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 don't log FS flights but as for my PPL training I use this beauty:

I have a personal backup as well which I keep in an excel document.

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.  grumpy

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.

For FSX, I use the in-game log.

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 looked at that but I'd have to enter about 800 flights (plus you have to enter multilegs seperately which would make it about 1000 legs to input. Way too much like work.

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"



I remember when the DC-3 was new!

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.

Might be worth having a look at.

Agree with you there, a lot of things are woefully overpriced these days. I had to pay £5 for a pint of Guinness the other day... £5!!!!!  grumpy

28 JGPH1A : Only typing in the data takes long - I think I set the .xls up when I had about 350 flights, so it did take a while to input them all, but after that

33 NorthstarBoy : I just use MS Word, that way i can format things to suit myself, i've tried Excel, but it didn't work for me, too hard to cut/paste, move things aroun
34 JGPH1A : But you can't get Word to add up your mileage or your hours - or count things. At least I don't know how you'd do that in Word.
