Post by shawnthesheep » Fri Nov 01, 2019 9:07 pm

Anyone recently attended the ifr seminar offered by AeroCourse?

If so was it worth it?

I haven't attended one of those courses but I thought the Inrat was the easiest exam of all so far

I attended the seminar. Mark was a really good instructor and he tells you exactly what to study and what not to study, in addition to explaining the content. I would recommend reading the Instrument Procedures Manual, the CAP Gen, looking over the general layout of the CFS and approach plates, and reading the Aerocourse MET book before going there. If I had done that, I would have gained a lot more from the seminar since I would already know some of it.

Aerocourse was an excellent experience for myself. I had Mark as well. Highly recommend it, although additional studying should be done just because IFR flying is something you want to know the ins and outs of as it carries far more dangers with it than VFR.

The Aerocourse INRAT is pretty good IMHO. Did mine in Calgary with Max Mitchell teaching it.. He was pretty knowledgeable and the course covered most if not all of the bases. It is heavier on the INRAT exam side of things than the IFR flying side or at least that is what I felt sitting in there back in 2016. No complaints though since that is what I was there for and it helped a whole lot when I went in to do the actual exam.

If you don't have the time or money to do it, I would still highly recommend the Aerocourse IFR workbook which you can buy separately and it does a good job of simulating the different types of questions that you can expect on your INRAT.

I took it years ago, took the exam a few days after and nearly aced it. If it's anything close to the same yes it's worth it.

That's the whole point.
