The IFR at a glance

The instrument rating (IFR FAA) allows you to fly in airplane registered in the U.S.A. (in N):
  • in an IFR flight plan
  • at night
  • in the clouds
  • in class A airspaces
To be eligible for the training, you need to have:
  • A pilot license
  • A medical license
  • 50 hours of cross country flight as PIC
  • 3 hours of night flight
  • 10 landings at night

The training is divided into two phases:
  • Theory (1 week)
  • Practical (3-4 weeks): at least 40 hours of simulated or actual instrument flight time
The theory exam will be performed on a computer in Paris or London at Flight Safety, you can prepare by yourself or you can attend one of our intensive ground schools lasting 5 days.

The pratcical exam is also divided into an oral examination lasting about 1 hour and a flight of about 1H 30. It will be performed where you did your training (at our Cannes base or at your chosen location).
