Commercial SEL add-on

Asked by: 799 views , ,
Commercial Pilot

I have the Commercial MEL rating and would like to add-on the SEL.  The PTS seems a bit confusing on which items I need to complete for the add-on.  I know I'll need to do steep spirals, chandells, lazy 8s, and pylon 8s, but is there anything else?  Various landings and take-offs, stalls, steep turns, approaches, etc. were completed for the C-MEL so I suspect I won't have to repeat those for the add-on.

    See page 21 of the current version of the Commercial PTS. It contains the task table for the addition of an ASEL rating to an existing Commercial certificate.
