I-Ratings

Introduction

Welcome to the PilotEdge I-Ratings! This series of 11 IFR flights can help you become familiar with a wide range of practical techniques and concepts that are important for IFR flight. Each scenario contains helpful resources to help you become comfortable with the concepts that are being presented. If you’d like to take part then review the Taking the CAT/I Tests guide and then get started with the list below. The program is voluntary, but if you do elect to take part then the flights need to be completed in order. The only exception is the I-9 rating which is optional as it requires the use of turbojet aircraft.
