Starting with a Single-Engine Certificate
Pilots generally begin learning with a single-engine aircraft. Just like with riding a bike or driving a car, you start slowly and progress incrementally. The ease of operating a single-engine craft allows pilots to learn the basics before moving on to multi-engine training.
Moving on to Multi-Engine Planes
Multi-engine planes are more complicated. They also reach faster speeds and higher heights because of the increased power. The aerodynamics of multi-engine aircraft require pilots to learn new skills and take on added responsibility.
Many consider multi-engine aircraft to be safer since two engines mean there’s a backup if an engine goes out. However, flying with a single engine in a multi-engine craft can be tricky and requires special skills and maneuvers. At Sierra Charlie, our instructors will explain, demonstrate, and instruct pilots to appropriately react in single-engine situations during every phase of flight.
Part of learning to fly a multi-engine plane is becoming accustomed to the differences of flight. The differences in weight, engines, and propeller positioning will have an effect on performance and will require time to adjust.
In addition to thoroughly understanding the consequences of a multi-engine plane’s aerodynamics, student-pilots will need to understand the limitations of the plane’s performance as well as its complicated systems.
