Training - Multi Engine Instrument Rating

PFC simulator

The Multi Engine Instrument Rating offered by the Pacific Flying Club follows the guidelines set out in the Transport Canada Canadian Aviation Regulations. The course is based on both simulator and actual instrument flight time in a multi-engine aircraft. The student will receive 20 hours of dual instruction in a 2007 Level 5 Al Sim FTD, 2010 Full Motion Redbird FTD, or PFC Elite, plus 20 hours of multi-engine instrument instruction in a Piper Seneca I aircraft equipped with Garmin 430 GPS. The amount of actual instrument instruction will vary depending on the student's ability and level of experience. Members wishing to pursue a Multi-IFR Rating should contact Marcel Gimenez at the Club. Prerequisites include a Private Pilot Licence. Students must hold a Multi Engine Rating and 50 hours PIC cross country time prior to doing a M-IFR flight test. Fuel surcharges will apply where fuel exceeds the base rate.
