I have been wanting to hold an IFR Rating for over 30 years but I always had an excuse for myself not to proceed or even start it. I knew it would be challenging and I had many people tell me how difficult the INRAT exam was which was also discouraging. For years I asked myself...could I even do it? Shortly after I finally made the commitment to take my IFR rating, I came across INRAT Exam Prep and the timing was perfect. I found the course to be well organized, and all the information was available to me to pass the INRAT exam. I had a lot of questions as I went through the course. The answers were provided to me in a timely and professional manner. There were no dumb questions... At no time did I feel intimidated and the online course made the process much easier for me and my lifestyle. I would highly recommend INRAT Exam Prep to anyone who is considering an IFR Rating or having the feeling of "INRAT intimidation" as I had for so many years. I even took it a step further and did my flight training with Dean as well which was further added-value. The INRAT exam was certainly not easy, but Dean made my experience much more comfortable and I passed the exam just yesterday! I appreciate all you have done for me. Thank you Dean and Jason!
