Just wonder what kind of flight book you do have. With flight book I mean a book where you write down some info from your flights. Do you have it in your computer or have you bought a book, and if from where. I am looking for a flight book, because I have made one myself, but I am not pleased with it.

I use the back of my diary for the flights taken in that year, which isn't so great as by the end of the year I've almost always lost it somewhere - normally by leaving it in the seat pocket of an aircraft. I also use flightmemory, and in addition keep my own log on my PC of everything taken. Annoyingly each one doesn't tally to the same number, so one day I've got to work back through it all and find the flight I either forgot to enter, or the one I entered twice by accident.
...love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

I used to use a simple lined notebook, but then I tried to (unsuccessfully) change to Excel. After that, I discovered FlightMemory and I've been using it ever since. But soon, before the list gets too big to handle, I will have to write it in my own log book or another word document for my own backup.
I think I've seen one on sale on the on board duty free cart on CX... not sure though.

I used to have one real book whcih I got from my flight school. but I don't use it anymore. For my flights on duty I have an excel file where I put all my flights in and of course for all my flights on duty and private: www.flightmemory.com

Quoting Leskova (Reply 11): I used to have an Excel file at first, then converted that to an Access database. These days, it's on my own website, sitting in an MSSQL server, with access to it through several ASP-pages.
Make me one toooo ! How do you do MS Access ? I have it on my laptop but I don't know how to work it.

I bought a log book from a book shop at the Ansett terminal in 1977 in Sydney, from memory it had about 100 pages and about 25 flight entries per page. My first entries were to accuratley log all the flights I had made before that date and lucky for me my good old dad had most of the information. When I started working I started to lose interest because I had about 4 solid pages of F27s with just 6 rego numbers and about a dozen destinations repeated over and over.
When excel came along I transcribed all my flights to annual spreadsheats. I still keep this up to date although now registration numbers are of little interest and the aircraft type and airline I find far more interesting.
I have also made a page that has limited information, just for the fun of it.
I have a list of each main type of aircraft and the last airline and type I flew on and also just the arrival city. This list is updated after each flight and as such the info changes all the time.
For example my 737 entry says " AS 800 LAX" and my A318-321 entry says "UA 319 ORD"

Quoting PlymSpotter (Reply 15): Well if you have the data in an Excel spreadsheet then I believe there is a tool on Flight Memory which enables you to upload the data en mass, so you don't have to in-put each flight separately
Yes but they want to charge money for the privilege - stuff that.
