The Multi Engine Piston – MEP(A) rating extends the privileges of a Private Pilot License – PPL(A) or Commercial Pilot License – CPL(A) and allows you to fly an aircraft with more than one engine under Visual Flight Rules – VFR

The Multi Engine Piston Rating allows you to progress your flying onto a more powerful, twin engine aircraft. This can be done simply for pleasure or if you wish to go into an airline career, the MEP is an essential part of your training.
