Commercial Pilot – Multi-Engine (CPL/ME)

The Commercial Multi-Engine Course normally takes about 6 months to complete.  It consists of flight and ground instruction.  The ground training consists of three parts:  one-on-one ground instruction from an FAA Certified Flight Instructor, instructor-guided home study program, and an online test preparation program to prepare the student for the FAA Commercial Pilot written exam. The primary objective of ground training is to provide students with well above normal Commercial Pilot and instrument rating level knowledge in understanding the following subjects:

Aircraft systems, airworthiness, aerodynamics, loading, performance, airspace, airports, air traffic control, safety of flight, high altitude operations, aviation weather and weather charts, recognition of critical weather situations and wind-shear avoidance, federal aviation regulations, aeronautical information manual, navigation planning, avionics, flight physiology, aeronautical decision making and judgment, crew resource management (CRM).

The flight training is conducted in the Piper Seneca aircraft.  The student must successfully complete all flight training maneuvers outlined in the FAA practical test standards before the final evaluation for the Multi-Engine Commercial Pilot Certificate. Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be issued the FAA Commercial Pilot Certificate with Airplane Multi-Engine Land.
