P1, P1/s, P u/t... what does it mean?

I know P1 is PIC. what's P1/s and Pu/t?
what about P2? is P2 like the F/O is a commercial flight?
Is there more abbreviations of "P**" and its variations?

Is there a table somewhere to know about all this abbreviations?

Pilot under training. There should be a glossary at the beginning of your logbook

The terms and their use differ around the world. Which part of our world are you in Alex?

This is what my (UK-centric) Pooley's logbook says if that helps:

P1 - Pilot in command. They guy that makes the decisions, signs for the aircraft and has the ultimate responsibility for the safe operation of the flight. Use this if youíre flying solo as a student/licence holder or when carrying passengers as a licence holder.

P U/T Or Dual - Use this for any training flight/instruction received. Youíre revalidation flight once youíve got your licence is also recorded in this way.

P2 or Co-pilot is used only when the aircraft is to be operated in a multi-crew environment. Unlikely, but not impossible in the SEP/PPL arena.

P1S - Pilot in command (under supervision) may be used for a successful outcome of a skills test or proficiency check. (Keeping it simple...)

SPIC - May be used for recording flight time on an integrated course where there is an instructor on board who does not intervene in the operation of the flight.

Instructor - should be used only for flights when you are the person giving instruction to another pilot.

Your logbook is exactly that - Yours. You should record all flights in which you are operating as part of the crew or for which you wish to claim the time towards the issue of a licence or rating (hour building, for example). Some people record memorable flights they do with other pilots, noting the times of departure/arrival but not counting the totals in their flight time. Thatís your choice.

Thank you. that's very useful. becuase actually, my logbook only distinguishes between PIC, CO-PILOT, DUAL and FI. and it just mentions that PIC, SPIC and PICUS are all the same.
but it does not mention any terminology with P1, P1/s, etc.
so thank you!

My logbook (Easa FCL-Compliant Pilot Log) only has 4 categories and different from those, are these the correct equivalents:

1) PIC = P1, P1/s, SPIC, PICUS, student flying solo.
2) CO-PILOT = P2
3) DUAL = student pilot under training with the instructor on board = Pu/t,
4) FI = Instructor

Does that look correct correct?

by the way, what "SPIC" and "PICUS" stands for?

SPIC - Student Pilot in Command
PICUS - Pilot in Command Under Supervision

Yes, youíre correct with the interpretation.

The Pooley's list looks about 30 years out of date!

Annex to ED Decision 2011/016/R
Acceptable Means of Compliance and 1 Guidance Material to Part-FCL
(b) Logging of time:
(1) PIC flight time:
(i) the holder of a licence may log as PIC time all of the flight time during which he or she is the PIC;
(ii) the applicant for or the holder of a pilot licence may log as PIC time all solo flight time, flight time as SPIC and flight time under supervision provided that such SPIC time and flight time under supervision are countersigned by the instructor;
(iii) the holder of an instructor certificate may log as PIC all flight time during which he or she acts as an instructor in an aircraft;
(iv) the holder of an examiner’s certificate may log as PIC all flight time during which he or she occupies a pilot’s seat and acts as an examiner in an aircraft;
(v) a co-pilot acting as PICUS on an aircraft on which more than one pilot is required under the type certification of the aircraft or as required by operational requirements provided that such PICUS time is countersigned by the PIC;
(vi) if the holder of a licence carries out a number of flights upon the same day returning on each occasion to the same place of departure and the interval between successive flights does not exceed 30 minutes, such series of flights may be recorded as a single entry. (2) co-pilot flight time: the holder of a pilot licence occupying a pilot seat as co-pilot may log all flight time as co-pilot flight time on an aircraft on which more than one pilot is required under the type certification of the aircraft, or the regulations under which the flight is conducted;
(3) cruise relief co-pilot flight time: a cruise relief co-pilot may log all flight time as co-pilot when occupying a pilot’s seat;
(4) instruction time: a summary of all time logged by an applicant for a licence or rating as flight instruction, instrument flight instruction, instrument ground time, etc., may be logged if certified by the appropriately rated or authorised instructor from whom it was received;
(5) PICUS flight time: provided that the method of supervision is acceptable to the competent authority, a co-pilot may log as PIC flight time flown as PICUS when all the duties and functions of PIC on that flight were carried out in such a way that the intervention of the PIC in the interest of safety was not required.

(h) When an aircraft carries two or more pilots as members of the operating crew, one of them shall, before the flight commences, be designated by the operator as the aircraft PIC, according to operational requirements, who may delegate the conduct of the flight to another suitably qualified pilot. All flying carried out as PIC is entered in the logbook as ‘PIC’. A pilot flying as ‘PICUS’ or ‘SPIC’ enters flying time as ‘PIC’ but all such entries are to be certified by the PIC or FI in the ‘Remarks’ column of the logbook.
