So I just want to make sure I'm interpreting the regs correctly for this one: There are two instrument rated pilots (both current, have medical, etc) looking to get some practice approaches in, in weather that will often go between VMC and IMC. Because of this an IFR flight plan will be filed. I know there's a difference between acting as pic and logging pic. Both of the pilots have the ability to act as pic, and for logging pic: 1) Sole manipulator of controls in aircraft for which you are rated 2) Alone in the aircraft 3) When you are the acting PIC and more than one pilot is required So because someone is wearing the hood, a safety pilot is required (i.e. more than one pilot required) and thus both pilots can log PIC right? I'm not sure where there is any stipulation about the type of flight plan or conditions outside the aircraft. Is that correct?
