Do You Keep A Logbook?

Tue Oct 23, 2001 10:28 pm

Do any of you keep a logbook of your flights?
Im an a/c fanatic, but have never kept a log of my flights (I know which a/c and airlines I have been on, but not the reg's, dates, flying times etc)

What sort of info do you keep about your flights?

Yep...

For passenger flights I keep: Date, registration, type, operator, flight number, where from, where to, mileage (note I do not keep flight or block times). All are logged in a neat MS-Excel spreadsheet.

Total so far: 1238 flights, 75 types (101 sub-types), 415 different aircraft, 115 different airlines.

PS: For my personal flying as a PPL, I keep a more conventional pilot's log book with all the normal stuff.

I just started this year: I write down the dates, routes, type and registration of each flight. Not much in it so far, but I hope it will grow fast to become really big Big grin

Since 1993 I have logged any pieces of information about my flights.
Most important is the registration and that's always the first which gets written down before any flight.

Greg, did you try to be poetic?

In 1999 I started to keep a log (airline, a/c, flight#, date, departure city, arrival city etc). I went back and succesfuly tracked my other flights from (1990-___) with a few missing flight numbers, and no reg#'s of course, I have most of mine from when I was a baby (dates are correct, even got the reg# off my first flight when I was 6 months old). So far I have 73 on my list with 5 more going to be added this week.

Udo..not at all. It's just true. I'm not a mile junkie or anything...but they do come in handy for upgrades.

I have one given to me on a BOAC flight (a Comet 4C) back in 1961. I ran out of room a number of years ago and keep up by using 4x6 cards with the same foremat. The original also allowed for a captain's signature, some of which I have and others not.
