10 Day IFR Training Course

When I got my private, I drug it out over years to do so. I rarely ever had time to do so, and after a few weeks break, when I got back in the plane, the practical skills that I had learned in the last flight started to become less sharp, and in many cases, needed to be relearned. It was time consuming, and at sometimes, I wasn’t even looking forward to get in the plane. After I received my private, I decided that I was not going to take lessons like that again. At that point, I decided I was going to take my instrument via an intensive.


As the dates for my intensive drew nearer, I began to become weary. However, upon my first day with Bill, I knew it would be easy. Flying became exciting again, and my love for it grew as much as it did when I did my solo. Learning deeper about things lightly covered in my Private ground made me realize how little about flying I actually knew.


I learned more about flying in those ten days than most would in months. That is especially true, when the plane you are flying starts to fall apart mid-week. Normal instrument training came with emergency training, too. While I was learning about MOCA’s and OROCA’s, I was also learning what to do when your Garmin 430 goes up in smoke on run-up, and what to do when you have to fly without an electrical system, or a flat tire.


Flying with Bill at AFIT was a great experience. It was easier, cheaper, and more fun than any training I ever had previously, and I will suggest it to anyone looking to get their instrument rating, or whatever rating they are looking to receive next. My love for flying has grown again, and I am excited about this new rating, and the adventures lie ahead.
