Congratulations! The first job is the hardest one to get!


I wish someone had suggested to me, what I am about to suggest to you. Take lots of pictures.... then add the special ones into your log book. 30 years later... you'll be glad you did.


I started 10+ years ago after seeing the logbook of one of my peers, and now my log book is a joy to 'read'. I've included small stories with the pictures, and it's not unusual for one of my kids to pick it up and read it! It's a wonderful keepsake.


In the world of electronic log books, it won't hurt to keep a hardcopy book with lots of pics of aircraft, people, situations and so on. I promise you.. you won't regret it! My only regret is that I didn't start doing it in 1972 when I started this wonderful career!

Good idea on the logbook pictures Batman. I was fortunate to see someone doing that when I started in this business in the late 70's (it was "squeaky" I think?) and I have put pictures in all of my logbooks ever since, (3 full sized books so far).

I was getting a TC endorsement once, and was worried about what they may say when viewing my log....the Inspector loved it !
