Single Engine Instrument Rating – SEP-IR(A)

Overview

PART-FCL (Aeroplanes) was implemented in Hungary on the 8th of April 2012. The introduction of the Single Engine Instrument Rating (Aeroplanes) and additional ratings for specified piston aircraft, have promoted the SE IR (A) training course as the foundation of professional aviation: one of the most important steps in converting from recreational flying to all-weather operations down to CAT I landing minima. To gain the Instrument Rating (IR) is one of the most important milestones towards the professional pilot qualification, but also a valuable development step for the recreational pilot, offering a higher level of safety, standardization and attitude.
As CAVOK Aviation Training is an airline oriented pilot academy, it is very important for us that our trainees get the best IR training they could have, since they will use this knowledge through their career.
Feedback shows that pilots graduated at us easily pass the airline interviews and simulator tests.

Single Engine Instrument Rating authorizes its holder to operate a single engine (SE), single pilot aircraft (SPA) under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) with a CAT I. minimum with a decision height of 200 feet (60 m).
