Multi Engine


Commercial Multi-Engine Add-On Package

The Multi-Engine Course


The Commercial Multi-Engine Add-On Rating is a fun rating to add to your existing Commercial Single-Engine Certificate. There is no knowledge test required and no minimum time – just ground and flight training to achieve proficiency and then a practical test (checkride) with
an Examiner (DPE).

As an “Add-On” rating you will be working on both VFR and IFR operations while getting familiar with the operation of a twin-engine aircraft with complex systems (retractable gear and constant speed props). Much of the training is getting used to working with the additional systems, getting used to flying with a flow (backed up by checklist) and coming to grips with the additional decisions required when flying a twin (take-off go/no-go decisions).

The rating is a steep learning curve that takes a single-engine pilot from feeling like a beginner again to feeling like a pro at the controls of a far more complex machine.

Most pilots can reach required proficiency to be ready for the Checkride in 10-15 hours of training.

Ground Training

Ground knowledge training includes the aerodynamic differences of flying a twin (vs a single), asymmetric thrust – flying with single engine, drag, weight and balance for larger airplanes, performance and take-off decisions, complex systems and others.


We offer three basic Multi-Engine packages. Pilots will normally achieve the Multi-Engine Add-On Rating in the 15-hour package. However, most airlines require 25 hours of multi-engine time. Some require 50 or more, and most will look more favorably at an applicant with more

multi-engine hours.
