Personal Flight Logbooks

Mon Dec 27, 2004 11:32 pm

I know many of us enthusiasts maintain a personal logbook of their flights on commercial (or even non-commercial) aircrafts, stating all relevant facts and registrations in there. My question: do you know some private homepages to look at such logbooks, mainly as I am interested to build my own site soon and look for interesting ideas how to build such site  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Thanks for any idea and happy flying in 2005,
Michael

Not sure about websites but I have a log of every commercial flight I have taken since 1978. Airline, Flight number, Aircraft and Registration.

You can have a look at mine if you'd like:

http://www.pacificmike.net/mytravels.html
http://www.pacificmike.net/route_maps.html

They're pretty basic, and I'm going to be overhauling the pages soon, but it gives the general idea.

Enjoy!

Well I have a page with basically a table that lists my flights. It's nothing great, I haven't even listed the airport codes, just names. Parts of it are incomplete too.

Anyway here it is. Just a table, I should redo it.

Thanks for your comment, Greg!

I need to add some additional info soon (aircraft reg's, etc), but for now the site is a good way to keep track. Plus, should my computer ever die I'll at least have all this info kept on the web.

Thanks again!

I have an Excel Spreadsheet with 1456 rows. What did you use to generate the route map? can it read Excel files?
Thanks

I keep a log but not on the net. I list the following:

Airline
equipment
date
org
dest
reg numb

anything out of the ordinary like
missed approach..at least five without checking the log
hard landings..a few like most of you
over a site like Grand Canyon, large city on clear day,etc
heavy turb(enough to make women scream...its happened).
I'm into the reg numbers. Each plane has its own little personality.
NOTE..There are couple of NW DC-9 I have been on nine times...
I have been on the DC9 a few hundred times, living in the middle of NW-Land..

What did you use to generate the route map?

1million,

To be honest, the maps are nothing more than decent blank maps found on the internet married with the very sophisticated program called Paint  Smile

I haven't found a route-generator other than the great circle mapper. However, the problem with that program is that you can't zoom very well and if two routes follow similar paths (i.e. LAX-DEN vs. BUR-DEN), it's quite difficult to tell them apart.

If anyone out there knows of another program, please let me know  Smile

Thanks,

NZblue

I have my flightlog as an Excel file.

I also had my flight logbook as an Excel file, but last week, my stupid girlfriend kicked my notebook by accident from the desk. I lost my complete flightlog incl. all registrations I flew on  Angry.

I did not only lost all my data but I can also go online with a crappy Pentium II 500-ish MHZ since then  Pissed.

Well, not the end of the world but still annoying.....

Dear all,
thanks for your input, @NZblue: really well done  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Thanks. Well, the Excel-experience I have of course, but with 1251 logged files on paper and Excel I´d rather like to "save" them on the web as well. Paper may get lost, Excel-files destroyed (@Sabena332... I share your experience  Smile/happy/getting dizzy and that´s why I think a website being an additional (and nice) backup. plus: it is always interesting to see with others what trips they made, which types/airlines/routes flown etc.
 Smile/happy/getting dizzy Any more ideas most welcome...

I had the same thing happen to me a few months ago, lost all data on my hardrive including my Excel flight log. Altough not as large as some of the ones mentioned here, it's still going to be a pain to have to go back and relist all those flights again.

I keep an Excel spredsheet of all my DL non-rev travels, just so I'll have a running talley and then when I end up flying these aircraft myself, I can say I was a young lad in their cabin  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I usually put a notation of crew's names, interesting people on the flight, interesting events, etc etc, and if I was in first, coach (quite rarely) in the jumpseat.

You didn't keep back up's of your data?!! My my my, a tragedy indeed!

The tragedy is not as big as I thought at first. I noticed that I still have a CD-ROM with most of my flights and registrations, additionally I have a bunch of boarding passes with the regs written on the backsite. Unfortunately I flew a lot on the jumpseat with a certain airline which doesn't give out boarding passes, so I think I lost this data but I know that I flew on every plane of their fleet, so not a big deal.

@Airmaxfra: You are correct, a website is actually a very good idea to back up files such as flight logbooks, pictures, videos, etc. I will consider to build one up when I have more time in the upcoming year.
