Multi-Engine Instrument Rating

A multi-engine aeroplane class rating (MEA) and an instrument rating (IR) are essential qualifications for anyone wanting to progress in their aviation career to faster, more complex aircraft and flying operations.

Shine Aviation prides itself on delivering high quality industry relevant training. Because our instructors are conducting both flight training and multi-engine IFR charter they are better equipped to provide practical real world training – IFR training by IFR charter pilots.

Training is conducted in our:

  • Beechcraft Baron 58
  • AT-21 Synthetic Trainer

Use of the Baron 58 aligns with our intention to provide high quality industry relevant training. The Baron 58 is used commonly in Australia in commercial operations.

Shine Aviation can also tailor courses for those wanting to conduct their training in:

  • Partenavia P68B
  • Piper PA-31 Navajo
  • Piper PA-31 Chieftain

Students will be building on the skills obtained in their PPL and CPL training and will obtain the following qualifications:

  • Multi-engine aeroplane class rating (MEA); and
  • Instrument rating (IR)

We provide all the practical theory and training required to ensure you achieve these milestones. Passing the IREX exam is required in order to obtain an instrument rating. This must be completed before commencement. IREX exam tutoring is available from our experienced instructors.

The average student with a CPL can obtain both their MEA and IR in as little as 20-25 dual flying hours and 20 simulator hours. This is of course dependent on students availability and commitment.
