Instrument Rating (Add-on to Private or Commercial Pilot Certificate)
An Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) instrument rating is added to an existing Private or Commercial pilot certificate. The instrument rating extends a pilot's use of the aircraft and allows a pilot to fly when weather conditions would not allow a flight under visual flight rules (VFR).
To obtain an instrument rating, you must have at least a private pilot certificate. The FAA requires the following training:
- obtain ground and flight training from a flight instructor
- obtain 40 hours of flight training toward the instrument rating - pass an instrument written exam - pass a practical flight test (checkride) with an FAA designated examiner.
