The IFR school will take place over eight Saturday mornings - one per week - starting at 10am. Do come and talk to to us about the course, including discussing books and materials you may need. The school teaches you the information you will need not just to pass pass the knowledge test but also to fly safely in the instrument environment. Some homework, in the form of extra reading is required. The timetable and curriculum are shown below.

Cost is $199.00 for the complete course. Materials are additional as follows:

FAA Instrument Flying Handbook

FAA Instrument Procedures Handbook

We can sell you the books and charts for a total of $64.95 and we pay the tax. This is a saving of over 10% over normal costs.

EAA members save $5 off the cost of their knowledge test at Lasergrade. For details see:
