Personal logbook

Each member can maintain their own electronic logbook. Every flight booked in is automatically added to member logbooks. Members can edit existing information and can add new entries if they wish. If members fly with different schools that do not operate the system they can still add entries to keep their electronic logbook up to date.

This feature is useful as it can provide a backup of the member's paper logbook, which could be useful in the event the logbook is lost.

To view your logbook, click Logbook in your account page.

When flying under instructor supervision, the instructor will complete training notes soon after the flight. This process will update the affected logbook entry, setting the Pilot Operating Capacity field and updating the notes with the exercises covered in training.

Time columns

Most of the logbook fields are self-explanatory as they match the format of existing paper logbooks. But there are two time based columns by default, used to record time as PIC and Dual.

Members are not limited to two columns though, they can create new ones as necessary. This is done when entering a new logbook record - see Adding a new entry. This feature allows unused columns to remain hidden to declutter the table while allowing members to add columns such as Co-Pilot or Instructor time to their logbook.

Exporting logbook information

The records shown can be exported in CSV format, simply click the button below the list marked Download CSV.

Adding a logbook entry

When you or your instructor adds flights to the system, your logbook is automatically updated with the details. Of course this doesn't happen if you fly with another club that doesn't run the same booking system. In this case, you can add a new logbook entry manually.

If you already have many hours recorded in your paper logbook that you would like added to the system, we recommend entering a summary line instead of every last entry to save time. Just add a logbook entry with the total number of hours on each type. This will be entered as one record into your logbook and may be useful when viewing your logbook summary showing the total number of hours flown and on which type of aircraft.
