Once you’ve got your private pilot's licence, what happens if the weather changes suddenly or the weather is not suitable for VFR conditions? With an IMC rating you would be able to fly an aircraft in poor weather and by sole reference to the instruments and you would be allowed to take-off with a minimum cloud base of 600 feet above ground level.
A minimum of 15 hours of dual flight training is required, which will include 5 hours of basic and partial panel instrument flight plus 10 hours of radio navigation and instrument approaches.
For more information about the IMC rating please see pages 637-641 of the CAP 804 document issued by the CAA. This is a UK National Rating.
Please note that instrument approach and holding fees are not included in the hourly rate.
