Q: What do I risk if my records are still on paper?

A: There are many good reasons to manage your flights in digital form.

  1. Paper logbooks are prone to loss by theft, fire, carelessness, flood and other causes.
  2. Paper logbooks almost always contain summation errors, since it is statistically almost impossible to correctly total page after page manually, no matter how careful you are.
  3. Paper logbooks are a pain to use when you need to total PIC time, night time, complex time, multi-engine time, or any of thousands of other combinations of parameters.
  4. Keeping records on paper is a manual process that costs you valuable time.
  5. Flight times, airports and remarks entered in paper logbooks are often illegible, even if you originally entered them yourself!

Q: Can I record my flights in digital form (online) only?

A: Every pilot is obliged to carry a hardcopy of his myControl.aero as evidence of his aeronautical activities. You need to export and print out your flights from myControl.aero. You can do that easily under the Section “Flights” -> Export to PDF.
