Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

"flight training" - means a training program of ground instruction and airborne training that is conducted in accordance with the flight instructor guide and flight training manual applicable to the aircraft used; So when or if I decide to use my Cub for tail wheel training one of these days I have...

Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

There is no "grey area". Read CAR 421.46 which requires 40 hours of instrument experience and which clearly states that 15 hours of that must be from a "qualified person" - not all 40. No grey there - it doesn't require 40 hrs from a "qualified person", it explicity states 15 hrs. I don't know how ...

Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

Anyways, if anyone thinks, despite the CARs being pretty clear, that the 40 hours instrument experience must be completely training and not any experience outside of this, then I can only conclude that they consider the 45 hour PPL requirement to involve 45 hours of dual and no solo practice at all...

I'm not attacking your character. What I'm smelling is an instructor milking students, and I'm afraid I don't tolerate that kind of unethical behaviour very well. You're making assumptions, and yes it is an attack on my character when you have never met me. I no longer instruct, but my students wil...

Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

CAR 425.21 applies for the 15 hours as explicitly required by CAR 421.46(2)(b)(ii)(C). This is really very simple. I don't see any wiggle room here. Again, call whomever you wish at Transport, and go with their answer. In my opinion it applies anytime there is training conducted specifically for th...

Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

I say its training if the intent is to practice skills for the IFR and therefore it falls under CAR 425.21 I say it's EXPERIENCE as per CAR 421.46. If you don't believe me, call whomever your want at Transport and ask them. CAR 421.46 does NOT say 40 hrs from a "qualified person". It says 15, despi...

Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

The argument is whether you can conduct solo training for the specifically for IFR No, it is not. CAR 421.46 clearly says that 40 hours of instrument EXPERIENCE is required for an initial instrument rating. You have decided to deliberately mis-interpret that as your own definition of "solo training...

Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

FD says all instrument time for IFR must be dual from "qualified person". You are misquoting me. I have said from the beginning that you can credit instrument experience towards the IFR. The argument has never been about whether the time can be credited. You can do it, you just can't do it towards ...

Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

ummmm ... that's how I got my initial group 3 instrument rating, all those years ago - logging PIC under the hood, with a safety pilot in the right seat whom was NOT qualified to teach IFR. At first, the DOT inspector doing my initial ride didn't want to count those hours towards my 40 instrument, ...

Please feel free to do whatever makes you feel safe and secure. However, please do not attempt to propogate your erroneous interpretation of the CARs. Please contact Transport to clarify this if you disagree. I might suggest to everyone that they need at ATPL to solo a C150, but this is clearly not...

Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

Training by definition is the act of learning something new. If you are up there teaching yourself something new, you are training. If your are teaching yourself something for the purpose of obtaining an instrument rating, you are training towards an instrument rating. Until you have the rating, it ...

Re: Safety Pilot - Logging Instrument Time - Who is PIC?

Read the CAR. You need 40 hours of instrument time. Max 20 hrs of that is from a "qualified person". How you get the other 20 hrs of instrument time is up to you, and hood on, logging PIC with fido in the right seat will do it. PS I was self-taught for IFR. Got the sign-off from a part-time corpora...

If however you require training, then you revert to the above mentioned CARs where that person must have certain qualifications But not ALL of the 40 hours of hood time, required for an initial IFR, have to be dual from a "qualified person". See CAR 421.46(2)(b)(ii): (ii) 40 hours of instrument tim...

Re: Shock Cooling

Here's a trick that works great, sure to enrage many pedants here. With a non-geared engine and a constant speed prop, set the idle so low that on the ground, if you pull the throttle back to idle, the engines will quit. This means that in the air, you have an incredible speed brake for steep appro...
