Single Engine Instrument Rating

Even though we would love to have perfect visual flight conditions, the weather doesn’t always cooperate with us. You can increase your flying options even further by getting a single engine IFR rating. This will allow you to fly safely in poor visibility – with no reference to the ground – and get you to your destination as planned.

The course is based on 20 hours of simulator training and an additional 15 hours of flight instruction. In most cases, 5 hours of dual instruction has been acquired from your private pilot training. Flight instruction is given in our newer 172R model.

Training costs reflect Transport Canada minimum training times and the program follows Canadian Aviation Regulation guidelines. There are no membership fees at Montair. Further information on Transport Canada licensing and experience requirements can be found on the relevant section of the Canadian Aviation Regulations, available online here.
