We do not currently offer initial Flight Instructor training for CFI, MEI, or Instrument Instructor (II). However, if you currently have your CFI or Instrument Instructor (II), then we can assist you in obtaining an MEI. The requirements for an initial instructor certificate are VERY different in terms of time and costs from adding on a rating to your initial instructor certificate
An MEI with Instrument Instructor privileges is permitted to teach Multi/Instrument procedures, which is the typical expectation of clients during multi-engine training. During this course, you will practice your instrument instructor skills in the Multi-Engine to help set your comfort zone when it comes to teaching.
I offer an MEI add-on that is completed in 3 days in one of our Cessna 310L’s! These training slots are for every Sat/Sun/Monday, and they fill up fast. Our schedule is usually running about 6 weeks out on the calendar for anyone seeking a training date.
The following prerequisites apply to the MEI Course:
The MEI course takes only 3 days, where you will finish with approximately 8-9 hours of dual flight instruction (which can be logged as PIC since you already have a multi rating), 6-8 hours of ground instruction, and approximately 1-1.5 hours of PIC time from your check ride flight.
You will also have access to our Multi-Engine training resources, which includes files, videos, and tutorials on how to prepare for your upcoming training as well as the check ride itself. These resources become available to you after reservation of a slot and payment of your deposit for the course.
The MEI Add-on costs $6,500 for use of the aircraft, fuel, and all dual instruction (again, PIC time for the already multi-rated pilot). The examiner fee is currently $700, and you will pay that directly to them at time of check ride.
In addition to our flight training, briefings, and debriefings, I provide access to FAA resources, links to informative training videos, and downloadable study guides/prep sheets as part of your training. Click the link below to go to the Commercial Pilot certificate Training Resources page.
NOTE: Client is responsible for the DPE Fee, their lodging and meals, transportation, etc
There are numerous airplanes in the aviation world being used for multi-engine training. Aztecs, Baron's, Seminoles, Seneca's, Diamonds, etc. But I believe the best combination of speed, performance, and complexity are found in the Cessna 310. A true twin engine airplane, we have two 1967 Cessna 310L’s. Click below to get information on the airplane you will be using for your multi-engine check ride.
We are working very hard to develop a robust mix of materials for assisting my students preparation for the multi-engine training. By clicking the button below, you will be taken to the training resources page for Multi-Engine students. Here you will find what I've developed so far. I will be continually updating this page with my own content, as well as additional materials as those areas of need are discovered from training my students.
