How Much For Multi-Engine Rating?

Hello All,

I was hoping I could find out about how much one must pump out of his wallet to get a Multi-Engine rating (This includes all you have to do to get that certification, including student, single-engine, land, instrument). About how much money would I be spending over the course + all the equipment I would need. I am hoping to one day fly Gulfstreams or Learjets and then one day get type rated on the DC9 and 737.

Thanks for any info.

Well, it depends on where you go and what speed you wish to complete the program at. Try this site and see what you think. They are a little pricey, so you could probably get away for several thousand less if you did it locally....

But, if you go military......its a little better.  bigthumbsup

To be on the safe side, I would plan $15,000 to do the Single Engine land and the Instrument rating - keeping in mind that you'll need to build some cross-country time on your own prior to getting the instrument rating. The multi will likely be around $3-5,000 more.

Then it's time-building, time-building, time-building until you have enough hrs for the commercial ticket. And more time-building until you're employable anywhere, apart from instructing.

Incidentally, this assumes you go the "non-school route" as opposed to part 141 "schools" such as Embry Riddle, North Dakota, etc.

Long and short, it ain't cheap.. But neither is any specialized college degree either!

Well, I knew it wasn't cheap, but didn't know how much I should save up.

I may wait until I get a new car, and get some other stuff taken care of, and then go for Multi.

Well, if you train in a part 61 environment, you'll need 250 hours to get your commercial license...141 can reduce this to 190 hours. It's going to cost a whole bunch of money. I spent $30,887.51 on my private, instrument, commercial, and multi-engine ratings, and another $9013.91 on my CFI and CFII...MEI is coming in December - oh yea, add on college tuition, room and board, and other expenses too!

I know you're looking for the whole she-bang, but you can get your multi-engine certificate with just 40 hours TT or 35 hours TT if you do it Part 141 - it will be a private multi-engine. But that is still a multiengine certificate. You don't have to get a single engine certificate at all if all you're looking to do is fly Lears and 737s, DC-9s. But it is cheaper to build time in a single engine and if you are a CFI, you are more marketable if you can teach in a single engine.

I'm doing a program at Coastal Pacific Aviation in Abbotsford, BC that gets me my commercial, and multi-IFR. They have a 4 year program, which gets you these ratings plus a busniness administration degree. I like the idea of having a degree as well, as it makes you look better when applying for jobs, and it also gives you a backup plan if something happens to your medical or something. Right now I'm paying $250 CAN/hr for the twin, so it definitely isn't cheap.
I guess you're probably looking for something in the states, but here's the website if anyone is interested.
