What a Multi-Engine Rating Allows

A pilot must have a multi-engine rating to fly an aircraft that has more than single engine capabilities. The heavier-duty plane flies faster and higher, with different challenges and rewarding thrills. Our course can have you ready to serve as PIC in one short week!

Multi-Engine Commercial Pilot Course Chandler, AZAirline pilots must have this rating, so if you have a job as a jetliner in mind, this rating will promote your planned advancement. While private and commercial pilots can pursue this add-on, it makes more sense to have the commercial certificate first if your endeavors are career motivated.

The FAA requires that multi-engine training includes:

  • Pre-flight preparation
  • Pre-flight procedures
  • Airport operations
  • Takeoffs
  • Landings
  • Go-arounds
  • Performance maneuvers
  • Navigation
  • Slow flight and stall scenarios
  • Emergency maneuvers
  • Multi-engine systems
  • High-altitude operations
  • Post-flight procedures

Pursuing a multi-engine rating requires that a pilot already be certified as a commercial or private pilot. After passing a checkride, pilots have their certificates enhanced with a multi-engine rating add-on.

Sierra Charlie Aviation is authorized by FAR Part 61 governance, so the scheduling and order can be customized for pilots. The typical course we provide follows a schedule of Days 1-4 being filled with ground and practical training, Day 5 seeing a progress check with our head flight instructor, Day 6 being free, and Day 7 including the required checkride.

The checkride will include a verbal component as well as real flight evidence of multi-engine flight skills.

During ground instruction, training includes:

  • Aircraft systems
  • Principles of flight for normal flight and single-engine situations
  • Aerodynamics
  • Weight and balance
