Restricted Instrument Rating (IMC / IR(R))

The Restricted Instrument Rating (IRR) course is the next step after you have gained your PPL. It is an essential course that trains pilots to deal with adverse weather conditions during the flight or when coming in to land. The unpredictable nature of the UK weather has made the IRR course a very popular and important rating to have.

The privileges of the IR(R) are vast and allow the following:

  • You to fly UK registered aeroplanes in UK airspace
  • Flight in IMC outside controlled airspace, (in Class G) and IFR flight in Class D or E controlled airspace with appropriate permission.
  • Flight out of sight of surface with a minimum take-off and landing in 1800m visibility.
  • Let-down and Approach Procedures to published Decision Height or Minimum Descent Height and to undertake missed approach procedures.

Restricted Instrument Rating experience required

  • 15 hours, all dual instruction
  • Written examination
  • The pilot must have completed 25 hours post-PPL flying before the rating can be issued
  • skill test


Total price is £2995

We're grounded

To all of our students past, present and future.
It is with a heavy heart that Go Fly Oxford must pause all lessons and aircraft hire for at least the next three weeks.
The office will now close.

However, we are available to answer your queries by email and by phone. We will still be taking bookings for future lessons.
Our very best wishes to you and your families during this time.

We look forward to flying you in the near future.

From all of us here, Mosaab, Sharlene, John , Kevin and Brian.
