    Don't forget that if you are not in VMC (less then 1000 ft from the clouds for example) then you are in IMC so you need an IFR rating to be legal!

    What about aneasier IFR rating for private pilots? The european EIR (Enroute IFR Rules= T-Oin VMC, fly in or above the clouds and land in VMC). Maybe not less intrumentsin the cockpit but less study...

    Thanks!
    I started to talk to my local club and my plan is to talk to larger VFR private pilot groups and at the end those groups will talk to COPA (your AOPA). I would like COPA to present this...

    Hello Dan,

    EFR stands for Enroute Flight Rules (my suggestion).

    I did a presentation at my local club and all VFR pilots were very interested to get this licence. This may be a step towards...
  10. Here in Canada we have the VFR Over The Top...

    Here in Canada we have the VFR Over The Top rating which is done with a VFR licence: needs at least 50% of blue sky at departure and arrival, 5000 ft between 2 layers, 5 miles visibility and 1000 ft...

    Hello Wes,

    I didn't talk to TCCA yet. For the moment, I am talking to private VFR pilots and here in my area they are all interested about this EFR rating. Often, those pilots will not fly because...
  12. Hi Wes, I didn't talked to TC yet. Here in...

    Hi Wes,
    I didn't talked to TC yet. Here in Canada we have the VFR OTT rating but not many takers and not many users. To be able to fly above, and later descend below, the clouds the pilot needs a...

    Yes Todd, I am instrument rated. Got my airline licence in 1978 but never wanted to fly for the airlines. Flew Beaver and Aztec in northern Quebec. Had 3 ADFs on board and those are my specialities!...

    I agree with you, a pilot should always take the right decisions before take-off, should be prepare (proficient) for the flight and have plan B, C.... The forecast is never garanty flying VFR, EFR or...
  15. Well, I didn't read back all of my posts but I...

    Well, I didn't read back all of my posts but I don't think I said that IR is more costly than necessary and if I did this is not what I meant. IR is more expensive compare to an EFR rating. The pilot...

    The same problem will still exist Marty because the new pilot will not fly enough to maintain is IFR rating.
  17. Lots of VFR pilots don't fly anough and flying...

    Lots of VFR pilots don't fly anough and flying IFR is worse so proficiency is a high goal to achieve.

    You fly a lot because you are a professional pilot. An average private IFR pilot will be less...

    I didn't find stats and I don't know since when this IR(R) exists. I don't know if studies were done about safety. My guess is that this IR(R) rating still exists today because it was not a problem...

    Marty, I really don't know. I read that 70% of US IFR rated PPLs do not use their rating. The reasons may be: they don't use it anough, they don't feel comfortable, the costs, etc. Current is defined...

    Here is what I found on the web: The training for the full Instrument Rating (IR) is vey stringent and costly. Because of this, the UK CAA also issues the Instrument Rating (Restricted), IR(R), which...

    I agree with you. I wish an IFR rating to all pilots.

    You are right, getting an IFR rating is the best a pilot can go for and I wish one for every pilot.
  23. Training, training, training is the way to go we...

    Training, training, training is the way to go we have no other choice. In the hope to reduce LOC (Loss Of Control) some airline pilots receive aerobatic training but as you said this sometimes gives...

    I agree with you: a VFR, EFR or IFR pilot shouldn't fly where he/she is not up to the task.

    The high cost: another good reason why some VFR pilots will not take the IFR rating.

    250 hours is a...

    DA (Decision Altitude) on precision approaches (ILS) are usually 200 ft AGL. The other approaches (non precision) have a MDA (Minimum Descent Altitude) usually higher than 200 ft. Every IFR approach...
