What's a Multi-Engine Rating?
Sunday, March 09, 2008
If you're just learning the language of aircraft and flying, one of the ratings you'll want to have as soon as possible is a Multi-Engine rating.
What are the requirements? You need to have a private pilot certificate first. For the Multi-Engine rating, there is no minimum age requirement, no formal ground school, and no FAA regulated required flight time. However, most flight schools and insurance companies have a minimum flight time: Phoenix East requires at least 15 hours in the twin-engine DA-42 or PA-34, as well as at least 15 hours of oral instruction, to be competent enough to pass your checkride.
Why should you want this rating? It's simple: Most companies, charter coperations and airlines use multi-engine airplanes.
What does it cost? Phoenix East Aviation has an excellent Multi-Engine Course. The cost for 15 hours of dual time, plus 15 hours of oral instruction is $6,263.
How long does it take? If you are focused, you should be able to pass your check ride and achieve this rating in about a month or less.
Call Phoenix East at 1-800-868-4359 (US) or 1-386-258-0703 (worldwide) and talk to an Admissions Officer for details.
