INCLUDED IN CPL
In case of bad visibility or even overseas flying without visual landmarks that can be spotted, a Private or Commercial Pilot License will not be sufficient, therefore, the need for an Instrument Flight Rating (IR) becomes necessary. This rating will allow the pilot to fly in bad or low visual conditions, with sole reference to his cockpit panel instruments. The pilot will be able to safely maneuver his aircraft and follow accurate navigation itineraries through clouds, haze, fog, smog, mist and other low visibility conditions, without ever experiencing the necessity to see the ground.
Be a Private Pilot as minimum
