This course is designed to hone your skills for flying based on instrument data during low visibility. Upon completion of this course, you will no longer be limited to flying in good weather conditions only.

Except for takeoff and landing, you will no longer need to fly based on Visual Flight Rules (VFR) to ensure the ability to fly safely in inclement weather conditions. With the additional guidance from air traffic control, the risk of a mid-air collision is drastically reduced.
