Accelerated 10-day instrument rating training

August 20, 2009

I offer accelerated, 10-day instrument rating training, conducted on your location anywhere in the US or in beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC.

I cater to busy professionals and aircraft owners who wish to receive instrument training in their own aircraft. My goal is to train students to a high degree of instrument proficiency, expose them to real world flight experience and up-to-date technology.

Accelerated training:

Accelerated instrument training clearly is a superior alternative to the 9-12 month process of obtaining an instrument rating if you visit your local flight school once a week. With accelerated training you save both time and money, plus you learn from an experienced instructor with plenty of real-world instrument experience.

While not difficult when given the proper training, neither flying an airplane on instruments nor instrument procedures are intuitive. If you visit your local flight school two or three times per month you will soon find yourself re-learning the same things you practiced only a month or two earlier. Instrument rating training is much more effective when conducted in a dedicated course, so you can focus on continuously improving your skill level instead of re-learning the basics every other week.


While I can work with students of any background and experience level, to complete the instrument rating training in 10 days the following prerequisites are necessary:

  • Hold at least a Private Pilot’s certificate and current medical.
  • Have passed the FAA instrument knowledge test.
  • Have logged at least 50 cross country flight time as PIC.


10-day accelerated instrument rating training:

  • $3,000 + your airplane
  • or: $3,000 + airplane at cost from FBO
  • See comparable program costs here

Cost does not include examiner fee (~$350) which is payable directly to the FAA designated examiner, or travel expenses if conducted on location.
