The aim of the Multi-Engine Piston (MEP-Land) Class Rating course is to train the pilot to fly safely and efficiently under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) in Multi Engine Piston Land aeroplanes.

The MEP (L) Class Rating course includes a minimum of 7 hours of theoretical knowledge instruction in the form of long briefings, integrated with the flight training and delivered by the flight instructor.

This test takes place in our facilities at Pafos Airport.

An optional extra hour of asymmetric circuit training by night may be added to the course if the applicant holds a night rating.
