The King Schools Instrument Rating syllabus provides a curriculum of instruction for the FAA required aeronautical knowledge areas using King Schools, Inc. courses and a structured flight training program leading to an Instrument Rating in airplanes.
This curriculum is designed for an individual training at an FAA certificated pilot school (14 CFR Part 141) to complete their instrument rating requirements in as little as 35 hours of ground instruction and 35 hours of flight instruction.
The curriculum sequence of ground and flight lessons builds on basic instrument skills while adding the whole new environment of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations. You will learn to combine precise aircraft control, navigation, use of IFR charts and procedures, ATC communications, and the skills to achieve confidence in this demanding environment. This curriculum emphasizes gaining a thorough knowledge of weather including theory, pre-planning and in-flight products such as reports, forecasts, graphical charts, and hazardous conditions. You will also acquire a keen understanding of the risks associated with instrument flying and learn effective ways to manage those risks.
Upon successful completion of this syllabus, as a holder of an Instrument Rating, you will be authorized to fly under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) in instrument metrological conditions (IMC).
