Flight Training

Multi Engine Instrument Rating (ME/IR)

ACS Flight Training are Scotland's flight training specialist for Instrument Rating training.
We operate currently two Piper Seneca aircraft and a matched FNPTII simulator. This provides continuity for
training and an easy transition from the procedural trainer to the aircraft.
ACS have recently acquired a new Alsim AL42 FNPTII simulator and DA42 Twinstar aircraft. These will arriving soon and will replace the Seneca aircraft for the ME/IR course.

The aim of the course is to train the student to safely and effectively command a multi-engine aeroplane under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) with an approach to land down to a minimum decision height of 200ft (60m). The course for a multi-engine IR(A) entails 55 hours of instruction in instrument flying which is divided into 40 hours in the Flight and Navigation Procedure Trainer (FNPT II) and 15 hours in our Seneca II* aircraft. (*DA42 Twinstar from Autumn 2017)

Students holding a CPL(A) issued in accordance with ICAO may have the training course reduced by 5 hours, which must be taken off the time on the FNPT II. Students holding an IR(H) may have the training course reduced to 10 hours as a minimum.
