Does anyone have experience with the electronic ones available?
I don't really want to pay a lot so another option is to just build a spreadsheet myself.
Comments and ideas welcome, thanks!
Depends on where you are in your career and how sentimental you are to some extent. I have about 5 or 6 paper logs books, which may somewhat be attributed to my love of books, but as I finished off the last one I finally decided that it was just so much easier to keep a spreadsheet. I use a different sheet per year, and in each sheet divide it up by months. I also then use a master sheet where I can summarize my flying based on month and year just to see where the trends are and if I'm flying more or less in any given year. Not that it really matters, but I am nothing if not an exceptionally anal numbers gal
If you're at the stage where you need to have hours certified by a school or anything, you should probably stay with the paper logbook for at bit longer
That said, once I've filled the first logbook, starting a second won't be so exciting, so I might go electronic then.
