Flying light aircraft in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) requires you to be at the top of your game.  This course offers a structured guide to reviewing IFR rules and procedures for each major phase of flight:  preflight planning, taxi/takeoff, departure, en route IFR, arrival, and approach.  You will need to read the recommended portions of the regulations and the Aeronautical Information Manual, as well as the related media materials, for the quiz.


You will find course notes in the review section, as well as “related media” material throughout the course that you will need to download and review.  The course software tracks your progress with checkmarks displayed for each chapter you complete, and you may stop and start at your convenience.
