Multi-Engine Training Costs
While there is no minimum number of hours required for a multi-engine add-on, you can expect to spend approximately 15 hours training for your multi-engine rating if you are already instrument current and proficient.
You can earn your multi-engine rating in as little as three to five days for as little as $5,026 (Our course includes up to 15 hrs of multi-engine flight time (which consists of up to 13.5 hrs of flight time with an instructor and 1.5 hrs of aircraft time for the practical test), a multimedia multi-engine training program, and up to 8 hrs of ground briefings. The course is designed for active pilots who are instrument current and who have studied all aircraft systems, flight profiles, and multi-engine aerodynamics before arriving for flight training. Examiner fees and any flight time in excess of 15 hrs are not included.
Gulf Coast Aviation is flexible when it comes to scheduling your multi-engine rating. We can schedule you for a single three to five day block (depending on your skill level), two weekend blocks for those not able to train on the weekdays, or any schedule that works for you.
We have negotiated discounts for our students at hotels in the French Quarter and other nice areas of the city. Call us for rates and reservations.
Also ask us about our multi engine time building and multi-engine commercial courses.Flying is fun. Flying is even more fun when you can get paid to do what you love! A commercial certificate allows you to get paid for flights such as City Tours, Banner Towing, Photography Flights, and more that meet certain FAA regulations.

We train using the state-of-the-art, scenario-based training program that is exclusively available only to Cessna Pilot Centers. Produced by John and Martha King and their team, this multimedia, internet training program allows students to progress at their own pace and delivers amazing retention of information. The program makes excellent use of the building blocks of learning approach. First simple skills are taught. Then with each proceeding lesson those skills are reviewed and then combined to form more advanced skills. An efficient learning system is formed which will get you through your training with confidence and minimal expense.
While most schools offer a dedicated ground school class which covers course information separate from flight lessons, this program integrates each ground school lesson with its corresponding flight lesson. In addition, the program offers a video preview of each lesson so that the student already knows exactly what to expect before they start spending money in the airplane. This ensures the best allocation of time and money to move the student toward realizing the dream of flying. Cessna/King training programs are available for Private, Instrument, Commercial, and Multi-Engine Ratings. We welcome you to stop by to receive more information and a preview of the program.
We will provide you with the best flight training experience available. If at any time you do not feel that we are offering you the best training that you can receive, we will happily refund you all funds on account not yet used.
We will readily provide you with references from current and past students who have completed their rating in many less hours than the national average. Be sure you ask how many hours it takes students to complete ratings when shopping for flight training, and be sure that the school is able to provide you solid student references.
