3) Can I log time as the safety
pilot in this plane if I haven't yet gotten the endorsment for
complex/HP? 91.109.b.2 says the safety pilot just needs to be a
private pilot with the appropriate category and class ratings.
You've answered your own question. The safety pilot needs to be
rated in the category and class of the aircraft.
Actually, now that I re-read the FAR sections I quoted (61.31), I think Jose
may be right. This sounds like a good question to fire off to the local
FSDO and/or AOPA.
