MEL(A)

The Multi Engine Land - MEL(A) rating extends the privileges of a Private Pilot License - PPL(A) or Commercial Pilot License - CPL(A) and allows you to pilot aircraft with more than one engine. One of the main takeaways of the training is to understand the differences between a single-engine piston and a multi-engine piston aircraft. Once you complete your Multi Engine Land training, you will get your MEL(A) qualification added on your FAA Private Pilot License - PPL(A) or FAA Commercial Pilot License - CPL(A).
