Earn an instrument rating and make this summer count!

If you’re scratching your head over what to do this summer, have you thought to earn an instrument rating at CTI Professional Flight Training?

Pilots who already have their instrument rating will tell you how useful and versatile an addition it is to any aviator’s toolkit. After all, your Private Pilot’s License can only get you so far, so why not take the time to upskill and add to the hard work you’ve already completed?

Why should you earn an instrument rating?

The instrument rating certification will transform you into a more rounded, capable and confident pilot. It prepares you to deal with a range of weather conditions, which in turn allows you to take to the skies more regularly (rather than forgoing a flight due to weather concerns).

You’ll finish your training feeling safer and more secure in any situation involving unexpected weather conditions. This is particularly useful for pilots in Florida and Tennessee, where our weather conditions can turn from ‘awesome’ to ‘ugly’ in a matter of minutes!

Also, if you want to become a commercial pilot in the future, an instrument rating can give you a genuine advantage over other trainee pilots.

What are the requirements for instrument rating training at CTI Professional Flight School?

If you’ve earned your Private Pilot’s License, you can earn an instrument rating with us. We also need you to hold an FAA third-class medical, and you need to be at least 17 years old.

How long does it take to earn an instrument rating?

Your training should take between three and five weeks in total, making it easy to achieve before the summer comes to an end!

How much does it cost?

Our instrument rating training at CTI Professional Flight School carries a base price of $8,799 – an incredibly worthy investment when you consider how much safer a pilot it will make you. After all, you can’t put a price on the safety of yourself or your passengers.

So what’s stopping you? A long, hot summer ahead and the opportunity to upskill yourself in the cockpit? We can’t think of anything better!
