The taxi time is the way it is written, but If I was sitting for an hour waiting for a ground stop I would never log it.

I did like Dave, and took the squat switch time and added a tenth...or 2 for a large airport.

In the early 60s there were no Hobbs Meters on rental planes, I didn't wear a watch and used the tach. I always wondered when checking the plane in, why they accused me of flying an hour and 15 or 20 and calling it an hour. Small airport, 2200 feet, no touch and goes. Land and taxi back...it was awhile later that I learned how the tach recorded.

When I sprayed, I started out logging daily, but when I was flying one airplane for one farm, I would just use the tach numbers and log by the month. Just looked, March 1984/ 104 hours, April 120 etc. Tach was close enough. March also had 11 hours in the Conquest. (spring corn season is busy)
Sometimes I miss it...

We have to log it. It counts against the various flight time limitations from part 117 (previously from part 121).

Have you ever heard someone comment on their hours based on DUTY hours? Not flying hours?

Came across a guy in another forum who said he had 81,000 hours.

I questioned it, and he stated that was duty hours.

I just have never heard anyone even say something like that.




That's about 40 hours a week for 40 years. I don't even think Jonathan Livingston Seagull had those kind of hours. :)

I think the gentlemen has a "big number fixation."




Thanks guys. I had never heard anyone count duty time, but wanted to check.

And Ken, I think so. :)

Well, we have to track duty time, but we don't log it in our logbooks. Lots of duty time limits to comply with in part 117.

Well Randy, you should have got almost double time for all those hours sitting very close to those LOUD radial engines!

Chuckle, your comment made me go back to take a look at those early logbooks, kept track of how many landings and supervised landings with students at Reese, just over 6,000 of them in 2,600 B-25 hours. No wonder Starkey sez "sorry 'bout that" while drawing me a diagram of those llttle cells/hairs in the auditory system.

best, randy
