If you are looking to build time, or if you are simply looking for an excuse to fly more and maybe share some of the expense, one way to do that is to act as a safety pilot for another pilot in simulated instrument conditions. But with the benefits of that arrangement come certain responsibilities and limitations. Unfortunately, the regulations don’t necessarily provide a clear explanation of those responsibilities and limitations. As a result, I am frequently asked questions regarding safety pilot operations. I have compiled a number of those questions and the corresponding answers in a new article: Safety Pilot Questions Answered. I hope the article clears up some of the confusion. If it doesn’t, feel free to send me a message and I’ll be happy to try and explain further.
