Multi-Engine Instrument Rating

Multi-Engine Instrument Rating - Stapleford Flight Centre

Course Information

Entry Requirements:

A Private or Commercial Pilot's Licence issued in accordance with ICAO Annex 1 with a night qualification, to include;

  • 70 hours as pilot-in-command
  • 50 hours PIC cross-country flight time
  • Hold a valid EASA Medical Certificate appropriate to the licence held
  • Passed a course of theoretical instruction as set out in the EASA-FCL
  • Demonstrated use of English language as set out in the EASA-FCL

Course Description:

Initial training introduces the student to flight in a Piper Seneca and proceeds with general handling until a good proficiency is obtained. This is followed by asymmetric flight during which the student will experience the effects of a single engine failure and learn to safely control the aeroplane under this condition. The student then prepares and rehearses for the Multi Engine Skill Test.

The training comprises:

Initial conversion on DA42 is aided with our DA42 BITD (Basic Instrument Training Device) which familiarises students with glass cockpit GARMIN G1000 displays.

The Instrument Rating training is commenced in the ALSIM FNPT2 flight simulator. Initially the student will learn to control the simulator smoothly and accurately by sole reference to the instruments and to accurately track and hold using VOR and NDB radio navigation aids. A high standard of performance is required before moving on to the next exercises.

The student then learns to fly precision and non-precision instrument approaches, and go-around procedures. The go-around procedures will include the practice of the drills associated with engine failure. Finally the student learns how to carry out a standard instrument departure, join the airways system, fly the airways, and make a standard instrument arrival.

The final part of the training takes place in the DA42 and the ALSIM FNPT2 flight simulator. It begins with general handling of the DA42 both in visual flight and by sole reference to the instruments. Complete routes are then flown in the DA42 where the skills learnt in the first part of the course are transferred from simulator to aircraft. The ALSIM FNPT2 flight simulator is used whenever remedial work is required and to also to extend the experience of the pilot e.g. by flight in severe weather conditions, or to more distant airfields.

The final part of the training is a formal pre-test assessment flight, followed by the skill test. This training comprises:

A further 10 hours training in the simulator is required if a CPL issued in accordance with the ICAO is not held.

Duration:

Training is full-time or part-time, the full-time course lasting between 8 and 12 weeks dependent on weather conditions.

24th March 2015 - Re: Southend Controlled Airspace

When requesting a clearance into the new Southend CAS, from April 2nd 2015, it would be advisable to quote the CTA number(s) that you want clearance into. Sadly the CTA numbers are not shown on the new 1:500,000 chart and so you will find this chart useful. We strongly suggest that you carry it with you when flying locally to help you ensure you get the clearance you want. If you have any questions or concerns please contact one of the instructors at Stapleford: 01708 688380.
