Multi-Engine Rating

multi-engine add-on program multi-engine add-on program


Join us at Sawyer Flight Academy for our 10-day accelerated multi-engine add-on program. This add-on to your existing private or commercial single engine rating will allow you to fly higher, faster, and further with the comfort of having a second engine. We offer our multi-engine add-on in our beautiful DA-42 Twin Star. Our course will consist of exclusive one-on-one training with one of our experienced Multi-Engine Instructors.

Utilize our one-of-a-kind multi-engine AATD simulator at a reduced rate while completing your multi-engine add-on with us at Sawyer Flight Academy.

Once you have completed your add-on, you are able to rent our DA-42 to explore further than you have previously with a single engine airplane. The DA-42 allows you to take a friend or two places with confidence and peace of mind.

There are multiple reasons a multi-engine rating might be needed. It might be necessary for a personal aircraft purchase, it might be necessary for a future employer, or maybe you just want to be able to rent an aircraft to fly further, faster, higher, with the comfort of an extra engine. Whatever your reason, Sawyer Flight Academy is ready to provide you the best instruction in a state of the art DA-42.

Our multi-engine course costs $5,499. This includes 10 hours of dual instruction, 1.5 hours of aircraft time for your checkride, and ground instruction to prepare you for the oral exam portion of your add-on rating.

The designated pilot examiners are normally scheduled about 4 weeks in advance of any checkride. Your multi-engine checkride is no different. We prefer to have you scheduled about a month in advance to get a checkride scheduled with the designated pilot examiners. If you need a date sooner please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
