Your Multi-Engine Rating Road Map

Embark on your journey to obtaining a Multi-Engine Rating with our comprehensive road map, guiding you through every step of the way.

1. Private and/or Commercial Certificates

Although a single engine commercial pilot certificate is not required, it is usually the most practical and cost efficient way to attain a multi-engine commercial pilot certificate.

2. Complex Endorsement

Our Seneca is a complex aircraft, so you will need a complex endorsement either beforehand or during your training.

3. Ground Training

As many ground instruction and study sessions as needed to prepare for the checkride.

4. Dual Flight

There is no set hour requirement, just however long it takes for proficiency. People are typically around ten hours.

5. Check Ride

The checkride, just like all others, consists of an oral and flight portion. Now go have twice the fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

Your most frequently asked questions.

Technically, no. Legally you can even get your private in a multiengine. Most instructors will recommend you do have your Commercial and Instrument beforehand, but it is not a prerequisite.

We are happy to say, we do! We offer an accelerated multi-engine rating program in Minot and in Grand Forks.

The multi-engine and MEI are two separate ratings. You must complete your multi before your MEI. Talk with your instructor beforehand and let them know your intentions. That way they can adjust the game plan accordingly to help you reach your goals safely and efficiently.
