PMEL & CSEL adding CMEL

Asked by: 1339 views FAA Regulations

Hi guys! Here's a funky question. It can be a bit confusing on the PTS. I hold a Private Multi-Engine Land (VFR Limitations)...don't ask XD

I also hold a Commercial Single Engine Land, with no limitations.

So I'm not quite sure what to expect on a checkride other than the single engine precision approach (remove VFR limitations) and landings/maneuvers (upgrade privileges) to commercial standards. I also wouldn't know if the oral would cover systems and performance/VMC factors all over again. What do yall think?

    In the Comm PTS there is an additional rating task table. You want the one in Section 2 (Airplane Multi Engine). You will need to do F,G And H in Area 1. All of areas 2, 5, 7, 8, and 10, and A,B,C and D in area 4. Area 1 (sections f,g, and h require that you know the performance and limitations, systems operation and engine inoperative priciples of flight. So the short answer to the second part of your question is yes.

    In addition, since you have a VFR only limitation on your private Multi, and needing to remove it, i would make sure I knew my instrument procedures well as you will most likely be asked (including pertinent regulations, like currecny requirements, which approaches can be logged from the recent FAA INFO, holding speeds, altetnate requirements, etc……) I would think that that is all fair game for the examiner to ask.
