Earn Your Multi-Engine Seaplane (MES) Rating

MES Rating At the Hangar
Get Your Rating - This offering allows you to add a Multi-engine Seaplane (MES) rating to your private, commercial, or ATP certificate.  This includes 7 hours flight instruction plus the checkride. This is available on a limited basis depending on scheduling constraints and examiner availability to pilots who are proficient in Multiengine Land and Single Engine Sea airplanes.  $13,500


Ideally, applicants for the MES rating would already have MEL and SES ratings, and arrive current in both.  Training covers all maneuvers listed in the PTS.  The estimated time required for the rating varies depending on the background of the applicant, but would generally range between 5-10 hours.  The checkride would be provided by an FAA examiner at the Anchorage FSDO.  For information about FAA related Practical Test Standards (PTS), click here.

Biennial Flight Review -  If you already have a Multiengine Sea Rating, we can provide a BFR. If you are current in multiengine and seaplane procedures, this can generally be accomplished with one hour flight time for a price of $1650. (This is only available to pilots with the MES rating)

An Exclusive Service

Alternatively, we can provide seaplane instruction, training, and Grumman checkouts in your own airplane if preferred.  Call for a quote.  


While the opportunity to acquire the MES rating in the Goose is unique, The operating costs and quality of the aircraft make it impossible to offer this experience at a rate comparable to that in a lesser aircraft..  There are excellent package courses available on the market in less capable airplanes—but if you would like to reach this goal in the Goose, we are happy to offer this to you.
