BEECHCRAFT DUCHESS 76
The Beech Duchess was designed as an economical twin-engine trainer to compete with the Piper Seminole and Cessna 310 twins. The model 76 incorporates engines that turn in different directions "counter-rotating" as we say in the trade, which eliminates the critical engine from single engine operation, making it a popular and safe twin and just so you don't forget the second engine the registration of our lovely Beech should help - G-TWNN.
Take Flight is proud to offer the aircraft for MEP ratings and type specific training. Don't get confused with your local MEP in the European parliament although Twin training can be just as slippery and demanding which is why we entrusted it the experts in the field and our professional partners On-Track Aviation at Wellesbourne and Command Pilot Training in Coventry.
The Multi-Engine Piston rating extends the privileges of the Private Pilots Licence (PPL) or Commercial Pilots Licence (CPL) to pilot aircraft with more than one engine. The course requires at least 70 hours as Pilot in Command (PIC) as a pre-entry requirement and requires 7 hours of theoretical knowledge training and 6 hours of flight training. The training includes at least 3.5 hours of instruction in engine failure procedures and asymmetric flight techniques.
MEP Rating £2,950 (including 6 hours aircraft hire, instruction, ground school and VAT).
