I was curious about the “best” path for training. I was talking to a CFI about all the ratings I need to get to become a CFI and eventually get an ATP rating. Since I have my PPL he told me to get a ME rating and do my instrument training in a Multi. It would cost more but I would get PIC time in a multi, which is the most difficult time to get for an ATP. Would I actually get ME PIC time while training with a CFI? He was telling me I could also do commercial in a ME and really be ahead of the game for ME time, especially x-country ME time.
Does this make sense or is it a little overkill if I plan on getting a MEI?
