The instrument rating is probably one of the most challenging ratings you will undertake in your flying career. It demands concentration, focus and precision every minute, of every flight. While you can do your instrument rating in a single engine aircraft, it has little value if you wish to go on and fly commercially, as most commercial operators require a multi engine command instrument rating (MECIR) to be held.
Moorabbin Flying Services (MFS) has two beautifully equipped Piper Seminoles for you to complete your MECIR in. Both aircraft are virtually identical except that one has traditional analogue instrumentation and the other has an Avidyne Glass Cockpit. During the course of your instrument rating you will obviously learn how to conduct flight inside cloud, but more importantly you will learn how to conduct the various instrument approaches that get you out of cloud and in close proximity to your destination aerodrome so you can land. In some cases the approaches will line you up on the runway centerline. There are a variety of navigation exercises that will challenge you every step of the way so that on completion you will be a well accomplished pilot who is ready to take on the challenges of real world aviation. You will also be required to sit the Instrument Rating Exam (IREX) course and pass the final CASA instrument rating examination.
If the MECIR is completed as a Diploma of Aviation, it is GST free. If not you will be required to pay the GST. Please download our 'all inclusive' costs sheet for the standalone MECIR course, below.
Please note private pilot's can choose to complete a Command Instrument Rating in single engine aircraft. If this is what you are looking for, please contact us to discuss your options and a quote.
