Multi-Engine Add-on Information

This multi-engine “add-on” rating is meant to be added to an existing Private Pilot Certificate or Commercial Pilot Certificate. If you have an instrument rating, you will want to get your Multi-Engine rating with instrument privileges. There are now FAA required knowledge tests or minimum time requirements. However, you are required to demonstrate proficiency to an examiner which is why receiving professional ground and multi-engine flight training is a must. The average amount of flight time needed for the multi-engine rating is 8 hours depending on the student. Our multi-engine course includes up to 8 hours of training, after which an hourly rate for the aircraft and instructor will be applied. The ME course includes up to 8 hours; if more than 8 hours are required an hourly rate for the aircraft and instructor will be applied.
