Experience and training are the backbones of a successful career in aviation. While not all pilots will pursue commercial licenses, experience is essential for the safe operation of an aircraft.
A flight log book is required keep track of one's flying experience in an organized way. With a pilot logbook, an aviator can record his or her flight time, flight type, departure point, destination, VFR or IFR information and much more.
For student pilots, a log book is essential for success. Without the proper logbook, it can be difficult to receive one's Private Pilot License (PPL). All flight examiners require proper documentation of previous experience prior to issuing a PPL license.
For experienced pilots, a traditional log book may be cumbersome. Since a flight log book provides solid documentation of a pilot's experience, it's essential to make sure it's current. If a logbook is lost, a commercial or professional pilot may not have any proof of his or her flying experience.
Pilot Mall also offers digital flight log tools for iPad tablets. With digital flight logs, it's possible to quickly and easily log flight information. In addition, pilots can make instant backups of their digital flight logs to protect against loss.
