Layout & Design
The log pages were designed to keep the traditional logging information, but also 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 the many columns that were relevant only to specific flights (i.e. instructor, cross country, float, etc.). 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/her. For example, cross country, float, turbine, jet, over 12500, landing/takeoffs, miles flown - the list up to you.

Most logbooks are machine bound with cloth, PATENT or GENUINE PATENT leather over cardboard. These were 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 hand 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 the 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.
