    Hello folks, new here, I’m in Tampa Bay Area, specifically looking for any Solid current lead on getting an Accelerated multi add on, anywhere in the country, where the setup has a Dpe on hand/available. To save time I can tell you that places I’ve called here in Florida specially locally, either there’s no plane no instructor no Dpe available or some combination there of.
    Thank you.

    What time frame are you looking at? There's a place up here in Michigan knock it out in 2 days I don't know how far out they're booked that's where I did mine - along with SES.

    You can’t knock out a commercial multi in 2 days. You need to log 25 hours of multi.

    He said "add-on", minimum requirement is 3 hours of checkride prep.


    This isn't to say that I recommend the minimum required, and I know nothing of the accelerated courses for this. But it is very common for people with no Multi experience to finish in 7-10 hours in a non-accelerated fashion.

    Correction - if you don’t have a commercial single.

    I called Traverse once and he was booked solid for months. Great deal if you are not in a rush.

    Also FL is tough getting on a DPE's schedule. I know that Paul Kramer's Learn to Fly Center at KPMP has a "staff" DPE. Nice people in the brief interaction I had there. Don't know what they have in the way of a multi, I imagine they have something.

    Fly By Knight in Hammond, LA. They got me scheduled within a few weeks (Traverse was 6 months out), and got me done in a few days and way under budget (around 1.5k including the DPE).

    I checked with traverse he’s booked out several months, so is the lady at Knight in la.
    Yes this is an add on, I have the single comm.
    time frame is anytime really, need to get it done, at 700+ tt and talking to difrent companies there is a couple three solid possibilities I’ve been offered for sic but multi is the key.
    Thank you guys for anymore leads.

    Me too, actually I did my MEI with him. I think half of POA has done multi training with Tom Brady.

    I tried to go through him, but the tires on his planes were always underinflated.

    Maybe so, but I think the weight and balance issues that six trophies would cause might be the bigger issue. :). Go Pats!

    I’m headed to Great Lakes air ventures,Mi. Thanks to Edfred I got a solid lead and Mr Foerschler contacted me from greatlskesairventures.com and set it all up. Felt very comfortable talking to him. It’s a good sign when folks don’t go straight to “money” and ask about you and what your current goal and need is. I’ll definitely update with my experience there so it can benefit someone else . Thank you guys for the great info and also Trocket for another solid lead in N.C.
