Double the Fun
Flying multi-engine airplanes is a thrill, but comes with new challenges.
Is more engines safer?
As we’ve discussed on our blog, multi-engine flying is only safer if you have the discipline to make it safer. Multi-engine airplanes have redundancy, but flying a twin with one engine inoperative comes with a whole host of performance, stick and rudder, and systems considerations that pilots must train for.
We firmly believe that there is no “amateur” multi-engine flying. You either train, plan, and fly like a professional or you put your passengers at tremendous risk. For that reason, this course is specifically tailored to pilots seeking to approach multi-engine flying like professionals.
Here’s what’s in your course.
Simple, Effective Lectures
Concise online lectures that use a virtual blackboard style to help you grasp complex aviation concepts.
Full-cover handouts to help you visualize multi-engine aerodynamics and a comprehensive end of course study guide.
We thoroughly distinguish between what’s legal and what’s safe.
Comprehensive discussion of multi-engine aerodynamics so that pilots understand the “why” behind the “what.”
The right mindset is critical to flying light twins safely.
This is the product of a team with thousands of multi-engine hours in light twins, turboprops, and transport-category jets like the Boeing 737.
Apply theory through real-world scenarios and practice exercises.

There’s no written exam for a Multi-Engine add-on, but training is expensive and students with a solid grasp of what’s going on will save money in training. That’s where we come in! The multi-engine course comes with:
- A course totally dedicated to helping you understand how to fly multi-engine airplanes safely in the real world
- Heavy emphasis on simplifying multi-engine flying in ways that pay dividends throughout your career.
- A deep dive into the complicated Cessna 310 fuel system: if you can understand how to learn that system, you can apply the knowledge to other makes and models, even in transport category airplanes.
- The entire resources directory
- A comprehensive end of course study guide
- The Multi-Engine classroom
- The ability to direct message your instructors, who are experienced multi-engine turboprop and jet pilots.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a multi-engine rating?
A multi-engine rating is an additional qualification that allows a pilot to operate aircraft with multiple engines. It enhances a pilot’s skills and provides opportunities to fly more complex airplanes.
What are the prerequisites for the multi-engine course?
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Why should I consider getting a multi-engine rating?
A multi-engine rating provides increased performance, redundancy, and safety. It can be a stepping stone to careers as an airline pilot or corporate pilot.
Is it more challenging to fly a multi-engine aircraft?
With both engines operating, flying a multi-engine airplane is not that different from operating a single-engine airplane. But multi-engine airplanes are challenging to control in engine-out situations, and managing that comprises the majority of multi-engine training.
How can this course help students save money in flight training?
Flying multi-engine airplanes is expensive! Academic proficiency in the fundamentals of multi-engine flying empowers pilots to progress faster in the airplane, reducing total training time and cost.
Do I need to complete the course in a set timeframe?
The advantage of online ground school is that you can complete it at your own pace!
How is this multi-engine course different from others?
Our multi-engine course is developed and led by a team of instructors with diverse multi-engine experience in light twins, large turboprops, and transport-category jets. Some are even instructors for their airliners. They know how these multi-engine fundamentals translate to the airline world, making this course ideal for pilots aspiring to careers flying jets.
