Why would you say yes? I'm always curious about whether answers are based on something that was read or just made up.saviboy said:I am not an Mei but ME rated. I am also current instrument-wise. can I log the sim time I do on my own. I would say yes but look for confirmation.thanks

c) Instrument experience. Except as provided in paragraph (e) of this section, no person may act as pilot in command under IFR or in weather conditions less than the minimums prescribed for VFR, unless within the preceding 6 calendar months, that person has:
(1) For the purpose of obtaining instrument experience in an aircraft (other than a glider), performed and logged under actual or simulated instrument conditions, either in flight in the appropriate category of aircraft for the instrument privileges sought orin a flight simulator or flight training device that is representative of the aircraft category for the instrument privileges sought—
(i) At least six instrument approaches;
(ii) Holding procedures; and
(iii) Intercepting and tracking courses through the use of navigation systems.
Ah! The key! I don't think you can answer =any= logging question without reference to the universal rule of logging.Ralgha said:No, it doesn't say you have to have an instructor, but it does say that you have to have logged it. Reference 61.51 to find that you must have an instructor present to log sim time.

A flight simulator or approved flight training device may be used by a person to log instrument time, provided an authorized instructor is present during the simulated flight.

Nosehair can read. I think you missed what he was doing. He's playing word games, reading it as logging the approach =without= logging the time. 61.51 says you can't log instrument =time= in a sim/FTD without an instructor. Doesn't say anything about logging anything else.Ralgha said:Ya'll can't freaken read.
