Flying in instrument meteorological conditions (low visibility and clouds) requires additional training. This is the next step for many in their flight training. Further developing ones flying skills with instrument training makes every pilot a more proficient and safer pilot. Having the flexibility to fly during less than ideal weather conditions to safely reach your destination makes getting your instrument rating well worth the effort.
