Should a PPL holder require maximum flexibility in terms of when and where he/she can fly safely and legally, including flying at night and/or in cloud, then a full Instrument Rating (IR) is an essential add-on qualification to a pilot's licence.
In light of the extra privileges conferred upon the holder of an IR, the training requirements for the award of the rating are somewhat more involved (and all pilots would agree more demanding) than that for the Instrument Rating Restricted, and these requirements are also dictated by whether the IR is intended for use on single-engine or multi-engine types.
You can choose to train for either a single-engine IR (PPL/IR) or a multi-engine PPL/ME/IR. Both courses culminate in a flight test with a CAA-approved examiner.
Our prices are very competitive. For the latest details on costs and possible discounts on this, and all of our PPL-related pilot-training courses, please download our pricelist or call us on 01708 688380. We look forward to hearing from you!

Stapleford Flight Centre, one of the UK’s top flight training schools, is leading the field with the acquisition of a brand new “state of the art” ALX Alsim medium jet simulator. This is first in the UK, and one of only five in Europe. It has just been installed at the Essex-based airfield and it will be used for MCC (Multi-Crew Co-operation) courses and JOC (Jet Orientation Courses) as well as a combined course for tomorrow’s airline pilots.
