Multi-Engine Piston (MEP)
Of the Course
The Multi-Engine Piston – MEP is a step forward to your aviation dream.
Attaining the EASA Multi-Engine Piston – MEP (A) rating extends privileges of EASA 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 piston and a multi-engine piston aircraft.
Once MEP(A) training is completed, the qualification will be added on your EASA Private Pilot License – PPL(A) or EASA 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.
Theoretical preparation takes 15 hours with an instructor, during which you will become familiar with the multi-engine piston 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 flight training for a holder of IR(A) takes 11 hours (6 hours VFR and 5 IFR) of dual flight instruction.
The training is divided into 3 stages.
You will become familiar with the multi-engine airplane used in the training course and with the human factors concepts and issues relating to multi-engine operations. Additionally, through the introduction and review of multi-engine maneuvers and procedures, you will learn to fly the multi-engine airplane under day VFR conditions during normal two-engine operations. Minimum requirements according to Part FCL (flight crew licensing) is 2.5 hours during normal operation of an aircraft (with both engines).
