The course of training for the IRI Instructor rating comprises:-

A minimum of 10 hours flight training on instruments in an aeroplane or approved flight simulator and a minimum of 35 hours theoretical training with an FIC instructor.

An existing FI is exempt from the 25 hour core course.


Before being permitted to begin an approved course of training for an IRI instructor rating, an applicant must:-

Hold a valid single pilot, Instrument Rating (IR).

800 hours flight time in accordance with instrument flight rules (IFR), of which at least 400 hours shall be in aeroplanes.  If the rating is to be for multi-engine aeroplanes, the candidate must meet the requirements of para FCL.915.CRI(a) (see Multi-engine Instructor page).

Assessment of Competence

At the end of the course an Assessment of Competence covering theory and a flight will be taken with a Flight Instructor Examiner (FIE). This will normally be carried out at Shoreham or “Lee-on-Solent”, but by arrangement can be carried out at your home airfield. Additionally PFIS will provide the candidate with an end of course certificate.
