Blackbushe aviation

Many pilots seek to extend their range and opt for a multi-engine rating. This type rating allows a pilot to fly a twin piston engine aircraft such as the Piper Seneca, which has six seats and can fly over large conurbations such as London, airspace permitting.

The multi-engine rating course comprises of a minimum of 6 hours flight training: 2.5 hours general handling and 3.5 hours single engine handling covering all types of emergencies. The course culminates in a flight test and oral exam taken at Blackbushe Aviation.

The multi-engine class rating is valid for 12 months.

To revalidate the multi-engine class rating you will need to undertake a proficiency check with an examiner within the 3 months preceding expiry. In addition, if 10 route sectors have not been flown within the 12 months validity period, then a route sector shall also be flown with the examiner during the proficiency check.

Note: A route sector is at least 15 minutes in the cruise.

If you hold an IR you will also revalidate this during the proficiency check.
