One thought on “ORO.FTL.110 Operator Responsibilities

  1. EASA has clarified how we log our pilot hours: bloc to block.

    But I wonder if anyone can find the EASA standard for logging aeroplane airframe hours.

    Reading through various blogs it would seem that some people log in the same way as pilot hours: bloc to bloc, which is incidentally in the Piper PA28 manual as the correct way, whilst others say that it should be from take-off to landing only.

    I would like to know if there is an EASA standard, or to put it simply is a 5000 hour PA28 bought in France the same as a 5000 hour PA28 bought in England?
