Folks, Apologies up front - my FAR knowledge is not where it should be these days. I'm just trying to figure out if I can count any of my Air Force sim time towards total time for an ATP under 61.159? Sounds like the time needed to be by an accredited Part 142 outfit. I have to think the countless hours I've spent in my guchi Air Force sims flying instruments and receiving training in high performance jets should count for that? Also - I thought I remembered reading somewhere that for an ATP the 500 hour XC requirement does not require landings be made >50 miles away, i.e. - I could log almost all of my Air Force time as ATP XC since we blast quite a bit further than that to the MOAs (and then come back and land at the same place). Can someone point me towards the regs or call my BS?
