WestWind Airlines Rules & Regulations

§1 Logging of Pilot-in-Command Flight Time

  1. Aircraft Category Rating.
    1. Pilots may only log hours in a category of aircraft at or below the category for which the pilot holds a rating.
    2. Exception. A pilot may log hours in an aircraft which is in a category for which he/she is training to take a check ride provided that he/she has accumulated the required number of hours to be promoted to the next category.
    3. Exception. WestWind Test Pilots may log hours flown in any category of aircraft when the flight is conducted with the approval of the Senior Test Pilot or the Chief Pilot.
    4. Pilot Flight Time consists of that time commencing from Pushback up to and ending at Gate Arrival.
  2. Payware Aircraft.
    1. In order to have sufficient quality control over WestWind's livery, textures for payware aircraft will only be made available if a painter at WestWind owns the payware aircraft in question and the aircraft publisher's policies allow for third party repaints.
  3. Aircraft Type.
    1. Pilots may log hours only in specific makes and models of aircraft listed in the WestWind fleet. The WestWind Fleet consists of those aircraft types (makes and models) currently available for download in WestWind's hangars.
      1. Pilots may log time in a payware aircraft that does not have WestWind textures provided that a freeware aircraft of the same make and model is currently available in a WestWind hangar. For example you may log time in a payware MD-11 since a freeware MD-11 is available in a WestWind hangar.
    2. Pilots may log hours only in makes and models of aircraft appropriate to the type of mission —
      1. Passenger flights will use aircraft from the WestWind Passenger Fleet capable of operating safely at the origin and destination airports.

      5. Aircraft in the WestWind Historical Fleet are primarily used for charter flights. The Historical aircraft flown should be appropriate for the intent of the charter and logistics (aircraft range, airport compatibility, etc.) should be considered. Charters may follow current passenger or cargo routes.
      6. Training flights may use any aircraft from the WestWind Passenger, Cargo, or Executive Charter fleet, subject to the restrictions of paragraph (a). Senior Captains and above may log hours for training flights in aircraft from the WestWind Historical Fleet.

    1. Hours flown at other than normal simulation speeds (1x) may only be logged as the actual real-time hours flown.
      1. Clarification. If you spend 1 hour flying a 2x Simulation Speed, you may log 1 hour only.
      2. Clarification. If you run a simulation at 1/4 speed, you may NOT log 4x the normal flight hours.

  7. Unattended Flights. Pilots may only log hours spent in direct attendance of a flight, to include the monitoring of an aircraft flying on auto-pilot. Extended periods of time spent away from a running simulation (unattended flight) shall not be counted as loggable time.
