Although it doesnt matter I was curious, when Im giving dual do I log the landings if I dont make em?? Also, I fly a lot of X-C's but I also fly a lot to nearby airports that are maybe 6- 30 miles away. Can I log this as X-C time or does the 50 NM thing apply. Im not sure if the 50NM was for training purposes or not. I also remember something about airport to airport is what you can log.

need to be sole manipulator of the controls to log the landings

I would only log flights >50nm as XC, even though the FARs state any flight to another airport is a XC.

You can log whatever you want, but the landings will only count for anything if you're the sole manipulator of the controls.

It depends on what you want to use the X/C time for. If you are keeping track for another rating, then they have to be 50NM. If your meeting the requirements of 135 for example, then they all count. I created an extra column for "all X/C" and logged everything that landed at another airport, and reserved the stock X/C for >50 ones. The ATP certificate is different still, for that one you don't have to land, you just have to fly at least 50NM away from your departure point, but I ignored those since they made up such a small fraction of my time anyway.

The regs say that anything point to point can be considered x/c. However, if you are using the x/c time to acquire a rating, it must be over 50 nm. The point to point stuff is useful when trying to meet 135 IFR mins.

Thx a lot. Ill not log those landings I dont do. I guess Ill just keep logging only those X-C times that are over 50 NM since I already qualify for 135 that way.
