Logbooks - Prepare for your future!
Now, more than ever, pilots need to prepare for the unexpected and the future. The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged the commercial aviation industry. Companies are closing their doors. Many pilots are grounded and hiring has nearly halted (apart from cargo and Part 135 operations). The pool of candidates will soon be vast compared to the positions available.
Due to the likelihood of a slow recovery, taking the time to prepare and audit your logbooks now is a great way to set yourself apart as a more competitive and polished applicant. Even if you have good seniority and feel safe in your current position, do not get complacent -- the industry is extremely volatile. In the event of a job loss or furlough, avoid the stress of scrambling last minute to prepare your logbooks and employment applications. Be ready for when that narrow hiring window opens.
The digital logbook age is here. Software programs now have advanced calculation features that can eliminate mathematical errors commonly found in paper logbook audits. Programs also give pilots the ability to quickly generate and print sophisticated reports and summaries that will impress interviewers.
