AVI50519

To qualify for the AVI50519 Diploma of Aviation (Instrument Rating), students are required to have undertaken AVI50215/AVI50219 Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilots Licence-Aeroplane).

The Gold Coast is ideally placed to provide this type of training with two airports having ILS approaches in the local area. There are also airports with VOR, NDB, and GPS non-precision approaches that are all within a short flight time.

The Command Instrument Rating is available in either a single or multi engine aircraft. This rating allows the holder to conduct flights in Instrument Meteorological Conditions. Full time and part time flexible courses are available.
