The full Instrument Rating may go beyond what you practically need to use. If you have an EASA or UK CAA pilot licence you can apply for a limited form of instrument rating. This is not normally recognised outside of the UK but it is a lot simpler to obtain.
This is an Instrument Metrological Conditions (IMC) rating, which can be endorsed as an Instrument Rating (restricted), the IR(R) on a Part-FCL licence.
The IMCR or IR(R) is restricted to UK airspace only.
The course consists of a minimum of 15 hours, all dual instruction, with a written examination and skill test. The pilot must have completed 25 hours post-PPL flying before the rating can be issued.
The privileges of the IR(R) allow:
UK CAA or EASA PPL(A)
Current Class I or II Medical / Medical Declaration.
25 hours post licence issue before the rating can be issued.
15 hours dual training.
Membership for duration of course
Fuel surcharge (when levied)
Away landing fees and circuit fees
CAA and examiner fees
All hours or landings over and above those included with this package
