You have your Private and Instrument ratings but what’s next?

If you have a desire to fly multi-engine aircraft that’s great, but it requires a specialized rating.

A second engine adds weight, systems, and other duties a pilot must master.

The good news, obtaining a multi-engine rating is normally one of the quicker steps you’ll encounter on your personal pilot journey.
