CB - IR(A) Instrument Rating
Competency Based

Instrument rating (IR) entitles you to fly in bad weather conditions(IFR), as you then don't fly the aircraft by sight but solely using the installed instruments and under radar control. For you this means that you can plan your flights to a large extent irrespective of the current weather conditions. Due to the fact among other things, Siegerland airport - your possible flying home base, is equipped with an instrument landing system (ILS) and is approved for flights under instrument flying conditions, this additional training taken after the private pilot license is especially attractive if you want to fly even in poor weather conditions.

In addition to classical IR- training, our CB-IR training can also be combined with the Commercial pilot and Airline transport pilot licensing program. We now, offer a simplified in theory and practice En-route or Competency-based –IR courses. The theoretical content compared to the classic IR rating have been lightened by about 40%. Thanks to the EU Commission Regulation, we, like the EU Aviation society - creating the opportunity for all private pilots to acquire IFR rating, understand the importance of flight safety, experience and knowledge. The En-route IR allows to fly IFR on the route, but cannot perform arrivals and departures under instrument flight conditions, a kind of fair-weather IFR, which means, you can legally fly through clouds, except at the departure and destination with fewer weather minimums in place. However, should your missions proceed irrespective of visual or instrument meteorological conditions, Competency-Based-IR rating  allows you to perform IFR arrivals and departures under IFR conditions with just a few more IFR training missions compared to EN-IR. Additionally, private aircraft owners can now perform a Part of the practical training on your own aircraft, given that the final approximately 10 hours of the flights training to be mandatorily performed at an ATO aircraft/instructors prior to completion of the examination.
 
For the practical training the same applies as for the private pilot license, here too we are guided by your individual wishes on all 7 days of the week!
