Our week-long Multi-Engine Instructor course is designed to take a newly minted multi-engine commercial pilot and give them the skills and experience they need to teach others how to fly multi-engine aircraft. Included in this course is 14 hours of multi-engine flight training in the right seat of our Piper Twin Comanche, unlimited ground instruction, and up to 2 hours of aircraft rental along with fuel and the examiner fee for an MEI Practical Test. The cost for this course is $5,600-subject to change based on the student’s individual needs and experience.
The cost of the entire MEI course is $5,600. In the event that additional training is needed or desired, more flight training can be purchased for $350/hour including fuel and flight instruction.
*Our flat rates are based on average student performance and may be reduced if a student progresses quickly or arrives with prior multi-engine PIC experience.
Bayou Aviation manages a diverse fleet of single and multi-engine aircraft. Our on-location maintenance contractors are available 24/7 to ensure our airplanes are in peak condition for flight training.
Our Piper Twin Comanche multi-engine trainer provides a safe and effective training platform for Multi-Engine and MEI students while boasting an impressively low fuel burn for those building flight time. Its Lycoming IO-320 engines feature full-feathering counter-rotating propellers, which make it one of the safest multi-engine airplanes to train in. Moreover, its systems are easy to use and understand which makes preparing for a practical test much easier.
Our 2015 Lockwood Air Cam is a high-performance multi-engine seaplane capable of operating from runways and bodies of water. Because of the unique advantage of having two engines, it is extremely safe and capable. Due to Federal Aviation Regulations on Experimental Aircraft, it cannot be used for flight instruction at this time.
