Multi Engine Aeroplane Rating (MEA)

A multi engine endorsement also referred to as a multi engine class rating is designed to train pilots in the operation of an aircraft with more than one engine.
The most common aircraft for getting a twin engine endorsement are the following:

  • Beechcraft BE76 Duchess
  • Piper Comanche PA30
  • Piper Seminole PA- 44
What is Required for a Multi Engine Rating?
  • As a minimum, you must have completed your private pilot licence (PPL) before you can complete the multi engine class rating aeroplane endorsement.
  • Some pilots choose to do a constant speed unit CSU endorsement on a single engine aircraft like the Cessna 182T before transitioning to a twin where they complete the retractable gear endorsement. Or have a Manual Propeller Pitch Control (Piston Engine) Endorsement where no training will be required.
PRE-STUDY MATERIAL – Multi-Engine Command Rating (MECR)
  • Understanding the normal, abnormal and emergency procedures applicable to your aircraft is fundamental in completing your multi rating.
  • Along with the systems and performance characteristics stipulated in the Aircraft Flight Manual & Pilots Operating Handbook (POH).
  • Complete the CASA multi-engine aircraft endorsement questionnaire is the first step before the practical flying component for the particular training aircraft.
  • Manual Propeller Pitch Control (Piston Engine) Endorsement
