  • EASA MEP/IR/PBN: Ready, Steady, Go!

    One more important step for getting a job is complete: I added Multi-Engine and Instrument Rating to my EASA license. EASA Instrument Rating does not automatically applies to all class and type ratings in the license (like FAA), so I had to pass two different checkrides. Basically CPL with these ratings allows to apply for […]

  • EASA Multi-Engine Training

    All turbojet or turboprop aircrafts usually require a type rating, and almost all airliners require two pilots. I am not going to describe obtaining a type rating or multi-crew training in this post – I will do it later when I will be at that stage, but I mentioned it because of the EASA rules. […]

  • Multi-engine Checkride…

    … or the story about letters collection. I’ve already written about my oral part of the multi-engine checkride. The weather have not become acceptable for it that day, so I got a Letter of Discontinuance. It means that the checkride was interrupted for some reason (the weather in my case). The weather still did not […]

  • Multiengine Checkride

    Some days ago I passed the FAA Commercial checkride (ASEL, Airplane Single Engine Land). During my flight time building I made some hours in a multiengine one since I wanted a AMEL (Airplane Multi Engine Land) rating too. Today the weather was great for a checkride. My exam started from an oral part, and it […]

  • Commercial Maneuvers

    Currently I am flying complex airplane hours, and I decided to do that in a multiengine airplane. The basic principles in flying the maneuvers in a multiengine airplane are the same as in a single-engine one, but there are some more procedures, and the speed range is wider. The main difference for me is even […]

  • Multi-engine

    I am starting my multi-engine flights. FAA CPL requires 10 hours in a complex airplane (with retractable gear, variable pitch prop, flaps). Now it changed, but it was a requirement in 2018. I am going to obtain ME rating anyway, so I decided to fly my complex hours in a multi-engine airplane. Usually our school […]
