The VFR Over-The-Top Rating (VFR OTT) builds on the knowledge you have learned in your Private Pilot training, and allows you to fly an aircraft under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) above the clouds! If you can meet the weather, skill and equipment requirements, the VFR OTT Rating is a great way to keep your flying options open.
You can start at any time. We provide guided-self study to meet the requirements of the rating, as there is no ground school requirement, or you can have one of our instructors tutor you as necessary. The flight and simulator training is done in conjunction with your schedule.
The VFR OTT Rating allows you to fly your aircraft with all of the privileges of your Private Pilot Licence, but above the clouds as well. You can't fly through them, but if the weather is good at both ends of the flight you can fly above them! The VFR OTT Rating is included in the Commercial Pilot Licence Program.
