Airlines are using sophisticated rostering systems to keep records of the flight and duty times for both Flight and Cabin crew. Aviation regulations require only pilots to log their flight experience in a logbook in order to maintain their licence and ratings. This requirement is not applicable for flight attendants and thus they never had a flight logbook. By searching the web for cabin crew logbooks you can rarely find any results.
A flight logbook though is a lot more than complying with licencing regulations. By logging your flight experience you can see various flying statistics,like totals times, the aircraft types you have flown, aerodromes and cities you have visited, friends you have flown and most importantly recall memories form past flights. At LOGBOOKAIR we believe that Flight Attendants deserve a cabin crew logbook as pilots do.
One of our electronic services is to use excel files from various airline rostering systems in order to automatically generate a pilot logbook in PDF ready to be printed and binded. We have modified the regulated logbook format to keep only the columns that are needed for logging the cabin crew flight experience.
Our Cabin Crew Logbook is now a reality! The Perfect way to Preserve your Experience!

Store and Present your Electronic flight Logbook into a Professional Pilot Logbook or Binder.
A lot of Pilots use various electronic logbook software to store their flights. These software usually give you the option to generate and export flight records into PDF files that comply with the standards and layouts from JAA, EASA, FAA and many other civil aviation authorities. These files are suitable for printing in order to be used when applying for new license ratings or to attend a job interview.

The Logbook binding process is handmade by a professional and certified Bookbinder.
In order to provide a high quality hardcover binding the printed sheets of paper are cut to the appropriate logbook size and then glued and sewn together at the spine to form a long-lasting text-block. This text-block is then attached to the logbook cover.
The Hard cover is then prepared according to the Pilot’s favorite color and size.
The Pilot’s full-name and license number are then imprinted on the Hard-cover with Silver or Gold Letters giving a completely customized logbook or binder solution. It is also possible for large logbook or binder orders to stamp the company’s logo.
The final stage of our logbook binding process is to bind together the logbook cover with the text block.
At Logbookair for our printing service we use a special A4 short-grain direction 100g/m² paper. This paper is optimum for printing, writing and most importantly for hard-bound logbooks. If you wish to change the dimensions of your logbook we have the equipment to professionally cut the paper at the size of your choice and provide you with the option of selecting both color or black & white printing.
Choosing Between Color or Black & White Logbook Printing
Usually the logbook pages are in black & white and thus color printing will unnecessarily increase printing cost. It’s a good technique to print with color only the pages with your flight summaries and statistics that will be included in the beginning or at the end of your logbook.
With this technique you can further enhance the professional look of your logbook without incurring extra costs for color printing all your PDF file.
When selecting our logbook products you have the option for color printing the first pages of your logbook that might include a logo or statistics from your flying records and the rest of the pages in black and white.
Another important factor for printing is to use the appropriate paper type.
Printing paper in the market has various sizes, brightness, coating, grain direction and weights. It is important to select the right paper that will be appropriate for logbook printing. It should give to your logbook a professional look and feel, allow for double side printing and facilitate writing either for pilot signatures or for getting stamps and signatures from your airline usually on the last 3 logbook pages.
If you decide to Hard Bound your printed logbook in order to have the same quality with the traditional jeppesen hand written logbook then it is essential that the paper has the right grain direction. Most commercial A4 sheets have fibres that run parallel with the longer dimension of the sheet(Long Grain Paper). If this paper is used for printing then the Hard-Bound process will probably not work and might fail with time
If you use the Wrong grain direction for Hard Bound Logbook Binding you could encounter any or all of these problems:
