This course is designed to hone your skill for flying based on instrument data during low visibility. Upon completion of this course, one no longer needs to be limited to fly only in good weather. With the exception of take off and landing, one no longer needs to fly based on visual fly rules (VFR), to ensure the ability to fly in inclement weather. With the addition of guidance from air traffic control, the risk of mid-air collusion is drastically reduced.
