Training / Licensing of an Instrument Rating

The best way to improve your flight safety and increase your piloting capabilities.

The choice of an adequate training organisation and the appropriate training course according to the latest European training regulations is not that simple. Because of the variety of different ratings and training concepts you should obtain a thorough consultation in advance.

In Germany, the licensing for a instrument rating is only done by Approved Training Organisations (ATOs), that have been certified by the Federal Aviation Authority. Avoid unpleasant surprises by choosing a qualified and Approved Training Organisation for your training and examination. With the MFA you will get your training, examination and licensing – i.e. your total qualification from a single source, avoiding unnecessary bureaucracy and efforts in organisation !

Reasonably, training for an instrument rating is started with an IR / Module A (no theory lessons, 10 h training course), or an EIR (complete theory course, 15 h training course). We offer you a thorough consultation, contact us as soon as you intent acquiring an instrument rating, we will find the best suitable and most cost efficient solution for you !
