• An Instrument rating is required to fly under Instrument Flight Rules which allows the pilot to fly in Instrument meteorological conditions (IMC): in clouds and low visibility. Flying under IFR almost invariably means flying under the direction of Air Traffic Control. To get an instrument rating, the pilot must learn how to control the aircraft using only instruments and how to operate within the Air Traffic Control system, and gain a better understanding of weather systems.
  • A Multi-Engine rating is the most common example of a class rating; it is required to fly an airplane with more than one engine.
