Multi Engine Rating Program

A Multi Engine Rating enables you to serve as the pilot-in-command (PIC) of aircraft equipped with multiple engines. Obtaining this rating is essential for aspiring pilots looking to pursue a career in the airline industry or enhance their skill level which looks great to potential employers in the aviation field, especially when it comes from a school known for its high-quality training.

Course Description

At First Landings Aviation, you’ll train in a well-maintained Tecnam P2006t, a 4-seat twin engine airplane equipped for IFR flight. 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.

Why should you get a Multi-Engine Rating?

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. To complete a trip quickly, consider using a multi-engine airplane.

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 for the time being, however 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

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. Ask us about our accelerated multi-engine training that we have available. 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 up 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.

We offer a 1-hour discovery flight to give you the opportunity to experience taking to the air. A certified flight instructor will demonstrate preflight and flying techniques before you climb aboard, will taxi down the runway and before you know it, you are in the air! During the flight, you will have the opportunity to control the plane through the sky and try out several maneuvers before the pilot takes over again for landing. At the subsequent debriefing, guests pen their first logbook entry and review their performance.
