Commercial Pilot – Multi-Engine
The Commercial Multi-Engine Land (CMEL) course is conducted in a multi-engine Piper Seminole training aircraft, which is defined as “complex” because it has a constant speed propeller and retractable landing gear. The course is essential for aspiring airline pilots and covers topics such as Slow Flight, Stalls, and VMC Demos, focusing on proper procedures for complex emergency situations.
Commercial Pilot – Single-Engine
Though not required, the Commercial Single-Engine Land (CSEL) Initial course is a logical step for some pilots based upon their career track. The course is conducted in a single-engine Piper Arrow complex training aircraft and covers Chandelles, Eights-on-Pylons, and Lazy Eights, perfecting the use of a rudder. however
Students that have completed the CMEL course, may enroll in the Single-Engine Add-On Rating course which covers the same topics as the CSEL Initial but is conducted in the Cessna 172, as complex aircraft training requirements have already been met.
