Single Engine Instrument Rating

About The Course 

This course is for students not wishing to complete their Instrument Rating in a multi-engined aircraft. You will be taught to operate in Class A airspace and fly the same procedures and approaches as in the MEIR.

The Instrument Rating course at Booker Aviation is the best example of the bespoke service we offer. Whilst the course minimum requirements are listed below, we will tailor your course to suit your own requirements. You may, for example, wish to do more of the course on the aircraft you will be completing your Skills Test in. We can discuss these options with you at the commencement of your course and we remain flexible as your course progresses so that you can alter your needs as appropriate.

If at a later date you wish to upgrade your SEIR to a MEIR we can assist you with this process.
