    Our 2006 T206H has a hobbs meter in the upper right of the panel on the passenger's side. When energized one can also display an 'engine time' which appears in MFD on the engine page. Does this suffice for Tach time or is there some other time reference on the plane we don't know about. Thanks for any insights.

    G1000? Yeah, the flight school local to me uses that 'engine time' as tach time.

    Yes, thanks for responding, my A&P confirmed that engine time displayed on the G1000 engine page is used tach time and maintenance scheduling.
