Frequently Asked Questions:
Is there an age limit?
There is no specific age limit for a multi-engine rating. However, you must be at least eligible for a private pilot certificate (16 years old).
What pilot certificates are required?
Since multi-engine is a rating you must first hold at least a private pilot certificate. Most people get an instrument rating before the multi-engine rating. An instrument rating is not required but it is recommended because it will strengthen your flying skills in preparation for the complex, sometimes high-performance twins.
How long depends on you. It’s all based on proficiency. Fly with your instructor until you are confident and proficient in the required maneuvers.
How much depends on you. Since the rating is based on proficiency its hard to put a fixed number on the cost. The best way to figure the cost is to come and see us at Brett Aviation and one of our instructors will work with you to determine approximately how much time is required.
