    (d) Logging of solo flight time. Except for a student pilot performing the duties of pilot in command of an airship requiring more than one pilot flight crewmember, a pilot may log as solo flight time only that flight time when the pilot is the sole occupant of the aircraft.

    So, if all of the meat bombs jump out of the airplane and I'm the only one left, does that time count as solo time?

    Yes, but who cares? Once you have your private ticket solo and PIC are the same thing for all intents and purposes.

    Huh, guess I could have logged it when I was a jumper dumper, but once you're even a basic CPL solo time is not really important anymore, I don't even have a solo column in my current logbook, nor have I logged solo since I got my CPL years ago.

    It's a permanent column in my logbook so I just keep up with it. I don't roll my SES time over each page.

    I was just curious about the question as I was going through my book.
