The most basic of licenses, the private pilot license allows a pilot
to operate any aircraft in the single engine land category. At

visibility such as clouds or rain.
Multi Engine Rating
The multi engine rating allows pilots to operate as pilot-in-command
an aircraft with more than one engine. The multi-engine rating can
be added to a private pilot license either with or without
instrument privileges (if you hold them already) or to a commercial

- Skydiving Drops
- Operate corporate aircraft for individuals or companies
- Pipeline Patrol
- Ferry Flights

This endorsement allows the pilot to operate an aircraft with
engine power output greater than 200 horsepower.

If your instrument skills are not up to meeting the PTS and/or
you are out of the 12 month cycle for instrument currency, this
endorsement will allow you to file and fly IFR.
