Hi!! Who can explain me how to log flight time correctly I mean I'm a first officer on multi engine multi crew helicopter . The question is when can I log PIC time or should I log only SIC? Cuz I've told that you can only log PIC when you are captain. Is that true? Thanks for everybody who will explain.
It is worth checking with your local aviation authority because the rules vary from country to country.
For example, you may be flying a helicopter as multicrew (because of contract requirements) but it isn't certified for multicrew. [edit after viewing your profile - shouldn't be a problem on the C+]
You may also find that you need an ATPL to be PIC of a multicrew helicopter, whereas other authorities permit it on a CPL.
Logan - P2 and Dual time are different things but both will help towards your total time. There is normally also a P1 (PIC) requirement (and P1 on twin engine too).
The FAA system permits Dual to be logged as P1 if you already have a PPL, which slightly skews the competition on the international market in the early days - they will have more P1 time because they have logged all their CPL training, IR training, CFI training, CFII training and ATPL training as P1! This is also how traffic watch hour building works/ed in the US.
