EASA and FAA flight time and logbook

Hi guys,

If I have an EASA licence (and logbook), can I go in the US (FAA) a write down hours on my EASA logbook?

I mean, can I sum the European time with the FAA time on the same logbook?

Thanks

Of course you can! flying is flying, You don't even need a logbook technically.

Now, the caveat is how your planning on logging it. If its solo PIC cross country for example then it is fine, if you plan to do any 'Under the hood' flying then it shall not be counted in EU land.

Yes, that's true.

And if i want to fly simulated ifr (like in europe we do) with a certifed safety pilot which will not log any time, I still can log PIC IFR right?

Thanks

It's the FAA practice of two pilots both logging PIC that EASA don't like - but assuming you can get proof that your safety pilot didn't log anything (maybe their logbooks for the relevant period) - then presumably it wouldn't be a problem. There are whole threads on this subject. The bottom line is that whilst flying under the hood is legally a two pilot operation in both jurisdictions; the FAA allow both to log PIC and EASA don't allow the SP to log anything! P1 and P2 is the obvious solution...

EASA are trusting you not to lie in your log book, both pilots could log solo cross country time if they wanted, however if your hours got checked you could find yourself unstuck.

If your planning to fly simulated IFR, your safety pilot will need to have an FAA license to. If your both EASA pilots I would log flights according to EASA rules. You could make a remark saying it was simulated IFR time and log the time however it wouldnt be counted, so no real point unless your planning to fly with said FAA license.
