The plane is currently not IFR certified. The primary flight instruments are in a standard T configuration. There are 2 VOR CDI's which can be used for VOR/ILS, (or GPS if the unit is updated). The plane could be used for basic IFR skills training, (instrument scan and VOR , ILS, (GPS if updated) approaches. This is old school standard six-pack stuff. Beyond basic IFR training or the occasional approach a Beech sport is not a hard IFR platform.
The plane is light and responsive on all axes. It rolls easily in either direction. It is almost impossible to spin. In a couple of attempts I could not get it past an incipient spin
