Multi-Engine Add-On Fort Myers, FL
Flight instruction to achieve a multi-engine add-on is a worthwhile pursuit available here at Paragon Flight in Fort Myers, FL. Pilots generally begin their careers with single-engine aircraft and then graduate to planes with an extra engine. The ensuing increase of power, faster speeds, and higher heights explains the need for additional training. We offer an excellent program that you can complete in as little as 7 days.
Pilots Start with Single-Engine Training
Before learning to fly a multi-engine plane, pilots need to master the single-engine plane. Any complicated skill should be learned as a process, and Paragon Flight offers a strong foundation to build upon as well as the further training required as you continue your aviation education. Our programs can meet any pilot with further experiences, regardless of his or her skill level.
Progressing to Greater Power
With an additional engine, a twin-engine plane increases in complexity and difficulty flying. These planes are heavier and faster, so pilots must master a different skill set to fly them safely. With a multi-engine plane, you’ll have a backup engine if one fails, but this fact also means that the plane will be out of balance when that engine fails. Single-engine scenarios are perhaps the most dangerous situation you’ll face as a multi-engine pilot, so our course will cover this situation in depth in every stage of flight.
Our course demonstrates and emphasizes the essentials to flying multi-engine planes. Students need to learn the limitations of these planes as well as the keys to performance and safety.
The training course here at Paragon Flight is 7-days long. The multi-engine rating is meant to be added to a private or commercial pilot’s certificate. For pilots interested in aviation as a career, the commercial pilot’s certificate is the place to start. The course itself includes 5 hours of ground instruction 11 ½ hours of flight time, and 1 ½ hours for the checkride. Pilots who desire additional flight time can choose the 15-hour course instead of the 13-hour program.
