Blackbushe aviation

The Instrument rating (restricted) IR (R), is a national rating and is sometimes referred to as the IMC rating. 

The IR(R) is a natural step forward for those who have qualified for their Private Pilots Licence. It permits pilots to fly safely in poor weather conditions, cloud and fly instrument approaches down to the published minima in the same airspace allowed by the PPL, although its real purpose is to ensure that a flight may safely continue should the pilot inadvertently encounter bad weather conditions en-route. It is recommended, however, that an IR(R) holder applies an absolute minimum of 500 ft above ground level during an approach.

The course consists of a minimum of 15 hours training covering instrument flight, navigation and precision/non-precision approaches.

There is one theory exam.

The course price includes all flying, ground school and one attempt at the theory exam.

Monthly evening seminars at Blackbushe Aviation
We are starting regular monthly seminars at Blackbushe Aviation every third Wednesday of the month starting Weds 17 Jan @18:00 with local flying procedures. Blackbushe is close to Heathrow and Gatwick airspace and also right next to Farnborough with many airfields nearby such as Fairoaks, While Waltham, Odiham, Lasham etc.
I will be presenting on local procedures at the Bushe followed by one of our FISOs to give their take on it. We will then have a controller from Farnborough to discuss local flying using their radar services.
