I’m going to be heading to Australia in about a month and was going to see if I can take up an airplane around Sydney while I’m there.
I haven’t done any research on the matter but I was under the impression that:
- You can log dual time in a foreign country/airplane
- You can only log PIC time in an aircraft for which the registration and the country of issue of your license is the same
Is this the case? If so, can you point me to supporting documentation?
Update: I’ve done some investigation. From what I can tell, you are not allowed to act as PIC of an Australian registered aircraft without an Australian License. You can get a Certificate of Validation which allows CASA to recognize your Canadian license as an Australian one. As for logging the time, I suspect you can do it in either case above, so long as the Dual time was with a foreign instructor.
