MULTI-ENGINE INSTRUCTOR RATING COURSE [MEI]
You may want to instruct others in receiving their Multi-Engine rating. To obtain an MEI rating, a flight instructor must already have his/her CFI rating and five hours of pilot-in-command time of whichever multi-engine plane he is instructing in. Becoming an MEI is a great way for the pilot to build hours in a multi-engine aircraft while furthering his/her knowledge of multi-engine operations and techniques. This course covers multi-engine aerodynamics, systems & performance, engine-out operations & instrument flight through actual airborne & graphic sequences.
The course is designed to provide the multi-engine pilot with the multi-engine flight training necessary to meet the (MEI) requirements. In order to be eligible for the Multi-Engine Instructor Rating you must fulfill the 15 hour Pilot in Command requirement.
