Spiral-bound and perfectly sized to fit in an aircraft glove box or
chart pocket, this logbook is a quick reference to the recent history of
the airplane so pilots have immediate access to the airplane's records,
without having to dig through logbooks usually kept in the maintenance
hangar. The Aircraft Flight Log fills a gap in aircraft records for
pilots, and instantly allows them to know the status of the aircraft
they are about to fly. This new version now contains an entry for tracking GPS database updates.
Formatted for ease of use, the Aircraft Flight Log features space for the pilot-in-command to log:
This allows pilots in the following flights to quickly familiarize
themselves with the airplane and be warned of potential problems. It is a
way for the previous pilot to “speak” to the following pilot of details
about the operating characteristics; something not always possible as
pilots don’t typically have the opportunity to personally hand the keys
to the next pilot. The log is also useful for recording operations for
tax purposes, as well as monitoring oil consumption.
The inside of the Aircraft Flight Log can be personalized for each
aircraft, with places to note N-number, type of aircraft, serial numbers
of the airframe and engine(s), and the date of purchase. Contact
information is prominently displayed for owner information should the
log be misplaced, and there is a section detailing the date the log
begins and ends, along with engine tach information.
