What are the basic
requirements for a ME rating?
At Least a Private Pilot Certificate
Practical Test (Checkride)
How long will it take to get my Multi-Engine rating?
The amount of instruction required will vary depending on the individual student. A good estimate would be approximately 10 hours of dual instruction in the aircraft, 2-4 hours of dual instruction in a flight training device, and 5 hours of ground instruction.
What are the steps to get my certificate?
There is no Solo requirement for the Multi-Engine add-on, all of the training will be conducted as dual instruction with a qualified multi engine instructor (MEI). This will include instruction in both the aircraft and in a multi-engine FTD. If you hold an instrument rating currently, some instrument maneuvers and hood work applicable to the multi-engine aircraft will be required as well.
