Logging PIC with a CPL on a 91 Operated Two-Pilot Aircraft

Asked by: 2027 views , , ,
FAA Regulations

I'm a CPL couple hundred hours short of ATP mins, Boss have a 2-pilots aircraft, most of the time I'm the SIC of course, so i log my flightime as such.
Time to time the other pilot gets a break and the boss flies, then obviously, i get to be in charge of flights.
He of course fly with a PPL, with the proper type and ratings needed.

I've been told that in such situation i'm able to log those flights as PIC.

Aircraft is FAA Far 91, I'm PIC Type Rated, and keep 61.58 currency though i don't have an ATP, got the US Ticket based in my Foreign License.

I've been swiming in FAA regs trying to find out this but i can't.

A heads up will be greatly appreciated

    I am not sure I completely understand the situation, but I think the flights you are asking about are times when the “boss” is acting as PIC with you in the right seat. If that is the case, then the following applies:

    14 CFR 61.51(e) Logging Pilot in Command Flight Time

    (1) A sport, recreational, private, commercial, or airline transport pilot may log pilot in command flight time for flights—

    (i) When the pilot is the sole manipulator of the controls of an aircraft for which the pilot is rated, or has sport pilot privileges for that category and class of aircraft, if the aircraft class rating is appropriate;
