Multi-engine Training

Your multi-engine add-on can be completed in as little as a couple days.  Our instructors are highly trained and follow a proven training curriculum.

Fun

With the addition of a second engine comes a higher workload and more systems.  But it also adds more capabilities and challenges, adding a multi-engine rating increases your flying fun factor.

Multi-Engine Rating

At First Landings Aviation, you’ll train in a well-maintained Tecnam P2006t, a 4-seat twin engine airplane that is nicely equipped for IFR flight. Employers will like the fact that you have multi-engine experience, especially when it comes from a school known for its high quality training.

If you do not aspire to a career in professional aviation, remember that many hobbyist pilots fly multi-engine airplanes for the greater range and cargo capabilities as well as the security of flying with a second engine. Consider a multi-engine rating add-on which will expand your skill set and satisfies the FAA’s flight review requirement.

6 Reasons To Add A Multi-Engine Rating To Your Pilot Certificate

Have you ever thought about adding a multi-engine rating to your pilot certificate? Here’s why you should start training next week…

1) Two engines are (usually) safer than one.

If you begin having engine trouble, your only solution in a single engine airplane is to land immediately. With more than one engine, you can continue flying toward a more suitable landing spot if you have a mechanical problem with an engine.

2) You’ll fly faster.

Most multi-engine airplanes are substantially faster than similarly sized single engine counterparts. If you want to get a trip done quickly, a multi-engine airplane might be the best bet for you.

3) How about a size upgrade?

Whether it’s carrying more passengers or more equipment, multi-engine airplanes usually have a higher available payload than single engine aircraft of similar size. Plus, they look pretty cool on the ramp!

4) Multi-Engine flight time is valuable.

In the past, airlines and charter companies have required new hire pilots to apply with hundreds of multi-engine flight hours. The hiring market is booming right now, and many of those requirements have disappeared. But that won’t be the case forever!

The more multi-engine time you have, the more competitive you’ll be in a hiring market.

5) Getting a MEL add-on rating is easy! And, fast track courses are available.

According to FAR 61.63(c), there is no minimum time requirement to add a multi-engine rating to your pilot certificate under Part 61, and you don’t have to take a new FAA written test! After 10-15 hours of flight training, your multi-engine instructor can sign you off to take the FAA practical test. For many people, a multi-engine add-on can be accomplished over just a few weeks.

Adding an MEL rating will make you a better, more confident pilot. Reference the FAA Private Pilot or Commercial Pilot ACS to see what your training requirements are.

6) Open your doors to more job opportunities.

If you want to be a professional pilot, full time or part time, having a multi-engine rating will open the doors to many more job opportunities. Many charter companies fly light twins like Cessna 414s or King Airs, with clients on board.

“I am so grateful that I chose First Landings Aviation for attaining my sport pilot rating. The instructors at First Landings Aviation made my two weeks of intensive flight training a very pleasant experience. The Apopka Airport is a perfect facility to train at. The aircraft that you use for training are new, state of the art designs, that are not only fun and economical to fly, but expose the new aviator to the latest “glass” cockpit and state of the art electronics.

Having had the opportunity to fly with both you and Adam, I can say that you are both great aviators – in addition to being wonderful instructors. I really appreciate the efforts you went to to accommodate my specific training needs. Your training was flexible, comprehensive, and effective.

I plan on passing on the word about First Landings Aviation and look forward to flying with you as often as possible in the future. As you can see in the attached photo, I am very proud of what you allowed me to accomplish!”

Thank you again!

I have had an Icon A5 light sport airplane on order since 2008. I had been researching sport pilot flight schools and not finding any good options in the Orlando area. I was almost resigned to getting a private pilot license when I ran into Chris and Adam at the Sebring Sport Aviation show. I was impressed with what they were offering and decided to train with them. 

It turned out to be a great decision for a number of reasons. Adam, Chris and now Jaki are great enthusiastic instructors and genuinely great people, that are truly passionate about teaching. They have an efficient professional operation with a big emphasis on safety. The planes are new and meticulously maintained. Scheduling is easy and flexible. The Apopka airport is an ideal location for the school. I have friends that have trained at some of the busier towered airports. They spend much of their time waiting in line to take off and then are limited to the number of touch and goes. At the relatively quiet Apopka airport all your training time is spent focusing on the things that advance your aviation skills.

I was so impressed with First Landings I decided to provide their second plane.

Since I was a kid I had the desire to be a pilot and like many people it was very difficult for me to pay for the lessons. With a household of seven and all of the added expenses I kept on postponing my dream and with a military career that got very busy after 9-11 it was virtually impossible to realize my dream. I retired from the Army in February 2009 and a short time after that I found out about the sport pilot rating.

Like many I am very proud to be one of the many students that Chris and Adam trained to become a pilot, they have the utmost respect for the sport as well as a professional attitude towards the many hurdles that a student must pass before becoming a Sport Pilot. I feel that they have trained me as a PILOT nothing less than that is their commitment to the sport. I do not envy a Private pilot anymore because I feel that the training I got at FIRST LANDINGS Aviation is just as good or better.

Thanks to Chris and Adam I fly with my wife and sometimes with my kids around Florida with the certainty that I got the best training available anywhere in the U.S. This is why today I can say to anyone who may want to earn their wings to fly with the instructors at First Landings Aviation they make this a fun experience as well as affordable like no other. Thanks Guys.
