How much does it cost to obtain an MEP rating
of the MEP course
The Multi-Engine Piston – MEP is a step forward to your aviation dream.
Attaining the EASA Multi-Engine Piston – MEP (A) rating extends privileges of EASA Private Pilot License – PPL (A) and Commercial Pilot License – CPL (A), which allows you to fly aircraft with more than one engine.
Once MEP(A) training is completed, the qualification will be added to your EASA Private Pilot License – PPL(A) or EASA Commercial Pilot License – CPL(A).
The Multi Engine Piston rating is valid for 12 months and is renewed with a flight test with a Flight Examiner.
You will learn the procedures and maneuvers that apply in a multi-engine airplane during normal and engine-out operations under VFR and IFR.
The flight training for a holder of IR(A) takes 11 hours (6 hours VFR and 5 IFR) of dual flight instruction.
The training is divided into 3 stages.
You will need to prove your ability to:
operate the airplane within its limitations,
complete course-specific maneuvers as smoothly and as accurately as possible,
exercise good judgment and airmanship,
apply aeronautical knowledge,
maintain control of the airplane at all times.
The practical exam is performed under the supervision of a CAA-authorized examiner.

One of the main takeaways of the training is to understand the differences between a single-engine piston and a multi-engine piston aircraft.
Theoretical preparation takes 15 hours with an instructor, during which you will become familiar with the multi-engine piston airplane, systems, and aerodynamics.
Hold a valid Class 2 medical certificate issued in accordance with Part-MED.
Demonstrate sufficient knowledge of Mathematics and Physics
You need to be proficient in the English language ICAO English Language Proficiency minimum level 4 and pass the IFR English (FCL 055d).
The course price starts from 7000 EUR
You will become familiar with the multi-engine airplane used in the training course and with the human factors concepts and issues relating to multi-engine operations. Additionally, through the introduction and review of multi-engine maneuvers and procedures, you will learn to fly the multi-engine airplane under day VFR conditions during normal two-engine operations. The minimum requirement according to Part FCL (flight crew licensing) is 2.5 hours during normal operation of an aircraft (with both engines).
