I got my private pilot license! What's next?

Congratulation for getting your first aerial license, we are sure by now you are an outstanding pilot! 

However, should the weather not at its optimal, such as cloudy condition, a PPL license does not give one the ability to fly!

During the time of low visibility, one would require to have an INSTRUMENT RATING as an add-on to your PPL to allow you utilizing the various instrumentation inside the aircraft to fly, without using visible landmarks on the ground!
