Flying a multi-engine aircraft presents new challenges to the pilot. A combination of two engines (harder to manage) and drastically higher performance mandate increased requirements & responsibility on the Pilot’s part.
Appropriate training is crucial to being a safe and competent multi-engine aircraft pilot. The multi-engine rating program adds multi-engine privileges to your existing Private or Commercial Pilot Certificate. This course includes all necessary ground and flight instructions required by the Multi-Engine Practical Test Standards.
Having a Multi Engine Rating Training brings along several advantages:
Multi Engine Aircrafts are safer than their single engine counterparts. In the case of engine failure in single engine aircrafts, you are forced to land instantly. Whereas in Multi Engine Aircrafts, you can still fly with the other engine and land at a safe runway.
There is no DGCA minimum required time to receive your Multi-Engine Rating. Instructors generally give authorization to take DGCA practicals with ~15 Hours of flying.
Increased Job Opportunities
Having a Multi-Engine Rating enables you to fly as pilot-in-command in aircrafts that have more than one engine. This includes many private VIP charter companies, and also those in medicate, tourism, rescue operations and other related sectors.
Airlines greatly prefer to hire pilots with a Multi Engine Rating. This reflets in quicker job placement and a higher salary package.
If there was one word used to describe the community at Airline industry: Elegant.
Through work, you get to meet kind and interesting people everyday, providing you with opportunities to make lasting connections.
Multi-Engine Aircrafts are also faster, larger (higher payload and seating capacity), and cooler than the single engine aircrafts. Flying in the former can therefore be more satisfying and provide a better experience.
