This has probably been posted 100s of times...nonetheless, I'll ask.

I'm 17 and I have decided to start a logbook, as in the one that the pilots fill out for me with information such as cruise altitude, etc...


My questions are:
1) What do I put in the logbook?
2) I know many put "feel free to thumbthrogh" but since I have nothing to thumb through, what should I put as my intro?
3) Should I make it into a binder?
4) who do I ask if I do not see the captain?
FOLLOWUP: When do I ask?

I have a friend who keeps a log by using one sheet per flight and handing it to an FA to give to the captain.

Quoting FLAIRPORT (reply 0):
1) What do I put in the logbook?


A/C rego, flight no., date, departure/arrival times and runways, route length, cruise altitude and maybe the actual route (i.e. waypoints, SIDs, STARs, etc.). Basically any info you want to keep track of!

Explain how you're an enthusiast and you keep a detailed log of your flights. Not much more to it than that.  Laugh out loud

I would include a section that involves the individual captain also, like asking them to rate their landing. Maybe the Captain's name, how long he's been flying, how many hours does his logbook have, etc.

I dunno, rating their landing may be a sensitive topic.  Big grin But you are right about the details of the captain; I overlooked that. In fact, I'd suggest requesting the names of the whole flightcrew.

Man, that's a lot of stuff. Most of the first page you could answer yourself, right? Gate numbers, departure/arrival times - I would switch the questions around so that they are in chronological order from boarding to deplaneing. You fill in what you can during the flight (gates, times, entertainment, food, etc.) and ask the captain to fill in the stuff about runways, flight path, cruise speed and the like.

I would lose the disclaimer too. Make it seem a bit more innocent and I would think you shouldn't really need it. Those who act guilty, usually are!

I'm not that extreme, I just log my Day and Night Hours, as well as Route and aircraft type and date.

Hey Flairport,

Since it's been almost four (4) months since you started this thread....how's the log book coming along? How many hours have you accumulated?

Flairport,

how about a logbook that also includes your boarding passes, stickers, luggage tags and similar items? I've started a scrapbook 2 years ago and I'm almost half through it. Each flight has about 2 full pages, depending on the amount of comments and material...

My logbook has always been my pride and joy. But I only keep basic info such as aircraft type and registration, under the rather basic following format:

Sabena/19.11.1996/SN0553/BRU-JNB/B747-329M/OO-SGC
Comair/24.11.1996/BA6409/JNB-CPT/B737-236A /ZS-NNG
Nationwide Airlines/26.11.1996/CE0715/CPT-JNB/Bac 1-11-4/ZS-NUJ
Air Botswana (Exec.Aerospace)/27.11.1996/BP0302/JNB-MUB/HS-748/ZS-NNW

A few hundreds flights logged now, always trying to have interesting aircraft types and routings. All aircraft enthousiasts should have a log book.

Cheers
