Multi-Engine Rating

The multi-engine rating allows you to begin building time that will make you competitive for entry level jobs in the commercial pilot industry.  While there are a very limited number of single engine commercial pilot jobs available, it would not be wise to pursue them if your ultimate goal is to fly the "big iron" for a major airline.  Building large amounts of single engine time has limited utility once you get past 500 hours.

FAA REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MULTI-ENGINE RATING

No age requirement.
No formal ground school.
No FAA regulated flight time is required, but you must have at least a private pilot certificate.

 
You will also get your high performance endorsement in order to act as Pilot In Command (PIC). Most multiengine aircraft are both HP and complex. 

You must have an endorsement in your logbook or training record from an authorized instructor and that endorsement must attest that the applicant has been found competent in the aeronautical knowledge areas appropriate to the pilot certificate for the aircraft class rating sought.
