An instrument rating can allow you to fly more, with less worry about flying in weather that is less than perfect. It can give you the skills needed to avoid, and safely exit, a potentially hazardous zero visibility situation.

Obtaining your instrument rating will allow you to fly aircraft under instrument flight rules (IFR) into weather such as rain showers, fog, areas of low visibility and inside of the clouds.
