Instrument Rating

An instrument rating is a rating that is added to a private pilot or commercial pilot license and refers to the qualifications that a pilot must have in order to fly under instrument flight rules or IFR. It requires additional instruction in weather and more intensive instrument flight training in flight solely by reference to instruments. Testing consists of a knowledge exam and a practical test (known more commonly as a check-ride). The check ride is divided into an oral part and a flight part.
