Our CB-IR Training teaches a PPL (A) or CPL (A) holder up to the point that he or she is skilled enough to obtain an IR (A) rating. The CB-IR is a different route towards an IR (A).
The course is especially designed for pilots that do not pursue a career in the major aviation industry (ATPL). If getting your ATPL is your end goal, it is recommended to follow regular ATPL theory training.
The CB-IR course contains 10 hours less actual training than the regular IR (A). It is possible to start with your training at the same time you start with your theory. Our CB-IR flight training is skills and competency based.
This route is ideal for pilots that want to fly under Instrument Flight Rules safely and do not want to continue towards major aviation.
