Training Breakdown

Ground & Simulator Training

Understanding the added complexities of multi-engine aircraft, and the increased workload during emergencies is an important part of training. Use of VFA’s simulators provides an excellent way to practice multi-engine flying, and emergency procedures practice before getting into the real airplane.

Flight Training

After learning basic operating principals in the simulator, the next step is to start flying VFA’s Tecnam P2006T. The Tecnam provides an excellent training platform, combining excellent handling characteristics with 100 horse power Rotax engines which provide excellent single engine performance. Flight training will cover the normal and emergency procedures necessary to make you a safe Multi-Engine Pilot.

Instructor Endorsement

Your instructor will give you multiple endorsements throughout your training, allowing you to take your Checkride with a Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE).

ORAL & PRACTICAL TEST

After meeting all of the FAA Multi-Engine Land Rating requirements and your instructor has determined you have mastered the maneuvers, and demonstrated the applicable aeronautical knowledge, you will take the Oral Exam and Practical Test with a Designated Pilot Examiner. The Oral Exam and Practical Test will evaluate you on the safe and proper handling of a Multi-Engine aircraft. Upon successful completion, you will be issued your Multi-Engine Land Rating.
