weeks needed to complete IFR?

Asked by: 864 views General Aviation

Hey guys... I am going to take off work and go full time to complete the IFR training.  You guys have some ball park ideas of what I am looking at.  My instructor said 4-6 weeks, but I am thinking that if I am really doing a lot of hard work on getting the XC done it could be quicker than that.  Any ideas?

    Depending on the program, I attended a flight school where the instructor was able to give me his complete attention, we finished in a week. I obviously had most of my cross-country time and my written complete.

    Weather has to cooperate and quicly picking up on the concepts is a must. After completing that, two weeks would have been a better fit for me.

    The more frequent you make your lessons the better.

    so assuming I have clear weather and go hard, 4 weeks is more than realistic? I am starting with 47 hours and just my ppl and next week I am going to start going full time just on IFR.
