LAC Flying School - The IMC Rating Course
The UK IMC Rating
The IMC Rating is a national rating and can only be endorsed onto a UK or JAR aeroplane licence. The CAA will only add an IMC Rating to a UK issued licence.
The IMC Rating allows the pilot to fly in much poorer weather conditions. However, as it is a national rating it cannot be used outside UK airspace. It consists of a minimum of 15 hours dual instruction followed by a skill test. There is one written exam to be completed and the study material is available from the flying school. The course teaches the student how to fly the aircraft solely by reference to instruments, how to navigate using radio aids, and how to use radio aids to land the aircraft in visibilities as low as 1800m. The course is ideal for PPLs wanting to further their skills, or those looking to do an Instrument Rating in the future as an introduction to instrument flying.
Before applying for the IMC Rating, the following requirements must be met...
- 25 Hours total experience as pilot of aeroplanes following PPL issue including...
- 10 Hours Pilot in Command
- 5 Hours PIC Cross country flights (landaways)
- 15 Hours Pilot under Training instrument flying, consisting of a minimum of 10 Hours total flight time by sole reference to instruments.
