I was thinking the same thing. So I went to Continental's Website and booked a Q400 ride EWR-BUF and came out round trip with taxes to $550 US. That's more extensive that a charter to Europe.

I use excel and the paper logbook. The excel logbook spits out pages for me so I've been using that for the past year now. Paper is too prone to mistakes.

If you have all the money now, i.e. you're not going to work on it as paychecks come in, go to Cornwall. Rent a cheap room which they can arrange and get it done in a little over a week. The CFI is a DFTE.
