I currently hold a private pilot license. Should I do the multi-engine rating next, and then the instrument rating? Or, would you do the instrument and then the multi? Does it really matter? The reason I ask is that I talked to someone who said that if you do the instrument before the Multi, you are only licensed to fly the single engine airplane in IFR conditions. The multi would be VFR only. So, he said that if I did the multi first, the instrument rating would qualify me for both MEL and SEL. Thanks for your help!
