Our Multi Engine Command Instrument Rating (MEA) course is structured to start in the synthetic trainer, which incorporates nav aid training to develop an understanding of the use of navigational aids and their associated instrument approaches, before moving on to a series of navigational exercises in the trainer.

By the time you start the instrument training in the aircraft, your instructor has confirmed your ability to progress to this stage of the course, and the synthetic trainer has given you the practical knowledge to understand the theory components better.

The next stage is to complete your initial or type endorsement on the Baron prior to moving on to our Baron IFR training sequences, again incorporating IFR airwork, navaid work and navigational sequences.

Before your flight test, you will be evaluated on your IFR theory knowledge, including a thorough revision of your Knowledge Deficiency Report (KDR).

The duration of the IR MEA course is 5 weeks with the pre-requisites of 50 hours as pilot in command on cross country flights, and 5 hours of night experience, including 1 hour in command.
