SFI Recording of Flight Time

Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

SFI Recording of Flight Time

May someone enlighten me as to the correct recording of Flight Time as an SFI on Full Flight Simulator (Level D)
A JAA log book has Section 11 for Flight Simulator- some SFI's are logging time as PIC?!
I believe that I may only log as Flight Instructor and Section 11?

Any definitive?

It doesn't matter because, no matter how you record it, time spent instructing in a FSTD cannot be counted towards the experience requirements for the issue of any licence or rating. It is not 'flight time', which is defined in JAR-FCL 1 and 2 in relation to aircraft and not to FSTDs. I suggest you record it the same way as you do time spent sat down the back sipping a G&T - it is of equal value.

Could I suggest you read you company Operations Manual which should state how "duty time" is recorded. Apart from not exceeding approved working hours the time is no value for anything else as stated by BillieBob.
