A serious CRM problem!
Dec 1, 2001
I am in the process of converting my logbooks from paper to computer.

I know that Simulator time is not considered part of your Total Time, so I am in the process of re-stating my Sim Time (and Total Time) now. However, I do not know if Sim Time is considered Dual Recieved?

What do you think? Should I keep sim time as dual recieved or take it out of the logbook?


Sim time

You probably have to count the instruction received in the sim as sim time only. I believe that you can receive dual instruction only in an aircraft.

Hope that helps a little.
If you are talking about an airline simulator for your training, you probably cannot log it as dual. You could if the instructor was a cfi and he signed your log for you, but airline instructors are not required to be cfi's, and I have never met one who was willing to sign a logbook. Just log it as sim time, or not at all. It's pretty much useless anyway. Hope this helps.
