    Question for you FAA Part 61 pilots that will get the Remote Pilot in Command certificate - Part 107. Are you now or will you in the future, record your Remote PIC flight time (Part 107) along with your regular PIC time (Part 61) in your log books? Or will you maintain 2 separate logs?

    Don't you think it's best to keep 2 separate logbooks to keep things straight. With the feds, one never knows...

    2 separate log books for me.

    Ideally, I would like to use just one, but it would need a separate column for RPIC time to keep it separate . . .

    I think it can only benefit the RP if they have a LogBook against a competing bid.

    If it is required by feds or insurance, I will log it in a separate logbook (most likely electronic) since your UAV time won't count towards your total manned aircraft time or recency of experience. And I suspect I'd log it in minutes instead of tenths of hours.

    I don't recall a requirement for logging flight time in part 107 . . . did I miss it?

    You are right - logging time as RPIC is not required as far as I could tell after searching the rule. "Log Book" is not even mentioned. I was just curious if anyone was doing it anyway for their own records or maybe for insurance purposes . . .
