Recording Flights

Sun Jul 06, 2008 9:57 pm

I was just wondering how everyone keeps a record of all their flights taken, i've started both a hardcopy journal and a basic excel file (and flight memory and ba97). I prefer the excel as its easier to keep and update but the journal looks nicer but was wondering how everyone else keeps their log.

We cover this every three or four months but I'm not complaining.
So, here goes...............
I have a flight log and have since the late 50's.
What I log is :
City departed
City arrived at
Reg or N number. To me, thats the most important because there are two NW DC9-50's I have been on ten times. Unless I log the reg number, I would never know that. Thats why reg number is important.
Little notes on certain flights like......go around at MEM or Hard landing at FLL or funny F.A. pre-takeoff announcement or landed on 27L at DTW...(rare).
One note I have on some planes unfortunately is W.O., Written Off......the plane crashed or was scrapped at a later date.

You can put anything you want in your personnal log. Some folks do flight numbers.
To me thats not important, but to each his own. It's YOUR log.
Logs fun to built as you travel by air throughout the years to come.

If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

I do Excel and myflightmemory. I record the date, time, cities, reg #s, Flight #, and equipment. A lot on Anutters use myflightmemory because you can publish your banner! Here's mine:

Use FlightMemory for all my flights and keep an Excel spreadsheet detailing my entire Delta mileage account (every single mile accounted for; as a result of that, I have every single DL flight number that I've ever taken...). Don't bother with my US and AA accounts that much.

For my on duty flights I have an excel file, putting in:

Day, Aircraft type, Registration, PIC, Departure airport, destinatino airport, off block, on block, block time (either PF or PNF), landings, type of approach, mileage OFP, mileage GC, remarks.

And of course flightmemory for all my flights, including the on duty ones and the private ones:

But I am using the German one, because I am German.

I do pretty much all. I keep a detailed record in the back of my diary, which I can compile as I'm travelling, and then update both my spreadsheets and my FlightMemory once I get home. I calculate take off and touchdown times by always snapping a picture so I can have the time stamp as a reference, even if it's just of the floor of the cabin or something.
