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.
Once MEP training is completed, the qualification will be added to your EASA Private Pilot License – PPL or EASA Commercial Pilot License – CPL.
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. The minimum requirement according to Part FCL (flight crew licensing) is 2.5 hours during normal operation of an aircraft (with both engines).
You will learn the techniques and procedures required for the performance of engine-out operations in the multi-engine airplane. According to Part FCL minimum required time at least 3.5 hours of dual flight instruction in engine failure procedures and asymmetric flight techniques. In addition, you will conduct a review of the maneuvers and procedures performed in Stage I.
If you are Instrument Rating and desire instrument privileges in the multi-engine airplane, you will acquire pilot proficiency in the performance of required IFR operations and procedures in the multi-engine airplane. The instrument-rated student will meet the course requirements at the completion of this stage.
One of the main takeaways of the training is to understand the differences between a single-engine piston and a multi-engine piston aircraft.
Theoretical preparation takes 15 hours with an instructor, during which you will become familiar with the multi-engine piston airplane, systems, and aerodynamics.
