PRIVATE MULTI-ENGINE LAND TRAINING (ADD ON)

Multi-Engine Land rated pilots will experience the remarkable improvement in aircraft performance capability along with an increase in speed, power, and rate of climb. Managing the complexity and workload of a multi-engine aircraft is both exhilarating and rewarding.

The multi-engine land rating is an “add-on” to an existing single-engine land private, commercial, or ATP certificate. For this rating, both VFR and IFR operations will be emphasized. There are no minimum time requirements for the multi-engine training prior to taking the check ride. There is no written exam, only an oral exam and practical check ride are required.

*Based on the FAA minimum flight training and Sierra’s estimated flight and ground instruction hours the following is the estimated cost:

Dual Flight Hours (PA-44) – 10 hours @ $425.00 per hour = $4,250.00
Simulator (with instructor) – 4 hours @ $160.00 per hour = $640.00
1 on 1 Ground School – 15 hours @ $85.00 per hour = $1,275.00.
Pre/Post – 7 hours @ $85.00 per hour = $595.00.
Application Fee - $150.00 (Non-refundable)
