Accelerated Multi Engine Training at Midwest Corporate Air, Inc.

accelerated multi engine training

Thinking about earning your Multi Engine Rating, your Multi Engine Instrument Rating, your Multi Engine Instructor Rating, or your Airline Transport Pilot License (ATP)?


Come to the Bellefontaine Regional Airport, one of the newest airports in the United States and have a great time while you earn your Multi Engine Rating in our Garmin G1000 glass cockpit equipped Diamond DA42 Twin Star! You will work hard, but you will have a lot of fun in the process and.........

....upon completion you can rent our Diamond Twin Star!

As a former USAF/ANG Officer and F4 Phantom Aviator, a current Hawker 800XP and Sabreliner 65 Corporate Pilot and an experienced FAA Gold Seal Multi Engine Flight Instructor, I offer the real-world experience that you need to earn your Multi Engine Rating, Multi Engine Instructor Rating (MEI), or Airline Transport Pilot License (ATP) in an accelerated format. To date Midwest Corporate Air has trained and prepared well over 40 individuals for their Multi Engine Private, Multi Engine Commercial or Multi Engine Flight Instructor Ratings......and today thanks to our past Flight Instructors David Maynard and Dustin Buchenroth who have also helped me, we hold a very high first time pass rate!

Yes a multi engine rating can be done in 2 to 3 days at other quality flight schools, however at Midwest Corporate Air, please plan for 3 to 5 days! Why?.....for several reasons. First of all, you will have the opportunity to fly, what the FAA considers to be, a (TAA) Technologically Advanced Aircraft....an aircraft that will introduce you to the future of general aviation. Secondly, with power levers, a FADEC control system and a glass cockpit, it will give you a solid foundation for a professional carreer in the general aviation or airline industry.

Furthermore, not only does it take more time to learn the G1000 glass cockpit avionics system, but we also have to learn many knew terms and definitions that we will use during our day to day operations when learning to fly the Diamond Twin Star. This will include such terms as Magnetometer, Air Data Computer (ADC), Attitude Heading and Reference System (AHRS), PFD, MFD, RMI, EPU, FADEC, Known Ice, TKS, Diesel Engines, water cooling, fuel cooling and many more terms, definitions and features that we will work with.

And when you pass your checkride, you can rent our Diamond Twin Star for personal use, business travel or currency. This is one of the greatest advantages of getting your multi engine rating with us. However, if you already have your multi engine rating, I will work diligently to help you meet the objectives needed to check you out in the shortest amount of time practical in our Diamond Twin Star.

Thank you for considering training and renting with Midwest Corporate Air, Inc,
