The instrument rating allows flight in the IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) environment. It requires a Private or Commercial Pilot certificate. An Instrument rating is an add-on which allows a pilot to fly in weather with reduced visibilities such as rain, low clouds, or heavy haze. The training provides the skills needed to complete flights without visual reference to the ground, except for the takeoff and landing phases.
