Pilot Training

You can usually take higher education courses if you’re 18 or older. They’re regularly taught in universities, colleges and professional institutions such as art schools or agricultural colleges - nearly all of which have their own websites. You can get a wide range of skills, for example, diplomas, bachelor degrees, foundation degrees and post-graduate degrees.

After having been enrolled in Flight School, students who are hoping to continue in their pilot training will have received a better understanding of airline philosophy and Standard Operating Procedures, both of which are crucial to a pilot’s understanding. Students must also receive further qualifications to graduate into the more advanced Aviation Science.

The USA remains the world’s most popular destination for international students. Universities in the US dominate the world rankings and the country also offers a wide variety of exciting study locations. State university systems are partially subsidized by state governments, and may have many campuses spread around the state, with hundreds of thousands of students.

Multi-Engine Rating Course

Legacy Aviation
Campus Full time 28 hours September 2018 USA Philadelphia

A multi-engine rating allows a pilot to operate as pilot-in-command of an aircraft with more than one engine. During training the student will be exposed to a new aircraft with two engines, and be trained by a qualified and proficient instructor pilot on normal, abnormal, and emergency procedures. Extensive time will be allocated towards engine-out procedures, or the loss of an engine during takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, approach, and missed approach phases of flight. In general, multi-engine flying keeps you busier because you are now monitoring and managing two separate engines. The instructor pilot will also train you to proficiency on stalls, steep turns, single engine taxi, short field and soft field takeoffs and landings, crosswind landings, and a variety of different real flying scenarios. [+]

A multi-engine rating allows a pilot to operate as pilot-in-command of an aircraft with more than one engine.

The multi-engine rating is for those pilots who want the security of having a second engine available in the event of an engine failure. The multi-engine rating is also essential for pilots moving up to charter, corporate, or airline aviation. Up to this point, you have maintained proficiency in a single engine aircraft. However, the multi-engine rating will allow you to fly airplanes with two, three, four, or more engines.

Reinforce safety by becoming an Instrument Pilot.

It is a known fact that flying at night is much more difficult than flying during the day. That being said, in both Canada and Europe, an instrument rating is required by law in order to fly at night. With an instrument rating, a professional private pilot is no longer limited to flying only by visual references. He can now enter the clouds for the first time, flying solely by the instruments within the cockpit. Having an instrument rating will give you peace of mind during low visibility and low ceiling situations.
