The thing with the multi-engine is spend a night just reviewing these simple things before you start your first sim or flight session:
- Vr 75, Vy (and Vyse “blueline”) 88, positive rate and no runway remaining to land/gear up, above 500’ pitch that nose down to 110, at 1000’ AGL 24"MP/2500RPM.
- The in-flight engine emergency, think about maintaining control, initially you’ll have to pitch down to reach Vyse (blueline), your control box for power instruments, full fwd, then flaps up, gear up, slap your dead leg and close the inop engine.
- Also if you’re below 3,000’ don’t troubleshoot, I like to announce when I’m crossing 3,000’ because it reminds not only myself, but instructor if something happens we’re going to troubleshoot.
- Final thing, if you’re below 3,000’, announce feather (inop) prop, cutoff (inop) mixture.
I think you’ll find it to be a super easy transition! I spent numerous hours so far in the simulator just practicing the flows with another student and sat in on a few simulator sessions to the point where I spent 9 hours in the simulator the one weekend by myself going over flows and everything. It paid off my first flight, it was a breeze.
The only thing with landing is it’s not an Archer or Skyhawk, you come in more leveled and you don’t necessarily “flare,” you reduce power as you come closer to the ground…You’ll love it man, it is much more powerful than any single engine I’ve personally been in…it’s just a cool experience!
For tutorials on the systems, I was saving this to post in my update thread, but use these two resources (Pretty Fly For a CFI and PA-44 Training App - yes I know it’s $9.99, but I have seen it to help me a LOT).
