Multi Engine Flight Training And Time Building

Multi Engine Flight Training And Time BuildingAn applicant for a multi-engine rating is usually already a private pilot or commercial pilot. Most flight school and insurance companies have a minimum flight time for the mult-engine rating, usually somewhere between 5 to 10 hours of dual instruction.

FAR 61.63(c) Additional class rating. Any person who applies for an additional class rating to be added on a pilot certificate:
  • Must have an endorsement in his or her logbook or training record from an authorized instructor and that endorsement must attest that the applicant has been found competent in the aeronautical knowledge areas appropriate to the pilot certificate for the aircraft class rating sought;
  • Must have an endorsement in his or her logbook or training record from an authorized instructor, and that endorsement must attest that the applicant has been found proficient in the areas of operation appropriate to the pilot certificate for the aircraft class rating sought;
  • Must pass the required practical test that is appropriate to the pilot certificate for the aircraft class rating sought;
  • Need not meet the specified training time requirements prescribed by this part that apply to the pilot certificate for the aircraft class rating sought unless the person holds a lighter-than-air category rating with a balloon class rating and is seeking an airship class rating and
  • Need not take an additional knowledge test, provided the applicant holds an airplane, rotorcraft, powered-lift, or airship rating at that pilot certificate level.
FAA Multi-Engine Add-On Training

Why learn to fly multi-engine aircraft?

  • Extra Engine – additional engine means additional safety, redundancy
  • Faster Travel – ability to travel faster to a destination
  • Career Building – multi-engine experience required prior to entering professional aviation industry
  • Personal Challenge – upgrade your knowledge, judgement, and piloting skill
What are the requirements for the Multi-Engine Land add-on?

There are no minimum time requirements for the MEL class rating, however, only an instructor sign-off for both flight and ground training. The Multi-Engine Land rating is “added on” to your existing Single-Engine Land Private, Commercial, or ATP certificate. For the full add-on, both VFR and IFR operations will be emphasized, however, there are options for VFR Only and Center-Line Thrust restricted certification.

Generally, the multi-engine training course is at minimum 10 hours of flight time in the Piper Seminole and 5 hours of ground training with an MEI. Depending on proficiency, availability, and skill, you may need more than the recommended minimum times. Also, there is no additional written exam for the add-on, only the required oral and flight exams.
