As I move through my flying experience, the possibilities for logging time change.
- Before I was rated, my time with an instructor is logged as dual only. Most of these entries were made by various CFI's.
- After being rated, FBO checkouts and flight reviews were logged as PIC and dual. These entries were often made by myself and signed by the CFI.
- When receiving instruction for endorsements (tailwheel, high performance, complex), entries were usually made by the CFI. It appears that most of the time, the instructors making the entries favored the idea that until I had the endorsements, they would leave the PIC column blank and log only dual received.
The answers to This Question lead me to believe that I could indeed have logged this as both dual and PIC, since I was rated for the category and class for which I was flying.
Here is the question: What consideration should be given before I go back and add PIC to the flights which were filled in by someone else? Should I leave it alone or claim the time as PIC since I was both "sole manipulator" and rated in that category and class.
