I have a certification question that involves some regulations I was hoping someone could help out with. I'm a current Commercial Single & Multi Airplane pilot that will be soon training for my Rotorcraft-Helicopter Addon. I would like to go directly into a Commercial Rotorcraft-Helicopter. Here is what I need help with. According to Part 61.129 © - Aeronautical Experience - I will need 35 hrs. of PIC time and 10 hrs. of solo time (or acting as PIC). Can I train towards Commercial Rotorcraft-Helicopter proficiency and log PIC time each flight? What throws me off is another regualtion - Part 61.51 (e) - Logging PIC Flight Time. I don't see anywhere in that part which indicates I could log PIC if I'm not appropriately rated in the aircraft being flown. Am I missing something? Do I have to complete a Private Rotorcraft-Helicopter before the Commercial? I appreciate any insight someone could give.
Okay so I bought an iPad as well as the "so you wanna fly helicopters" app and I love all the info found in the videos. Is the private pilot one geared towards fixed wing worth it for helicopter? How much of the info is he same between fixed wing and helicopter in terms of the FAA exams?
