View Full Version : Hour building max hours that can be logged?

27th Oct 2007, 01:23
Hi Folks,

Currently I'm about to undertake a month of hour building. I'm looking at doing approximately 110 hours to add to the 55 I have from my PPL to bring me upt o 165 before starting a NR and JAR ME/CPL.

Was discussing my plan with a fellow pilot recently and he was of the view that when hour building, one can only log 100 hours over a period of one month as any more than that in such a short time period could not be logged/included under the JAR system.

Very much appreciate it if someone can confirm if this is really the case.

Many Thanks.

sounds like bull crap to me! if you fly it you log it, you were there! but i am not an expert on jar rules and regs.

JAR OPS contains rules on how many hours you can fly - but these only apply if you are operating a commercial flight, which you clearly aren't (yet!). I wonder if your mate is (wrongly) thinking of these limits?

No, you can log as much flying as you do in any month.

You can fly as much as the FBO, school or operator allows you to fly.
Not to be mean, but I would not let somebody who has 55 hrs fly 8 hrs a day.
Start slow, 2 hrs then 3 then 4 then two times 3 for a total of six a day.
That is plenty tiring already.

Fly as much as you want mate. The limitation only applies to commercial operations, not private flights.

For commercial ops it's 90 hours in a one month period (not calendar month) - and not 100 as your friend states....
