FAA

Multi-Engine Land (MEL)

Overview
Of the Course

The FAA Multi-Engine Land – MEL (A) is a step forward to your aviation dream. 

Attaining the FAA Multi-Engine Land – MEL (A) rating extends privileges of FAA Private Pilot License – PPL (A) and Commercial Pilot License – CPL (A) which allows you to fly aircraft with more than one engine.

One of the main takeaways of the training is to understand the differences between a single engine land and a multi-engine land aircraft. 

Once you complete your Multi Engine Land training, you will get your MEL(A) qualification added on your FAA Private Pilot License – PPL(A) or FAA Commercial Pilot License – CPL(A).

The Multi Engine Piston rating is valid for 12 months and is renewed with a flight test with a Flight Examiner.

Ground Training

Theoretical preparation takes 5 hours with an instructor, during which you will become familiar with the multi engine land airplane, systems and aerodynamics. You will also learn the procedures and maneuvers that apply in multi-engine airplane during normal and engine-out operations under VFR and IFR.
The ground training is approximated to be about 5 hours. There is no minimum required time by the FAA.

Flight Training

The flight training takes 10 hours minimum of dual flight instruction including instruction in engine failures and asymmetric configuration.
The training is divided into 5 stages:

  • Stage 1: Departure

  • Stage 2: Airwork

  • Stage 3: Arrivals and Landing Procedures

  • Stage 4: Abnormal and Emergency Procedures

  • Stage 5: Simulated Asymmetric Flight
