Default Paper vs Electronic Logs - majors

Hey y’all,
I had a question about logbooks and which do interviewers prefer?

Electronic logbooks look more professional, but what about signatures for ratings or dual given? Should you bring both electronic and written to your interview?

And what about training? Would you bring paper logs?

I had electronic (logten) that I printed out for the interview for civilian time plus a one page USAF summary report for reserve military flying. I guess it worked fine. People at my interview had both.


Not sure you meant by bringing one to training.

I don’t think at this level you need to worry about ‘dual rcv’d’ or wet signatures. You have your ATP and they’re going to know if you are fudging numbers during the interview.

Nothing for training.

Bring them to the interview. If you have both bring both. No need to wonder or worry that way.

Some people like to get the electronic version printed out and made into a binder think at kinko’s.

Just don’t use any logos on the binder. It wouldn’t be a big deal to normal humans, but I have seen a message from one stick-up-the ass airline that those logos are trademarked, proprietary, and blah and blah.....

Yeah. We all know the stick-up-the ass airline who would care about that.

The same ones who insist an Air Line is somehow super-duper better than an Airline.

Dark Charcoal Gray suit, Jerry Garcia tie.

Stand out in the crowd of blue pinstripe and red/yellow - conservatively and with class.
