If you're career-bound, you'll want to use an e-logbook. Might as well start the data entry now.

But you'll need to keep paper books at least through all of your CFI ratings, so you have the history of all the endorsements, training, and checkrides. You don't have to keep any records of airline training.

If there's an FAR, or FAA legal interpretation, which clearly allows it, then it should be OK.

Even if it's not loggable, you can mention it on your resume... good conversation starter for the interview, and many folks on an interview panel will appreciate bush flying, seaplanes, ultralights, etc.

But since employers use total time as a key measure of experience, many would consider the use of ultralight time as a fraudulent attempt to "cut in line".
Thanks for the info. This is pretty much the way I was leaning towards. I'm waiting on an email back from my contact at the local FSDO to see what the people who really matter think about it but I'm pretty sure I already know the answer they are going to give.

The FAA doesn't care. You can log time any way you like, paper or otherwise. But you do need paper for instructional records and endorsements while earning ratings.
