Welcome to the PilotEdge I-Ratings! This series of 11 IFR flights can help you become familiar with a wide range of practical techniques and concepts that are important for IFR flight. Each scenario contains helpful resources to help you become comfortable with the concepts that are being presented.

If you’d like to take part, review the Taking the CAT/I Tests guide and the I Ratings Practical Test Standards. After that you are ready to get started with the list below. The program is voluntary, but if you do elect to take part then the flights need to be completed in order.

Note: This series takes place entirely within the ZLA coverage area.
