Skywings Flight Training is offering a modular Instrument Rating course as an extension of your PPL(A) or CPL(A) license. We believe that it’s important to give you a comprehensive training. We don’t just take the legal minimum training hours; we offer you a total of 61 flight hours to bring your instrument skills to a very high level.


The training theory for your IR(A) is offered on the basis of distance learning. It concerns an English-language self-study training system for all 7 theory courses according to the mandatory EASA IR theory syllabus. The course can be started at any time. The courses are rehearsed using an online ‘campus’ in distance learning, followed by progress tests and exam training.

What impressed me immediately on my first day, was the staff's professionalism and especially their motivation. With decades of experience working in commercial airlines, each and every instructor is able to transform students into professional, skilled pilots. By communicating openly, they've managed to create the perfect atmosphere that both stimulates hard work and allows students to really enjoy each flight. They're the best school around!

Ever since I first contacted Skywings, I noticed their highly professional, direct, and expert way of communicating. Throughout the training, their expert instructors make sure students feel appreciated and prepare them, step by step, for the professional pilot's life. And they even go to the extra mile by offering professional guidance while you're out hunting for your first job in a cockpit.

I enjoyed my Skywings training a lot. They don't just offer best-in-class training, but professional guidance by airport industry players as well. They make you feel appreciated and give you the chance to develop yourself and to become the best version of yourself, both professionally and personally. There's a relaxed atmosphere, where you can just be yourself in a fun, friendly environment.
