# Should operations such as landings or approaches be logged when acting as pilot monitoring?

When operating aircraft that require two crew members, generally one pilot acts as PF (pilot flying) and the other as PM (pilot monitoring). How should operations such as landings and approaches be logged when acting as PM?

Is there any guidance on this for pilots operating under the FAA?

• I'm assuming that the approach flown is IMC at the FAF. I'm not saying this is an answer but I don't see the difference between an qualified SIC monitoring an approach and a CFII monitoring an approach. faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/agc/… – wbeard52 Dec 20 '16 at 4:07
