instrument proficiency check 



Six in Six!  We will help you retain currency, or become current again by performing the "IPC" in our airplane or your own.  The "IPC" consists of intercepting and tracking a VOR radial, a hold, and six instrument approaches. We like to perform three precision and three non-precision approaches.


Flying light aircraft in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) requires you to be at the top of your game.  This course offers a structured guide to reviewing IFR rules and procedures for each major phase of flight:  preflight planning, taxi/takeoff, departure, en route IFR, arrival, and approach. The instrument proficiency check consists of an oral or written equipment test and a flight check under simulated or actual IFR conditions.


The flight check includes navigation by instruments, recovery from simulated emergencies, and standard instrument approaches involving navigational facilities which that pilot is to be authorized to use.
