Default logging time

A few questions about logging 121 time:

How do you separate rows in your paper logbook? A new row for each leg? Each aircraft? Each flight number?

When listing Aircraft ID do you use the flight number or N-number?

Also, I have some level d sim hours from the 121 training, was I supposed to log those in my personal logbook? instructor never mentioned anything about it, but from viewing this site it looks like i should/could have.

Thanks!

i have that little red flight log...i write down the flight number....ship number.....to/from then i put my Push/In times. In the blank boxes i put Block, IMC, Night, and approaches. I also put an Asterisk next to each leg i fly. Seems to work pretty well...i had a Captain show me that when i was a new hire.

I have one of those Jepp Professional Pilot's Logbook, do you transfer your times from the red book to your original logbook?

I print out a copy of my pairing when I start a trip and then keep track of the times on it as well as IMC, night, approaches and landings. Then, about once a month I transfer those to my big Jepp logbook. In the Jepp logbook I use one line for each day. If multiple aircraft or aircraft types were flown on one day, I list them sequentially in the tail number and type column and then in the to-from column I just list the whole days flying in one line. For example: IAH-MEM-EWR-YYZ. Then in the comments column I write the flight numbers and crew names and the pairing number. Has been working pretty well for me so far.

I use logbook pro along with the palm version of the airline pilot mobile software. I load the trips onto my palm before I go (takes about 2 minutes to do) and then sync it back with my computer when I get home and all the data is imputed into logbook pro. It even alerts you about rest and duty limits. I love it, and I would never go back. Most airlines are ok with you printing that out and bringing it to an interview instead of a traditional logbook. It is a little expensive (about $120 for both software programs plus the cost of the palm or windows mobile device), but I think it's well worth it in the long run.

hey if you didnt buy that little red book already (I actually have the black one with 10 legs instead of the 6 that the red comes with cuz I'm a turboprop slave) you should get it from outermarker.com... I found that their shipping is the cheapest if you're only going to get the logbook.. like $1.95.
personally i plan on transferring all the info from the little book to the real Jepp logbook, but I haven't done it since I got hired....... not looking forward to it!! I dont recommend doing this as it really piles up on you..!
and yes, definitely log that sim time, it's level D.

Just remember, if you log that sim time, it is for total SIM time not total FLIGHT time. It doesn't matter if it is level D or not, it is NOT considered flight time. The only thing it is good for is for currency.
