Instrument Ratings

There are several different types of Instrument Rating available for pilots who are ready to take the next step or advance their skills and take on a new challenge. If you are a private pilot who only requires an Instrument Rating for private flying then a Private Instrument Flight Rules (PIFR) may be all you require.

If you wish to fly among the clouds professionally then a Single Engine Command Instrument Rating (SECIR) or a Multi Engine Command Instrument Rating (MECIR) would be more suitable. The MECIR is the minimum requirement for most charter and airline cadet-ship programs. The Fly Oz Syllabus completes the entire training syllabus in a multi engine aircraft, so you will be job ready on completion.

Retractable Undercarriage and Manual Propeller Pitch Control

Retractable Undercarriage and Manual Propeller Pitch Control Endorsements are a necessity for pilots looking to build a career in aviation. Most modern high speed aircraft will have at least one of these features if not both included into their design.   Both endorsements can be conducted simultaneously or individually on they’re own depending on the needs of the student. Training includes all ground theory and flights until proficient.   Training is conducted in a Piper Arrow that hosts both a Manual Propeller Pitch Control and Retractable Undercarriage.
