Multi-Engine Rating

In most cases, pilots pursuing a career in aviation will eventually make the jump to multi-engine, turbo-prop or jet airplanes. In order to fly these larger and more capable aircraft, pilots must obtain a multi-engine rating. 

Planning on Flying Twin Engines or More? You'll Need a Multi Rating


Pilots with a multi-engine rating enjoy an incredible improvement in the performance and capabilities of multi-engine aircraft. The multi-engine rating training focuses on both VFR and IFR flight plans. While there aren't technically a minimum number of hours required for this rating, it does require an instructor endorsement before the final checkride.
