The addition of a Multiengine Land Rating is a goal of both private and commercial pilots and the fourth step in a career pilot program. To add a FAA Multiengine Rating to a pilot certificate the pilot must be knowledgeable, proficient and experienced in 7 pilot operations which are required by Federal Air Regulations. Knowledge is gained through ground training and demonstrated in the oral examination at the completion of training; proficiency is acquired in a Piper Seneca II and through the use of a flight training syllabus. There are no specific experience requirements for the addition of a Multiengine Land Rating.​


The training course is divided into two stages of training with the following objectives: Stage I – VFR multiengine procedures and maneuvers, Stage II – IFR multiengine procedures and maneuvers, and Pilot Certification by an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner.
