Pilots, are you looking for a way to advance your aviation career without spending a ton of time or breaking the bank? Gain a competitive edge in the aviation industry and invest in your future when you earn your commercial multi-engine rating in under a week at CROSSAIROCEAN Flight School in Zephyrhills. CROSSAIROCEAN offers its commercial multi-engine rating add-on at a competitive price of $350 an hour over the course of a five-day accelerated program.

Earning the commercial multi-engine rating can be the career game-changer you’ve been looking for. This rating qualifies the holder to fly as a pilot-in-command of any aircraft with more than one engine and is the ideal rating to pursue if you’re looking to advance in the airline and commercial side of the aviation industry. With the new year fast approaching, there’s no better time to kick-start your career, gain new skills and take steps toward achieving your dream of being a commercial pilot.

Students must have a logbook or training record endorsement from an authorized instructor to be eligible to enroll in CROSSAIROCEAN’s commercial multi-engine rating program. There are no minimum training time requirements necessary to enter the program but note that this course is for those who are already proficient in operating an airplane. Beginners who are eager to get started in the world of aviation should look into the other programs and ratings offered by CROSSAIROCEAN before working their way up to this one.

“Those who have had the commercial pilot license and have a good amount of experience flying should be able to acquire the commercial multi-engine add-on within about seven to 10 hours,” said Ben Obasi, manager and flight instructor at CROSSAIROCEAN. Obasi leads the commercial multi-engine rating program.

Each day of Obasi’s five-day program has its own concentration and on all five days, students go up in CROSSAIROCEAN’s Piper Seneca 1 PA 34-200 plane and learn to fly. Commercial multi-engine rating students can also use a simulator modeled after a multi-engine airplane during the course. Students learn how to maneuver the airplane, use its systems and handle hypothetical situations that may arise when they’re flying a multi-engine plane on their own in the future. Students must pass the practical commercial multi-engine rating test administered on day five of the program to receive the rating, unless additional training is needed. From there, a world of opportunities becomes available.

Earning the rating increases pilots’ flying experience, diversifies the types of flying they can perform, broadens their aviation knowledge and helps accustom them to the commercial aviation industry, said Obasi. The program is also a cost-effective option and can be completed fairly quickly.

Ready to spread your wings? Now is the time to achieve your goals.
