Default Multi engine time split in AZ

Hello Everyone,

Looking to split time in multi engine aircraft preferably in Phoenix area, but willing to consider Las Vegas, LAX, San diego area. Need to lower my cost of MEI. I only have about 1.5 PIC time in muti engine aircraft. ASAP.

Thank you

How would sharing time make it cheaper for you to become an MEI? The MEI should only take you about 15 hours of flight training with an instructor.

I need 15 pic, if I spend 13.5 hours plane plus instructor is about 4800. If I split time , let's say 10 or 12 , I only have to pay/share for airplane ,which makes my mei training less expensive because I would not have to flight 13.5 hours dual

So you would be "training" yourself in the multi engine maneuvers with a non CFI rated pilot while you are under simulated instrument conditions? It doesn't sound to me like you are setting yourself up for success with that plan.

Well, I'm not training myself. I just want to increase my pic time in a multi engine aircraft, so it's does not cost me too much .I will be paying for my training to get my mei with an instructor, but if I can save a few hundred by sharing/ building multi time, I don't see the problem with that. In addition, since you are very curious about my training quality, I am practicing simulated engine failures and procedures required for the mei a full motion sim with an instructor .to save me some money. Most school that I have seem do the mei training I would have to bring 13 pic time ,,,

Hope this clears the concerns!

If you feel you can get it done with just those few hours of actual flight training in the aircraft, by all means go for it. Sim time is good and all, but I would still recommend that you start your actual flight training prior to time building. This gives you the chance to figure out where you may be deficient in the actual airplane. Otherwise you might end up spending more money in the long run.
