Default Electronic Logbook

Do any of you use electronic logbooks for your flight time? If so, what do you use?

Searching the website yielded really old threads on the subject. I figure there's been advancement in recent years.

I use the log book feature with Foreflight. Prior to that, I used the one in Garmin Pilot. I know a few pilots who use My Flightbook and speak very highly about it. I hope that is helpful,
David

I use myflightbook.com and also have my students use it. Its very good especially for getting reports on ratings progress.

I use Safe Log and really like it. (www.safelogweb.com) I've been using it for many years. They have apps for your phone and tablet, and everything syncs to the website so you always stay up to date.

I just use an Excel spreadsheet, and keep my last paper logbook for BFR's and ratings. Has worked fine for the last 10 years.

I must be old fashioned when it comes to these things. In my house, I have installed internet connected thermostats, sprinklers, sound system, security systems, cameras, solar power generators, etc. I have a homemade 5 monitor flight simulator. I work for a company that uses various forms of AI for investment management. So, I'm not a luddite....

But for my log book, paper and only paper. I still enjoy writing down each flight and the time components. And 25 years from now, no matter what happens to all the hosted data companies, I will still have my fake leather bound books on the shelf.

Hey kids, get off my lawn.

Myflightbook.com will back up your logbook to an excel file nightly to your preferred cloud drive provider and all your endorsements are included in image files. Once every few months I back those files up to an offline hard drive. Not likely to be lost.

I use the paper logbook as my official record but input everything in ForeFlight as well so there's an electronic backup should something ever happen to the paper book. Might have to look into myflightbook.com

Another happy myflightbook.com user. I run the app on my phone while flying, and everything is tracked and backed up nightly. I have used it for years.
