Multi-Engine Add-on Rating Course
Price: $29.95

The Gleim Multi-Engine Add-On Rating Course is an interactive, self-study training program. This course is designed for two purposes. The first is to assist pilots who are preparing to add a multi-engine rating to their private or commercial pilot certificates by preparing them to pass their practical exam. Secondly, it serves as an effective review of multi-engine concepts and procedures for pilots who already hold a multi-engine rating and/or are seeking to become multi-engine instructors (MEIs).
  • Nine study units explain each PTS task as well as general information you need to know
  • Intuitively appealing knowledge transfer outlines for each study unit
  • Practical flying focus
  • Comprehensive Oral Exam Guide to prepare you for the practical test
  • 12 months of access

Gleim's materials were very well written. Gleim was sure to cover all scenarios, even the rare situations where procedures differ or are opposite, from what's normally done in most aircraft. It was very impressive.

I have used the Gleim flight training products for private, instrument, commercial, and multi-engine. They have been very thorough in preparing me for my testing. My wife will use their instrument course as she adds on this rating.

Thanks for a very good course on multi-engine airplanes. I am a multi-engine pilot and am using this course as a refresher in preparation for my MEI rating on my CFI license.

Course Elements

Each study unit contains:
  • 10 thought-provoking true/false study questions
  • 10-15 pages of knowledge transfer study outlines
  • A 10-question multiple-choice quiz
  • A study unit evaluation
  • 30-60 minutes of material per study unit
How to complete a study unit
  1. Choose a study unit from the Study Unit Selection screen. With the exception of completing Study Unit One before purchasing the course, the study units in the course do not have to be completed in any particular order. Once you begin a study unit, however, you cannot begin another study unit until you complete the one in progress.
  2. To complete a study unit you must:
    1. Answer 10 thought-provoking true/false study questions. An ongoing cumulative score based on your first answer selection for each question will be shown. After you answer each question, an answer explanation that indicates why you answered it correctly or incorrectly will be displayed. You will not be allowed to continue on to the outline section until all of the true/false study questions have been answered.
    2. Study the knowledge transfer outline for the study unit. The outlines are broken down into sections called "modules" to make studying them easier. You can use the print function on your browser to print the entire outline: from the File Menu, click File, and then click Print. Use this printout for quick reference. When you have finished studying the outlines, you will be ready to take the multiple-choice final test.
    3. Pass the multiple-choice final test with a score of 70% or better. You will be presented with 10 multiple-choice questions based on the material you covered in the true/false and outline sections of the study unit. You may move back and forth between questions and change your answers until you grade the test. When you have answered each of the 10 multiple-choice questions to your satisfaction, click the Grade button at the bottom of the screen below the last question.
    4. Note: It may take a few minutes for your grade to be delivered. Do not click the Grade button more than once. Also, do not hit the BACK button on your browser to try to return to the test after it has been graded. Please email us through our Online Support Email Form if you have problems.
