Platinum Aviation offers the Instrument Rating course for pilots in the Cirrus SR-20, the air-conditioned Cirrus SR-22, SR-22 Turbo or of course, in your own aircraft. We have instructors with vast experience with most all avionics systems installed on general aviation aircraft today. Platinum’s instructors all have real world flying experience to pass on. Our current instructor roster includes an FAA Flight Instructor of the Year, several previous NAFI Master Instructors, FAA Designated Pilot Examiners and some of the most experienced Cirrus instructors in the world. Our approach is a structured one that incorporates “real world” flying scenarios at its core.
Instrument training consists of four basic parts, aircraft control, aircraft systems understanding, procedures and regulations and most importantly … weather understanding that incorporates the ability to make sound judgments both before the flight and during the flight. Only an instructor with a good deal of real world IFR flying can help you learn the last topic. All of us routinely fly in the weather and we can help you develop your understanding of weather to make flying a more reliable means of transportation while still staying safe.
Those pilots training in the glass panel aircraft will be trained using the latest teaching methods for these types of aircraft. You will be thoroughly trained to handle abnormal and emergency operations resulting in your being a confident, single pilot, IFR flyer.
You can combine the instument rating course with a Cirrus Transition. This is an excellent way to accomplish two tasks at once. Platinum's instructors, will custom tailor a program for you to combine the Advanced Cirrus Transition Course with all of the required elements of the Instument Rating Course. Pilots wish to do this should plan to train a little longer than pilots that come to the instrument rating course already checked out in a Cirrus.
