Instrument Rating Pilot's Certificate

An Instrument Rating Certificate is needed to fly in severe weather conditions. Without this, and even if you have obtained your Private or Commercial Pilot License, you cannot fly during fogs, heavy snow or precipitation and other inclement weather.
With this certificate, you can now fly your airplane through the guidance of your instruments and flight gauges in the cockpit. Remove the restrictions on your license by enrolling in an instrument flight rules (IFR) course through Chicago Flight Schools. If you hold a private pilot license and have completed 50 hours of cross-country flight then you can get started today.
