Training Designed For YOU
Choosing the right program for your instrument training is a crucial decision. It can mean the difference between getting your rating efficiently and on schedule, or enduring many unproductive and frustrating months with little or no progress.
You can become a proficient and confident instrument pilot
in just 10 days because PIC is the expert when it comes to
accelerated instrument training. It's been our specialty since
1980, and we take pride in doing it well. And
we come to you.
Whether you plan to fly hard IFR, or just go through an occasional overcast, you deserve the best training available. You need the knowledge and skill required to fly safely and comfortably in the system. You can take advantage of a planned curriculum. You will learn easily and thoroughly with the PIC Program. The course is an organized combination of ground school, simulator work (the instructor brings one with him) and flight training in the airplane you normally fly. Each segment builds on the previous one. Since there are no gaps in the training there is no time wasted trying to figure out "what did we do last time?". The Program is carefully structured so you learn efficiently and can apply it to your own flying.
Don't be fooled by people who say they are suspicious of
intensive training. Professional pilots, military and civilian,
train on a full time basis. And for good reason. You learn
faster and retain more of what you learn. The fact is, not
many instructors are available to devote themselves entirely
to you for a ten day period. Your P.I.C instructor will be
dedicated to your training, without interruption for other activities.
Learn from an Instructor Who's a Specialist
Located across the country, P.I.C instructors are exceptionally
well-qualified pilots and patient, experienced instructors.
They average over 8,300 flight hours, and most important,
each is a dedicated teacher.
There are ten's of thousands of CFII’s in the U. S.
and annually fewer then one in seven actually signs a student
for the instrument rating. Our P.I.C instructors average 14
graduates yearly. Imagine the difference in the quality and
efficiency of the training you will receive with this kind
of top-notch instructor.
Professional Full-Time Training
If you're an average pilot, you can have your instrument rating in just ten days. From start to finish. If you've already started your training, you may do it in even fewer days. You will train for eight hours a day. And since you are training full-time, you won't waste time re-learning what you've forgotten since the last lesson. You can learn the material in just ten days because it's well organized and you'll have a professional instructor.
You Won't Have to Leave Home
You can avoid the inconvenience of being away from home when you train with
P.I.C. Unlike other programs, we come to you. You can learn
in a familiar environment, where you'll be using the rating
most, and on your own schedule. If you need to, you can plan
time for business or personal matters between training sessions.
It's a Cost-Efficient Program, too
You will save money when you train with P.I.C. Because portions of your instruction
utilize a simulator, you'll save on flight time and fuel.
During your ten days of training, you can expect to fly an
average of just 27 hours, compared to the national average
of 65 hours. Plus, you will learn more easily because a simulator
isn't noisy, you can repeat a procedure quickly, and you can
stop the lesson to ask a question. The simulator will give
you skills that transfer directly to your flying. Without
any wasted time.

Professional Instrument Courses is the expert when
it comes to accelerated instrument flight training. We train
more instrument pilots than anyone else. Thousands of pilots

available anywhere. Without having to leave home. And in just
The PIC Finish-Up IFR Course
Some of our graduates began their training somewhere else and have put in some
serious training time, but just couldn't seem to get the rating
completed. Maybe your instructor's schedule conflicts with
yours or his lack of experience is making the training inefficient.
Whatever the reason P.I.C can tailor a program to meet your
particular level of IFR experience. Most pilots will finish-up
in 3 to 8 days.
The goal of the program is to make you a safe and competent instrument pilot. We won't skip anything or assume a level of IFR knowledge, but basically make you prove your proficiency and knowledge.
The program consists of a comprehensive review of all instrument procedures
and maneuvers, with our Instructor allowing you to progress
at your own pace. This assures that any gaps in your previous
training will be covered. No matter how many hours of prior
instrument instruction you've had, the P.I.C Finish-Up Program
is tailored to fit your particular needs.
Give us a call and we'll review what you've done in the past and give you an estimate as to the training required to finish the rating. Use the Contact Us page or call us at 800-435-9437 (that's 800-I-FLY-IFR).
