Default Electronic Logbooks

How are the regionals looking at electronic logbooks at interview? If they are printed out nicely do they still want the original logbooks? Do they prefer them electronically printed out?

I brought both printed and original logbooks. The hiring guys didn't even look at the original logbook.

I think it depends on the airline. The airline applied at last year said I could bring my electronic logbook but they wanted the original paper logbook with all the signed endorsements and checkrides.

I just interviewed at a fractional carrier and brought my printed electronic Logbook Pro. It wasn't an issue at all and looks damn good.

Best way to print LG Pro is go to Staples. Mine cost $45 to get printed and bound. Looks great and took maybe 20 mins total.

I'm in the process of converting all my pen and paper into electronic. After seeing how nice a professionally bound electronic logbook looks, I'm embarrassed I ever showed up to an interview with my old ones. Just curious, you guys have who have been around 121 for a while, how do you log? You log leg by leg, day by day , or just monthly. Anytime I mention I leg by leg log I get crazy looks.

I just log each day. TT, SIC, night, and approaches flown by me. Basically anything the airline apps wants.

Does anyone log 'actual instrument'? Why airlineapps would care is beyond me.

For those of you that use Logten pro, were you able to somehow get your "special columns" to print as well? Such as turbine PIC etc or whatever special column you added? When I went to print mine out at Kinko's it only printed out all of the normal columns.

Choose a different report. I used the Jeppesen Pro Pilot for my interview, and while it didnt include TPIC, it did include Turbine/Jet time in its own column. If you want it to show some custom columns youve made, use the dynamic reports under "general". It's no frills and plain, but mirrors exactly what you see on your computer. If that's still not right, email coradine, ive generally heard back from within 2 business days with helpful responses.

Fwiw i also brought my ipad to my interview (tucked away if course) in the case they wanted to know some addl times... ie pic night, lca, etc.
