Multi Engine Rating

 

Flying a multi engine aircraft is a cornerstone of being a Commercial Pilot, and ensures the new CPL individual is as marketable as possible in the General Aviation market place. It is highly recommended that a pilot obtain this rating.

Requirements for the issue of a (VFR) Multi-Engine Class rating:

 

  • Hold a valid Pilots Licence.
  • Have at leaset 70 hours of Pilot in Command time on single engine aircraft and complete a minimum of 6 hours of multi-engine flight time.
  • Successfully complete a practical flight test with a Grade One Designated Flight Examiner (DFE).
  • Applying to the SA-CAA for the new class rating, and paying the appropriate fee.

 

Requirements for the issue of a (IF) Multi-Engine Class rating:
 

If a multi engine instrument rating is sought, you must also meet the requirements for the multi engine instrument rating, as listed previously. This training is in addition to the 6 hours above. This training may be incorporated into your Commercial licence preparation. Of course all of the Commercial Examinations and Instrument training must have been completed before the actual Skills test is carried out.
