FAR:Safety Pilot & High Performance/Complex? by Jim
It is my understanding (always subject to correction) that as a safety pilot you may log PIC time because you are indeed a required crew member for the operation. However, to log PIC time you also must be qualified to act as PIC of that particular aircraft. -- Jim Burns...
