Multi Engine Rating

The Multi Engine Rating consists of approximately 10 to 12 hours in our Piper Seneca II and one flight in our Redbird Simulator. There is no written exam or minimum TC required time.

IFR Rating

Whether you want an IFR Rating to fly in the Cirrus and C172 (Group 3) or a Multi Engine IFR (Group 1) for those aspiring career pilots, we can help you. With our Redbird simulator we are able to have you fly in all kinds of weather at several different airports. We don’t just want you to pass your exams, we want to train you to be the best.

Most of the training will be done in the simulator but a portion of it will be in the aircraft. You will have to write the INRAT with a score of at least 70% then pass a flight test.

Note that with a Groupe 1 rating for multi engine aircrafts, you can also fly IFR in single engine aircrafts.
