Can I log Pilot in Command time?

Post by Allan8552 »

I'm currently type rated on a Citation 2 and I do not have my atpl yet. The aircraft is listed on our AOC as rated to fly two crew as far as I know. Our company has the PF flying from the left seat. I log my time in the right seat as co-pilot time but my question is can I log my time in the left seat as Pilot in Command ? Or no.

PF does not equal PIC.
Seat position does not equal PIC.

Your Ops manual should have this clarified.

Yes, you can legally log it as PIC ... IF you are PIC. If someone else is PIC and you're sitting in the left seat flying the plane and making all the decision until something goes wrong, that person is the PIC, not you, and you can't log it as PIC.
