Hi everyone,

I have some questions about my logbook and counting IFR time.
I'm using an FAA Senior Logbook for my training and professional career. But there is an issue with my current logbook, the column called operational condition IFR time is not included in my logbook. please look at the image below for better understanding. In my loogbook it says Actual, Simulated, approaches, holds and nav track. These are not the same as instrument flight rules. I have worked for a US airlines Part 135 and flew over 700 hours in IFR condition (10 years ago). How can I logg this hours as IFR? since a column is missing in my logbook?
Can I create an IFR column (there are empty columns ) and insert the time I flew under instrument flight rules (IFR)

I'm trying to take a IRI (A) course that requires 800 hours IFR time and the flight school is giving my hard time?

Looking forward to hear your comments

My logbook on top and EASA logbook at the bottom.

It is your personal log book, you can do what you like with it. Add columns, rename them etc. Ultimately, you must log those items required by your State of Licence issue, which may not be the same as EASA.

Use a spare column and put all your part 135 time in it. Sorted.

In nearly 30 years flying, what records and summaries matter to me have changed quite a number of times, and as result I've often changed column headings as Whopity suggests.

Surely I am very far from unusual in this.

Fortunately modern technology has made that very easy to do, with electronic logbooks, and the ability to do your own printing.

I have always used military loog books and amended them as required.
