Aeronautical Experience, Knowledge, and Materials

For Airplane, Single-Engine, and Land:

*The cost of the MEI varies greatly between pilots and therefore will not be shown. It is common though for pilots to spend an extensive amount of ground and flight training to meet the standards of the MEI certificate. Meet with one of our qualified instructors to discuss training standards and costs.
