Full instrument training is not required by the FAA for you to fly in most “private pilot” applications, but some instrument training is necessary to qualify for a commercial certificate. It is also an excellent way for pilots to learn more about the aviation environment and thereby increase the safety of all their flights. Having instrument certification enables a pilot to fly under instrument conditions, making that pilot more attractive to prospective employers. At Helicopters Northwest, we have an instrument training helicopter available, and an excellent training environment due to our proximity to several airports with instrument landing capabilities. *Flight Training is available at all three locations. Please contact the office you are willing to receive training from!
