Default Do employers want paper log books?

Throughout my flying as a CFI I have only been digitally logging my hours on ForeFlight. All dual received was put on paper however, including all endorsements. I am wondering if any employer would want to see all of my hours on paper? Im about 750hrs behind.

At a bare minimum, print out your elogbook and have it bound nicely. They will want hardcopy they can review. That may change someday, but unless they specifically tell you to just bring a USB stick, I'd show up with hardcopy.

I'd also bring your original paper logbook with all of your dual-received signatures and training endorsements. You can probably get away going forward with only logging things which require signature. That gives them a warm fuzzy about the authenticity of your time, and they may also use that as insight into how detail-oriented you are.

I keep my paper book up to date, but I only log GA. Every year I make a single entry to cover all 121 time for the previous year. That way it all adds up. If I switch airplanes, I'll have two 121 entries.
