After completing your Private Pilot License or Commercial Pilot License and 50hrs of PIC time, obtaining a single engine instrument rating will qualify you to fly without visual reference to ground on days where there may be low cloud and visibility. If you don’t yet hold 50hrs PIC time, a Private Instrument Rating (PIFR) is available to you.  During the rating, the student will be required to develop instrument scans techniques, procedural proficiency, and the ability to make command decisions.
