To Log PIC or NOT to Log PIC, That is the Question!

Can two certificated and rated pilots both log simultaneous PIC flight time if neither is a CFI? Surprisingly, the answer is yes! To see why and how, we’ll first need to consult the FARs for guidance.

“Pilot in Command means the person:

  1. Has final authority and responsibility for the operation and safety of the flight.
  2. Has been designated as the pilot in command before or during the flight ...

What will you do with a pilot license?
Travel!

 

When Seth Rae earned his Private Pilot Certificate in December 2013, he took to the skies and began checking off items on the to-do list that he had made in his mind even before he began flight training. On January 20, 2014, Seth flew to Long Island Republic Airport (FRG) in Farmingdale, New York to visit a longtime friend, and to go flying together. On the way back to Hartford-Brainard, he snapped this amazing shot of the Connecticut Shoreline from overhead Bridgeport, Connecticut. Seth has also posted a video of a previous flight to FRG.

One of the exciting things about flying in New England is our close proximity to world famous places in iconic American cities. Here are some photos for you to enjoy taken during a recent flight down the New York City Hudson River Corridor.

Matt Graniero was kind enought to share the pictures he took. Our thanks to him!
