PPL?

Hi,
I have a few questions about the PPL in terms of hour logging.

1) How do you log the time you do flying every time, so it can be checked and verified etc.
2) Do you count the time as just flying time, or the ground time aswell (i.e. flying in the air time, or engine start up to engine shut down)?

Thanks for any help! 😀

1) Not sure what you mean by this. You enter it into a logbook. Not trying to sound stupid or anything, but I just don't understand what you are meaning.

2) In the US, the time you start the plane until the time you shut down the plane is the time that you can log. Just record and watch the Hobs meter. Make sure not to count the Tachometer 😉

I think that your flight instructor verifies it.

Oh yea, and if your on a solo cross-country flight you get some old geezer at the airport you land at to sing it for you.

Hi, thanks for the replies.

FL050 - I was just wondering how you log every time you fly, i.e. how people can verify your flying time, but it's been answered now.

Thanks peeps 😀
