COMMERCIAL MULTI-ENGINE CERTIFICATE
Multi-engine airplanes give you an added level of safety when you're up in the air and having the understanding of multi-engine performance and aerodynamics is critical in making you a safe and competent multi-engine pilot. Multi-Engine Rating is essential for pilots seeking a professional flying career and a logical step for other pilots transitioning to high performance airplanes. As a rating, or "add-on", it is added to an existing Private or Commercial Pilot Certificate. In either case, the training is essentially the same.
Commercial Pilots wishing to have a long prosperous career in aviation must obtain a Multi Engine Commercial License and must build between 100 to 200 hours of Multi Engine hours to be desirable for employment. Students wishing to be as desirable as possible will choose to flight train in a Multi Engine airplane. This course of action requires additional flight training expenses. This course is designed in lieu of a student obtaining a Commercial Single Engine License first, then obtaining their Multi Engine Instructor’s License (MEI), and then building their Multi Engine hours through being a paid flight instructor.
The Private Pilot Multi Engine Land Course is designed to teach the student the skills and knowledge necessary to become a safe and proficient multi-engine pilot. This course covers multi-engine aerodynamics, systems and performace, engine-out operations and instrument flight through actual ariborne and graphic sequences.
Ground Training Includes:
Introduction to multi-engine operations, aircraft systems, weight and balance, performance limitations, multi-engine aerodynamics and maneuvers/procedures, engine out aerodynamics and operations, emergency operations, and day cross countries. The applicant will demonstrate, through oral and written tests that the necessary aeronautical knowledge has been obtained for an airplane multi-engine land class rating.
Flight Training Includes:
Steep turns, stalls, slow flight, Vmc demonstration, emergency descent, engine out emergency procedures (enroute and in the traffic pattern), engine feathering and restart, normal and crosswind take-offs and landings, aborted take-offs and simulated single engine landings.
Students must be at least 17 years of age
10 hours of flight time, as well as 8 hours of ground instruction
Hold at least a 2nd Class Medical
Hold a Commercial Pilot’s License
The commercial multi-engine rating course includes about 10 hours of flight instruction and 8 hours of ground instruction in our Seneca II aircraft.
