Commercial Multi-Engine Add-On Sarasota, Florida

Seeking to add a multi-engine add-on rating to your Commercial Pilot License in Sarasota, Florida? Paragon Flight is the training school of choice. We have two locations: one in Punta Gorda and one in Fort Myers. Each location has the capacity and facilities needed to help pilots earn a wide range of aviation credentials.

Commercial Multi-Engine Add-On Sarasota, FloridaParagon Flight will design your multi-engine rating program to suit your needs. The course will successfully demonstrate, model, and ensure that you know how to navigate the differences between single-engine and multi-engine aircraft. 

The course for a multi-engine add-on takes a week for most. The program consists of the following:

  • 11-15 hours of multi-engine flight time
  • 5 hours of ground instruction
  • 1 ½ hours for the FAA check ride
  • Supplemental training materials.

The most important aspect of multi-engine training is learning how to react should an engine fail. Pilots can experience losses of both power and control when an engine fails. The 50% reduction in power creates control loss as the aircraft’s thrust becomes asymmetrical. 

During multi-engine training at Paragon Flight, you will fly the standard in the industry for such training: the Piper PA-44 Seminole. It flies predictably, has a safe construction, and uses straightforward systems. As are all of our aircraft, the Piper PA-44 Seminole within our fleet is equipped with advanced avionics and Glass Cockpit tech.
