Having a Diploma of Aviation (Instrument rating) allows you to go flying virtually anywhere at any time, and in most cases you are not limited by weather. We teach you how to take on the challenging role of flying the aircraft solely with reference to Instruments in a variety of weather conditions.

This course starts with classroom theory in preparation for the Instrument Rating Exam (IREX). It continues with intensive simulator training followed by a multi engine endorsement and dual navigation exercises. It is a course that will ensure you are provided with quality IFR training and the attainment of a Multi Engine Command Instrument Rating (MECIR) as well as the Diploma of Aviation (Instrument Flight Operations).

The Multi Engine Command Instrument Rating (MECIR) course is intended primarily for those who already hold a Commercial Pilots Licence (CPL) and have a minimum of 50 hours cross country command time and 10 hours night flying time (including 5 hours as pilot in command at night).
