Video search on youtube to prep for flying multis…

Asked by: 1239 views General Aviation

Hey guys, I am about to start my multi training.  I wanted to see if there were some videos you think I could watch to prepare me.  I have read over some of the speeds (vx, vy, approach etc.)  I also wanted to watch some videos on...and I can't think of what it is called for the life of me... but where you have a blue for power and red for pitch of the propellor... some videos about how/why etc.  Just to be as prepared as possible for next week.  Anything would be appreciated.

    What model of multi-engine are you gonna be flying?

    I’m guessing you don’t already have your complex endorsement/any constant speed/variable pitch propeller experience? You should start there. The red levers are still for mixture and the black ones are still for throttle. The new blue ones are for propeller pitch control. Another difference is the black throttle doesn’t change the RPM like you’re used to, but rather it changes the manifold pressure, and the blue propeller pitch control changes the RPM.

    Here’s a full flight lesson of mine in a Beechcraft BE76 Duchess: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4lJk2o7_lY Be sure to read the description and understand that it’s not a beginner/intro flight and also incorporates instrument procedures for my commercial add-on, which I don’t know if you’ll be doing or not.

    Thanks Jim-

    That is perfect, I am flying a BE-76 starting next week so that is a perfect video. I have about 15 hours in complex, but still been a while and I had forgotten. I am going for my ME instrument initial just building up some hours and experience and wanted to get a head start. That was a great video. Thanks again.
