"Instrument flying is trusting vision beyond sight." – Martha King
You planned a great trip to an exciting destination—but travel day turned up overcast and drizzly. You canceled because of weather, again—if only you had your Instrument rating.
Now, Cessna Pilot Centers make it easier to accomplish that challenging goal, with a comprehensive program that is rewarding—and downright fun!
Once you obtain your Instrument Rating, you'll be a safer, more competent pilot. Unexpected clouds will become less daunting, and you'll enjoy flying more—even in VFR!
You'll have earned the right to pierce the clouds, to bask in the glorious sunshine hidden from those you left below. And you'll think... "Why didn't I do this sooner?"
The Cessna Instrument Rating training includes multi-media lessons, followed by fun, interactive questions. You'll have access to flight-preview videos for both G1000 and analog equipped aircraft—plus a complete FAA knowledge exam review program—and it's available anywhere you have Internet access. Your personal login will maintain a record of which sessions you have completed and will allow you to continue where you left off if you are interrupted. The course never expires and it's always kept up-to-date, so you'll have access to all of the in-depth knowledge sessions and flight previews well after you have completed your training.
You can take your Cessna Instrument Rating course on your iPad or iPhone—even when offline! The Cessna Instrument Rating course lessons can be downloaded onto your iPad or iPhone and viewed later when online or offline, with the Cessna Companion App. New

One great feature of this course is the ability to watch each task you will perform with stunning in-flight video before you show up for your lesson. Your video instructor will walk you through everything you need to know to immediately feel comfortable in the airplane. We call these Flight Previews.
