I am finishing up my private pilot's license and I want to move on to my
Instrument rating. Does anyone know the specific requirements for me, and
what avionics are required in the plane?

airplane, helicopter, or powered-lift rating appropriate to the
instrument rating sought.
# You must have logged at least:

* 50 hours of cross-country time as PIC
* 40 hours of actual and/or simulated instrument time
* 15 hours of training from an authorized instructor
* At least 3 hours must be in preparation for the practical test,
within 60 days of that test
* A cross-country flight of at least 250nm, under IFR

# During your training, you'll learn about:

* Preflight preparation
* Preflight procedures
* Air traffic control clearances and procedures
* Flight by reference to instruments
* Navigations systems
* Instrument approach procedures
* Emergency operations
* Postflight procedures
(Requirements defined in 14 CFR 61.65; summary taken from

Avionics:
Day/Night VFR (as appropriate) equipment PLUS:
Two-way radios appropriate to the ground facilities to be used
Rate-of-turn indicator
Slip-skid indicator
Sensitive (adjustable) altimeter

If you have any questions, or want to discuss things in more depth,
please feel free to e-mail me at [email]dave (AT) flight-instruction (DOT) com[/email] and I'll be
happy to answer them.
