Multi-Engine Ground School


Classes Bi-Monthly


An applicant for a multi-engine rating is typically already a private or commercial pilot.

Note: There is no FAA written exam for a multi-engine add-on rating. However, you will need to have acquired multi-engine knowledge (performance, aerodynamics, single-engine performance, emergency operations, etc.) only for your practical test, or checkride.

Further, to receive a multi-engine add-on rating under Federal Regulations Part 61, you’ll need to be trained on the aircraft’s performance and limitations, aircraft systems, performance maneuvers, single-engine operations, spin awareness, emergency operations, and instrument approaches (single-engine). The latter of which if you wish to have an instrument rating with your multi-engine certificate.

Program: 2-Day Comprehensive Mid-Week Course.
Facilitated by Advanced Flight Instructor with extensive knowledge of FAA regulatory and airman’s certification standards (ACS).

Course fee: $290 (not including *knowledge exam fee – approved test center)
FAA approved training manuals recommended for purchase prior to ground school. (not included in course fee)
