Additional explanation of multi-engine rating:

The Instrument/Commercial Syllabus was issued a letter of acceptance from the AFS-800 branch of the FAA for use in Part 141 schools. Although the wording and structure of the syllabus was found to have met the applicable requirements, additional explanation may be necessary in future revisions to clarify the multi-engine rating portion of the syllabus.

If students are enrolled in the Commercial Pilot Course for a single-engine airplane under Appendix D, complete the requirements with a total of 120 hours of training, and pass the practical test, they may then enroll in the Additional Aircraft Category and/or Class Rating Course under Appendix I to add the multi-engine rating to their certificate.

If students wish to complete a commercial course within the total of 120 hours and have both a single-engine and multi-engine rating apply to their commercial certificate, they must be concurrently enrolled in the Commercial Pilot Course under Appendix D for a single-engine airplane and a multi-engine airplane. In this case, students will meet the requirements for both the Commercial Pilot Certification Course—Airplane Single-Engine Land and for the Commercial Pilot Certification Course—Airplane Multi-Engine Land with 105 hours of single-engine flight time and 15 hours of multi-engine time for the total of 120 hours.

The Flight Time Allocation Tables list the required single-engine time in parenthesis for exercising this option. After Stage III of the Commercial Pilot Certification Course, students will have 105 hours total flight time. They will then complete the 15 hours of multi-engine time in Stage I of the Multi-Engine Course for a total of 120 hours.

After completing the 120 hours, students will take and pass the Commercial Pilot—Airplane Single-Engine Land Practical Test prior to taking the Commercial Pilot—Airplane Multi-Engine Practical Test. From an examiner/practical test standpoint, the student would be adding a multi-engine rating to an existing single-engine commercial certificate. From a 141 standpoint, the student would have completed a Single-Engine Commercial Pilot Course and a Multi-Engine Commercial Pilot Course under Appendix D.

The QR codes in the Jeppesen Private Pilot Maneuvers Manual, which provide links to the online animation videos, are currently broken. We are working on a resolution to this problem, and in the interim customers can navigate to these videos by visiting our online Private Maneuvers animation videos page at jeppesen.com/training-media.

Jeppesen is in the process of making significant updates to the GFD Instrument/Commercial Syllabus. In addition to many other improvements to enhance usability, these updates will include enhancements to make it easier for flight schools, instructors, and students to more effectively use a full flight simulator (FFS), flight training device (FTD), advanced aviation training device (AATD), and/or basic aviation training device (BATD) to help meet FAR Part 141 flight training time requirements.

Jeppesen will be publishing a revision to the GFD Instrument/Commercial Syllabus but in the interim is posting this Amendment as an immediate solution for TAA options within the Commercial Pilot Certification course. Amendment 1 is not applicable for flight schools who are not utilizing TAAs during commercial flight training.
