Our multi-engine training will teach you the Aerodynamic differences between the single and the multi-engine plane. This is covered, in-depth, in the multi-engine rating test.
Learn in a plane that actually teaches you something about flying a twin.
Learn about the critical engine.
Learn what drag really is...and a lot more!
We will provide all necessary written materials and documentation on multi-engine systems.
The objective of this syllabus is for the student to gain the necessary aeronautical skill, knowledge and experience to meet the requirements of the Multi-Engine Class Rating with an Airplane Category.
It is assumed that candidates have the level of knowledge and skill required for the private or commercial licence (or higher), as applicable, prior to commencing training for this rating. The student must be able to read, speak, and understand the English language and possess either a Private Pilot or Commercial Pilot certificate (or higher) with an Airplane category and Single Engine Land class rating.
The student must have flown and logged a minimum of 100 hours PIC time, including 10 hours on a type with a variable pitch propeller and fuel injected engine.
10 hours of multi-engine experience for students carrying out initial multi-engine class & type rating training and following approved courses.
9 hours of ground training.
5 hours of multi-engine experience for students carrying out additional multi-engine type ratings training and following approved courses.
Ground training as required.
The multi-engine rating is made up of 2 requirements: Aeronautical Skill and Aeronautical Knowledge. This syllabus is written to satisfy the CAAZ approved course requirements. The syllabus is organized into Stages containing training Modules. Each stage must be completed in 30 days, not to be more than 90 days. Each module contains both a flight and ground lesson. This presents an integrated flight training process and will promote easier learning and a more efficient flight training program. Ideally, the ground lesson will be completed prior to the flight.
This syllabus applies to most multi-engine aeroplanes used for training and most cabin-class twins. Since the rating is for a "class" and not a "type", advanced systems should be included in the training when possible, in order to prepare the students for more advanced types that they may encounter later in their careers.
Review questions will test the students understanding of the material covered throughout the ground and airborne lesson. A theory exam (written or oral, at the instructor’s discretion) will be included, testing the student on both the ground and flight training material covered throughout the training. This exam must be passed with a minimum score of 80%, and reconciled to 100%, before the student may take the final class/type rating flight test.
The time necessary for the approved syllabus includes meeting 10 hours of instruction experience and 9 hours of ground instruction. This is a minimum time — many factors play into the finishing flight time: frequency of flying, cooperative weather, airplane and instructor scheduling, and lapses in the flight training process. It is recommended the student fly at least twice a week. This type of schedule produces the most efficient training, and cuts down on review time. If there is a lapse in between flights, it may be necessary to review maneuvers.
