How should I log my CFII training time?

Asked by: 4103 views ,
Flight Instructor

I am starting to work on my CFII. I am using a contract CFI and a corporate aircraft to do my training. When I am working on my CFII and I am "teaching" my instructor who will be in the left seat, do we both log the time or just the CFI who is teaching me? As I understand it, the CFII training is me sitting in the right seat with the "real" CFI doing most of the actual flying and me explaining.

    This is a somewhat confusing question. So to be clear, you need a CFI certificate to log dual-given. As a CFI in training you do not log dual-given.
    Then the usual logging rules apply – sole manipulator of the controls, dual received etc.

    If your CFII is flying while you are teaching, then you cannot legally log anything except for dual received and total time.  You are not the authorized instructor and you are not the sole manipulator of the controls to log PIC.
    When I did my CFII training, I was required to teach and fly at the same time.
