Multi Engine Rating
Why Get a Multi Engine Rating?
A Multi Engine Rating allows you to fly a new class of aircraft. Often heavier, and more complex, flying with more than one engine for some is simply a challenge to be conquered, for others the pathway to more reliable transportation or an aviation career. Regarless or your motivation, you will find a Multi Engine Rating a fun and rewarding way to expand your flying experience.
What is Involved?
The details of what is required to earn your Multi Enging Rating are in the sidebar at right. Essentially you have to receive the appropriate training on how to operate an aircraft and take a flight with an examiner. There is not a specific number of hours specified. We find it takes about 10 flight hours to master the required tasks.
Why Learn at HOVA?
At HOVA you can get your mult engine rating for only $4,590. We can do this because our modern, docile, twin engine Tecnam P2006T has much lower operating costs than the old aircraft most flight schools use for multi engine training.
Our Our Multi Engine Course can be completed in a three day weekend, making it efficient as well as economical.
You also have a choice between aircraft with analog and glass (G1000) instrumentation.
