Next-Level Aviation Skills

A Multi-Engine rating opens the gates to experience with new and exciting aircraft. Most high-performance and long-range aircraft have more than one engine. This rating gives you the knowledge necessary to safely and effectively control a multiple-engine aircraft with retractable gear and fly safely with one engine or two.

If you’re planning for a career as a pilot, you’ll need a minimum of 25 hours of flight time in a multi-engine aircraft to be hired to fly passengers or cargo. You might also be interested in learning more about our Career Pilot program. We want you to become a highly qualified pilot so that you’re hired with a great company.

Achieving a Multi-engine rating at AlphaFlight combines flight time, Redbird Simulator sessions, and ground instruction. You’ll gain new skills:


Awareness of aerodynamic differences between multi- and single-engine planes and how they affect flight performance


Understanding the specifications of various aircraft


Proficiency with engine failure in a multi-engine aircraft

Prepare for the Worst-case Scenario

An important part of Multi-Engine Training is learning how to negotiate an engine failure or emergency successfully. You may think that operating two engines and two systems is challenging enough, but when one of those engines fails, it’s like flying a completely different plane. 

One of the key benefits of training with us is experiencing virtual flight deck emergencies with the full-motion Redbird Simulator along with the standard drills and maneuvers our experienced staff will teach you in the air.  After you complete this certificate, you’ll know how to react to an engine failure and the role that aerodynamic elements play in a safe landing.

Q & A.

Are any licenses required before beginning Multi-engine Training?

You must have a Private Pilot License along with an Instrument Rating before you can enroll in this training. We can help you plan a full training schedule if you’re starting from scratch or already qualified to begin multi-engine training. Call us today!

Is a Multi-engine rating required to become a commercial pilot?

There are single-engine commercial pilots and multi-engine commercial pilots. The key meaning of “commercial” in aviation is the qualification to fly for hire.
