting technique and communication during flight, approach, and landing. You will also learn to use the full functionality of the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit and the Garmin GTN750 navigation instrument.

"My name is Lukáš Vokůrka; I am a Professional Pilot graduate from the Czech Technical University in Prague. Since my school has a flight training partnership with F AIR, I ended up choosing them. There were other options, but I picked F AIR for their convenient location, long experience, pleasant people, and modern planes. When I'd gained my ATPL, I flew with F AIR for a while as a PPL instructor. Today, I am First Officer on ATR 42's and 72's for Czech Airlines (ČSA), the Czech flag carrier, and my job is exactly what I imagined it'd be: amazing, exciting, fun. F AIR is a big part of what made that happen for me, and I'm grateful for their solid training program."
