Saftey Pilot?...


Well-Known Member
Could a private pilot with a current ASEL rating be a saftey pilot for someone in a plane that is complex? Not high performance, just complex. Even though the saftey pilot did not have a complex sign-off.
Yes, he is not acting PIC, therefore he does not need the signoff. Just needs to be rated in cat./class.
That is exactly what I thought.

I could be wrong on this...but doesn't it say somewhere that the safety pilot must be properly rated in the airplane also?

Would this also include a complex endorsement?

I think I read that on an FAA test or study guide?
see CFR 91.109(b)(1)
its Private Pilot in category and class.. no mention of needing the 'complex.' That is not a rating, it is a logbook endorsement.

I am not saying this directly to you av8rmsu, but in general I have found that the more literally one reads the CFR's, the easier this stuff gets to interpret.
