It seems to be. Looks to have potential, but I still like the Eaa site personally.

This makes me wonder if or how secure the EAA builder logs are. I've been doing a paper build log at the same time but that obviously won't have photos.

Just sent an email off to the EAA support site to see how they back up the builder log sites.

I don't know of any easy way to back it up on a computer or spare drive.

Anyone know??

Default EAA Backup

The EAA builder site has a way to download your entries to an excel document. I haven't done mine as yet so I don't know that much about it. The download tab is under "My Account". As an excel document, I doubt your pictures are included, but I keep copies of mine on both my phone, desktop and cloud backups so I'm good with that.

Edit: Out of curiosity, I just downloaded my project and thumbnails of the pics are included as well. I'm no expert in Excel, so I don't know if you can upsize them back to the original size or not.

I use a Google Spreadsheet with one row for each building session. Date, what I did, hours broken out by major section (empennage, wings, etc.), any Service Bulletins included in the work, and links to any pictures I took.

I also have other pages in the spreadsheet where I list deferred steps, budgets for avionics and other purchases, a circuit list, a fuse list, electrical load analysis, connector list showing all pinouts, and other information about the build that I might find useful later.

Happy to share a read-only link to it if anyoneís curious about how itís laid out. Just PM me with your Google account name.
