I found an old logbook from about 10 years ago with about 4 hours logged "PUT" in a C152
Recently I've been considering doing a BGA Glider Pilot to NPPL conversion and that requires a minimum of 10 hours flying training
Now I know that the amount of hours I actually have bears little relation to how many I will need to satisfy an instructor.. but just for the sake of accuracy.. do those 4 hours still contribute toward my training total? For NPPL or even for JAR PPL ?
Provided they are genuine and can be verified if required...
In the UK we rely on honesty and if you get caught
It is an offence to make, with intent to deceive, any false representations for the purpose of procuring the grant, issue, renewal or variation of any certificate, licence, approval, permission or other document. Persons doing so render themselves liable, on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum (currently £5000, or in Northern Ireland £2000) and on conviction on indictment to an unlimited fine or imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or both.
Your P/UT hours should count towards the minimum requirement fot the NPPL, but of course completion of the NPPL requires however many hours it takes you to reach the standard necessary to pass the various tests...
When I started flying power I already had some 130 gliding hours and a Silver C, fondly hoped to get my NPPL in 10 hours.
another silly questions: Why do we actually log hours when flying aircraft? How did this start?
I would say so we can proof our experience. However for driving different cars, trucks etc we dont. Is this not kind of similar? For boating I have a logbook as well, but nobody requiers your to log hours.
