Log Book $165 or Duty and Flight Times 9 with Logbook (DFT9) - $544.50
www.aviationsoftware.com.au
A bit on the expensive side, but a very good app which is widely used...

And if you are an Apple fan - LogTen Pro. Runs OS X and iOS for Pad and Phone.

Adjust your FT DT settings at will.

Shoot me a PM and I will reply with my email. I have 3 variations. One from a BS member.

If you are clever with Excel you can cut and paste or combine them to suit.

I feel if you do not store or back up in more than one location, then your flying records are highly vulnerable to being forever lost.

Also, I get Examiners and Instructors to Endorse the flight entry, as evidence. Often many employers will want to see training records or signatures and stamps, in Pilot Logbooks.

In at least a couple different overseas locations, the employers want to see the logbook stamped or certified by the previous employer, due to cheats. Hard to provide them that necessary evidence, if it is in electronic form.

Also, I found in one day I had flown so many legs and flown so much that I was tired, at the end of my duty day. Re-living it (in logbook form) was the last thing I wanted to do, especially when the Crew Rest was minimal . . .

With the electronic version, while convenient, a pilot will omit many necessary details of a flight, especially if he needs to reconstruct a flight sequence for some future purpose.

My thoughts. However, you are welcome to what I have.
Never take "No" for an answer.

I have been using Safelog on PC and iPhone for several years and find it very powerful yet easy to use.

Does anyone have a good spreadsheet or app they can recommend to keep track of flight and duty?

I am too computer illiterate to make one myself!!

Cheers.

Hi Rex,

We use this one.

https://excelpilotlogbook.com

It's just over $50 AUD and is compliant with Australia standards. It got the tick from CASA for use with our AOC.

Cheers

Air Maestro really needs a separate pilot logbook app which is linked to your companies account as a lot of operators using that platform
