ForPilots Logbook is a computerized logbook program designed to let you make an electronic version of your aviation logbook. The advantages of an electronic logbook to the average pilot are numerous: a computerized logbook is easy to maintain and update, features advanced statists, charting, graphs, and helpful wizards. You will always know what your flight time is without having to dig out a calculator and add up all those columns by hand. Print out a hardcopy whenever you need to.
ForPilots Logbook is designed to be very intuitive, with an interface that mimicks a traditional paper logbook. The logbook screen has the same columns as your paper logbook, and you can type directly into the columns. There are also a wealth of useful wizards that can guide you through the process of adding new flights, aircraft and makes and models to the logbook.
If you are looking for more information, then we recommend having a look at the ForPilots Logbook User Manual as it contains many illustrations of the logbook and the various features in use. ForPilots logbook can be downloaded and evaluated for free, so we encourage you to download it, try it out, play with the features, ask questions if you need to, and then only purchase if it suits your needs.

The paper version makes an excellent backup, is good for showing off to CFIs and employers, and there is a nostalgic value in seeing your paper logbook filled out in actual ink. The electronic version has the advantages of having all of the statistical features, automatic calculation of columns and currency, plenty of room for entering notes and creating custom columns, etc. Of course, the ultimate choice is up to you, and we have had some users that do away with their paper logbooks entirely.
