Q & A: 
Question of the Week
EAA Aviation Services

Is a sport pilot required to have his/her logbook with them at all times? A DPE said yes, Gleim's Sport Flight Maneuvers (p. 44) says no. Who is correct? (This comes from a brand new sport pilot.)

Answer
:
To answer your question, a sport pilot is required to carry the appropriate endorsements with him/her when exercising sport pilot privileges. You don't need to carry your whole logbook - as you indicated you were told by the DPE - but you will need to be able to show evidence that you have the appropriate endorsements. I guess that makes Gleim's correct.

And congratulations on gaining your sport pilot certificate! I'm sure you'll have many years of flying pleasure. Please do it safely.
