    Hi, I can't seem to find anything clear about how much simulator time, say in a Redbird, counts towards part 61 commercial?

    Thanks!

    50. It's way down at the bottom. Key word being approved.

    e. The 250 hours of flight time as a pilot may include 50 hours in an approved flight simulator or training device that is representative of the single-engine or multi- engine airplane (as appropriate)

    While the Redbird is good for instrument training, I don’t think it is a good trainer for visual maneuvers. If that is what you had in mind.
