Multi engine add on

Iím currently working on my single engine commercial rating, Iím still deciding if I will go multi-add on rating.

My question is, I plan to go to the airlines, but do I need a multi-engine rating before I can get my type rating?

Thank you.

Two separate questions involved here: employment processing and certification.

As a wild guess, I would suggest that no one will look at an application (except maybe ex-military) if you don't have some multi time. This is a common method of filtering, and possibly an insurance issue?

For an FAA Type Rating, if you don't already have MEL, this is added with the multi-engine type rating. You would however still need to meet the aeronautical experience requirement for the level of certificate (50 hours in class for ATP).

Hi sir thank you for your answer,

but itís still not clear to me, so letís say Iím a single engine rated pilot and I go get my type rating (but I donít have a multi-engine rating). Letís say I got my type rating, so I will also have a multi-engine rating after?

thank you again!

To clarify, this is under FAA rules.

For example, a B737 type rating also adds the MEL class rating, if not held already. The Type is seen as a sub-division of the Class. This is not how it is interpreted under EASA.

So, for example I got my B737 type rating, can I also fly other multi-engine planes besides B737? Letís say PA44 plane?

thank you again!

A type rating is equipment specific.

It all depends on which licence you have. FAA - yes. EASA - no. Others - maybe.
