Complete your Multi-Engine Instrument Rating in 3-4 weeks on our Beechcraft B55 & B58 Barons at a similar cost to a less useful training twin. Have you ever seen a job ad on AFAP that asks for Diamond, Duchess, Seminole or Seneca time? We haven’t, but we’ve seen plenty that ask for Baron time. We encourage potential students to contact GA employers to find out what they recommend as an MEIR training aircraft for their prospective or current employees – the answer is unlikely to be one of those four. Diamonds in particular are great for training airline cadets, but due to their automated systems and single power levers (amongst other reasons) they are widely recognised amongst GA employers as a poor choice for training for real-world GA jobs. Our three Barons are well-equipped, well-presented, company-owned (and therefore we have complete control over their availability and aspects such as maintenance standards and upgrades) and competitively priced examples of these popular charter machines.
“You guys deliver a great product”, Ben Wyndham, CEO & Chief Pilot, Airspeed Aviation (Ben has employed three of our previous students into his multi-engine IFR charter operation).
“Couldn’t recommend this course any more. Professional instructors, efficient training and wonderful aircraft. One of the best aviation experiences of my life”, Tim Stott, FAST Aviation MEIR graduate, December 2021
Many of our MEIR course graduates are now flying for airlines & GA operators all over the world – take a look at our Past Student Achievements page.
We are fortunate in that the legitimacy of our training has been industry-recognised, and we are often contacted by GA employers from NSW, QLD and the NT when they have pilot vacancies to fill. Many of our graduates now work for the companies that contact us (some in Chief Pilot and other management, and therefore recruiting, roles). Like most opportunities in aviation, it will always come down to being in the right place at the right time with the right personality and the right attitude, and also the right aircraft types in your logbook.
Vocational pilot training should provide employable skills and experience, and we are proud to provide our graduates with both. We take pride in taking CPL holders from diverse backgrounds and turning them into employable GA industry assets. We are proud that a number of our graduates have progressed quickly through to senior GA & airline pilot jobs.
