Can I log Simulated Instrument flight time and instrument approaches with a safety pilot if I need an Instrument Proficiency Check?
I am instrument rated but haven't done my 6 Instrument approaches in over 12 months. So I can not file IFR on my own. Can I bring up an instrument-rated safety pilot 'who is not a CFI/CFII' while I sit left seat with foggles on during VFR conditions and shoot approaches? Can I log it as Simulated Instrument flight time and Instrument approaches even if I need an Instrument Proficiency Check?
