Even those who do not wish to pursue a professional flying career often want to be able to fly a higher performance aircraft than that used for PPL training. With a MEP Rating you can fly one of Ravenair’s larger and more powerful aircraft like the Piper Seneca. Learning how to control the aircraft under asymmetric (single engine) power forms a major part of the MEP Rating.
Requirements for obtaining a MEP:
Minimum of 6 hours flight training:
- 2 hours 30 minutes dual instruction under normal conditions of multi-engine operations
- 3 hours 30 minutes dual instruction in engine failure procedures and asymmetric flight techniques
7 hours mandatory groundschool
Passing the written exam (75% or higher)
Pass the Skill Test with a Flight Examiner
