Default Logging time as sim instructor

Searched the threads and 61/121, but couldn't find the answer...

For any 121 sim instructors out there, this question is for you:

Do you log your sim instruction as "dual given" and/or simulator as well? If not, how do you log it? Thanks for any input.

To sit sideways and look at a chart plotter of somebody else flying?
I guess you could make a special line of dual given sim.
I would not count it in any other total.

You can log anything you want anyway you want, but sim dual given isn't flight time and won't help for any ratings, currency, or job prospect.

During my years as a sim instructor I never logged it as "Dual Given/Flight Instructor". The simple answer is we weren't in flight. Also, 121 instruction is not like Part 61/91 in that you don't need a Flight Instructor rating to perform the instruction.

However, I did log the time for simulator time and that was my break down. No one, airline or FAA ever questioned my methods.

Also, never log any sim time as actual flight time. Many people confuse sim time counting as "flight time" for a rating vs. actual flight as regular hours in a logbook. Your PIC/SIC/DUAL must add up to your total flight time. If not you will get dinged in an interview.

Log it as dual given/sim, in a separate column. You don't want to mix it up with airplane dual given or total time), but you might need a sim instructor job some day and having a record of your sim instruction will help.

Your PIC/SIC/Student pilot SOLO time should add up to your total flight time. There are times when you are permitted to log PIC even if it is dual received.

I keep a separate logbook for sim instructor time. Doesn't count towards my totals, but it's interesting to see how much time I have spent in the box. At this point, its only value is that it is meaningful to me.

And to answer your question, I log it under Simulator and I changed a column to read "Sim Instruction Given."

If you're logging it for future jobs I'd keep track of the type of training given - initial, recurrent, rating rides, LOFT, etc.
