- Total Time
I have recently been able to get some time in a level C 747-200 simulator. The instructor has a type rating in the aircraft, an ATP, and a CFI but no MEI. I assumed that I would be able to log it as plain old simulator time, and was going to do that just for fun, to have something interesting in the book. However, some other instructors at this place said that I can log it not just as total time but also as multi-engine, provided that the instructor is qualified (and they say this instructor is.) I am pretty wary about doing this, but this advice comes from pretty reliable sources. The sim is approved by the FAA for use in a 142/121 training curriculum, through which people receive their type ratings. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of issue? I'm not paying for the time and I've learned a ton in the few hours I've flown it and I would be satisfied with not logging anything at all. But, if I can legitimately add to my multi or total time I am inclined to do it. Any advice?
