Instrument Pilot (using your aircraft or a rental from FlytAviation)

The FAA requires 40 hours of flight training for the Instrument rating . Most of that is “dual instruction” with an instructor or CFI (FAA Certified Flight Instructor). Some of that training is solo. While it is possible to be “check ride ready” with the 40 hour minimum, it is more likely that it will take around 50 hours of flight training. Dedication to study for the flights & completion of a written exam course is also a key factor in reaching the level of proficiency needed for the FAA checkride.
