Instructor:
Michael Lessard, CFII/MEI

Course Description:

This is a very exciting, fast-paced, and highly motivating course that delivers comprehensive training to prepare you to be a safe, knowledgeable, and efficient multiengine pilot.  Regardless of your experience as a pilot, your transition to multiengine airplane flying will introduce many new concepts in the operation of the aircraft and its systems, aircraft performance and limitations, aerodynamics, emergency procedures, and the overall thought process of flying. 

In this course you will learn the multiengine knowledge areas, flight operations and maneuvers, and risk management.  We will cover all elements of the Airman Certification Standards for the multiengine airplane practical test.  As a multiengine pilot you will likely be flying pressurized aircraft and/or aircraft that have service ceilings over 25,000 feet.  That in mind, this course adds value by including ground training for the high-altitude endorsement as well.

Michael is an exciting and engaging instructor who shares decades of practical experience and insight.  Throughout the course, Michael uses scenario-based examples to explain real world flying.  He continuously teaches about the aeronautical decision making process and explains practical strategies to avoid getting into hazardous situations.

Student Testimonials

I took the previous Private Pilot Ground School class. I am very happy to say that I passed the FAA Unmanned Aircraft – General (UAG) test in Augusta yesterday to qualify for a Remote Pilot Certificate (license). Anyone taking this class for the purpose of flying UAVs (I prefer RPAs – Remote Piloted Aircraft!) commercially will find it very helpful in giving you the vast knowledge you need to pass the UAG test. Study – you will need it!

Jacob Sol

This is a great class. It is fast paced, with lots of new information provided every week. Michael Lessard does a great job presenting the information, along with personal examples to give the information context in real life situations.
