Description

Ever thought of learning how to fly multi-engine aeroplanes?

Would the step up in performance and the challenge of greater complexity appeal? Perhaps you're thinking of a career as a professional pilot, for whom such training would be essential. Or perhaps you're drawn by the greater safety of duplicated engines and systems or simply want to have access to another aircraft on the Take Flight Fleet!

Take Flight, in collaboration with Command Pilot Training based at Coventry airport, are now able to offer Multi-Engine Piston (MEP) training. This will be carried out in Take Flight's Beech Duchess, G-TWNN, which is approved for multi-engine piston and instrument rating training.

Entry requirements are simple: an EASA or an ICAO-compliant PPL or CPL, with a minimum of 70 hours PIC.

The course will be based at Wellesbourne and Coventry. There is a minimum of 6 hours flying training, of which 3.5 hours is asymmetric-on one engine. Please be aware that this is a minimum: many take an extra hour or three longer. The course includes at least 7 hours of ground school, and detailed pre-flight briefings. There is an exam of 60 questions, 36 relating to MEP aircraft in general, and 24 of which relate to the aircraft to be used for the skills test-in this case, the Duchess. The pass mark is the usual 75%.

There is a skills test on completion of the course, which takes about 1.25 hours, and this will be done by one of the CPT examiners. This will be Wellesbourne-Wellesbourne, so you'll be on familiar territory. There's a short navigation leg-say 15 minutes-and then steep turns, general handling, an engine shut-down, and then back to Wellesbourne for an overhead join and circuits. On one of those you'll have to demonstrate that you can safely manage an engine failure after take-off, and fly a circuit, approach and go around on one engine, and then land on one engine. Then back to Take Flight for tea and, hopefully, medals.

Revalidation is every 12 months. The course includes differences training on retractable undercarriage and variable pitch propellers, and this will be signed up in your logbook. This covers all relevant SEP and MEP aircraft.

The cost to Take Flight members is very competitive at £2950 (including VAT) that includes 6 hours flying time in the Beech Duchess, 3 landings at Coventry, 7 hours ground school and 6 hours airborne training. The price does not include additional hire over 6 hours, solo aircraft hire of about 1.25 hours for the test or the test fee of around £150. One great advantage of the Coventry base is that we have access to 2 multi-engine flight simulators that are approved for professional pilot training. The one with visuals is £100 plus VAT per hour dual, £60 solo. The other is £60 plus VAT per hour dual. One or 2 hours per student is the most we are likely to use, but these would be invaluable for familiarising you with the aircraft, and for practising.

It would probably be best to do the course in one go over 5 days rather than as separate e.g. weekly lessons, though the latter is certainly possible.
