I'm currently finishing up my Canadian PPL. I have questions around logging my time appropriately.
Most of it is pretty straight forward. Looking at 401.08 the only thing I'm unsure about is how to log
(c) the flight crew position in which the holder acted;
I have a "Pilot Logbook" from VIP Pilot Centre. I'm not using it as I'm maintaining my log online but I use it as a template. It distinguishes between the following three roles: Dual, PIC and Co-Pilot.
Here's how I interpret them:
- Dual: during instruction, when CFI is PIC
- PIC: student solo flight / solo flight once I hold my PPL
What about Co-Pilot. Is that only relevant when acting as co pilot in an airplane that requires two pilots? What about if, once I have my PPL, I fly around in a C172 with a friend as the PIC, can I log that as Co-Pilot time?
