Multi Engine Rating

The multi engine rating at GATI will bring you the skills to fly a multi engine aircraft and fulfill your requirements for a Type Rating on the Airbus 320 or similar aircraft. This training is the culmination of your skills as an ab-initio pilot and builds up on that to bridge the gap between your CPL and your Type Rating. The training is conducted in conformity of the DGCA syllabus and the required flying time will vary depending on your objective. It is our recommendation that you do 15 hours multi engine flying on the aircraft (plus 10 hours ME simulator) as that is a minimum qualification requirement to undergo an A320 family of aircraft Type Rating.

During this training you will learn One engine performance requirements, handling asymmetric thrust and all other performance requirements that an airplane engaged in commercial transportation needs to conform to.
