Please note, this logbook can not be embossed.
Most logbook are bound from cloth over cardboard or from PATENT or GENUINE PATENT leather. Both are poor substitutes for what we were looking for. In fact, those GENUINE PATENT leathers are simply extremely thin ‘paper’ leather glued onto cardboard.
Our logbook is bound from true leather by a bookbinder trained in the English traditions of bookbinding. It is SMYTH SEWN and stitched to last, literally, centuries. The spine will not crack, the cover will not twist and the pages will not pull out.
Printed on 80lb Williamsburg Offset white paper ink will not run and will not show through to the opposite side. Acid free, the paper is designed to last as long as the book itself.
The log pages were designed to keep the tradition logging information but to provide more flexibility. Our log has the customary Date, Aircraft, Pilots, Route and Remarks sections. The first change you will notice is the removal of many of the columns that were useful only for specific flight (i.e.instructor, cross country, float). The Single Engine, Multi Engine and Instrument columns are all still there, however, the last 5 columns are now blank. They allow the pilot to log what is important to him: crosscountry, float, turbine, jet, over 12500, landing/takeoffs, miles flown -the list is endless.
Each page is 8.5 by 9 inches and allows for 20 entries.
Our logbook also has pages for logging aircraft flown, type ratings, recency and proficiency requirements as well as having a 10 year summery section.
