Do you truly feel that that is more relevant than perhaps inquiring about my results from mathematics and statistics courses in college? After all, the understanding of AirTran safety statistics is really what is being discussed here.

For what it's worth, my logbook has been available on the web since my first flight.

look there is no need to get an attitude. I asked a simple question. Since this is your web site some of us who are not to familar with it, might not know where to go to see your logbook. Please come off your high horse. As for your Airtran comment this forum is not about airtran. I was only inquiring about you flight experience because I am private multiengine pilot working on my instrument rating.

My apologies if I incorrectly understood your intentions. That's great that you're a private pilot with your amel rating.

Where are you training & what aircraft do you fly?

How close are you do your instrument airplane rating?

apology accepted,

I am training at Peachtree flight center at falcon field (KFFC) Peachtree City Ga. I Fly C172's, Diamond Star, Piper Seneca I. I am doing most of my Instrument training in the Seneca. I'm getting ready for my first stage check for instrument. Hopefully in about 1 to 1 1/2 years I can move to the right seat on AirTran.

Seneca - very nice. The largest piper I have flown is the Arrow. Flew from Houston to Jacksonville and back. It was a business trip and also my long IFR cross country.

So you've got your AMEL then your IFR-A then you're starting on your commercial?

I have been too busy with work to finish up my IFR unfortunately. I suspect that I'll be more motivated to take care of it and put it behind me when winter comes and the weather is less VFR.

I am doing it this way because since I have my multi rating all my IFR training I get to Log as PIC time, the majors want multi PIC time. So yes instruments then comerical all will be done in the twin. It is costing my alot a money but I think it will be worth it in the long run.

Doesn't it also allow you to skip an IFR-AMEL checkride later, too?

I'm doing it the opposite way, PPL-ASEL then IA then CPL-ASEL then AMEL-addon then CFI (to build hours for the airlines).
AFAIK, if you do PPL-AMEL you still have to do the AMEL-addon for CPL.
I'm not sure if when you do the AMEL-addon for CPL if you have to do the instrument-manuvers-with-one-failed-engine.

I do believe that yes you have to do two single engine approaches. One percision and one non-percision. If my instructor is right once I take my instrument check ride in the multi then that will also satisfy single engine instrument as well. I hope so anyway.
