Introducing ForeFlight Logbook
Logbook integrates seamlessly with the rest of the ForeFlight app to make flight logging easier than ever. With advanced features like automatic entries from Track Logs, encrypted instructor signatures and endorsements, real-time syncing across all your devices, and automatic backups to the ForeFlight Cloud, keeping a digital logbook is simple, efficient and secure.
Logbook Photos and More
ForeFlight Logbook allows you to save memories of flights by attaching unlimited photos to flight entries, aircraft profiles, certificates, and endorsements. Use photos to capture the view on approach to the runway, keep a visual record of squawks, or take a selfie of you and your passengers. Also export an FAA 8710 report to serve as a guide for filling out your Airman Certificate/Rating Application, and track your medical certificates, knowledge tests, and aircraft type ratings.
Smart Logbook Photos

ForeFlight’s Logbook can automatically suggest photos that you took during a flight so you can quickly review and add them to new Logbook entries.

Instructor Tools - Remote Endorsements

ForeFlight Logbook allows flight instructors to save their information and easily issue and track student endorsements using the Instructor Tools feature.

Logbook Currency Details
Tap on any Currency Summary in ForeFlight Logbook to see detailed information about your progress towards that currency. In the Currency Detail view, the top section shows your progress towards satisfying currency as well as a short description of the FAA requirements for that currency type. Beneath that is a list of all the flights that contribute to currency, followed by a list of all the flights that do not contribute, but which fall within the currency's timeframe, such as 90 days for general VFR currency, and 6 months for IFR currency. This organization makes it easy to see how your flights affect currency, and allows you to easily track down and fix errors in flight entries that should contribute to currency.
Logbook CFI Currency & Aircraft Details

ForeFlight Logbook now supports currency tracking for CFIs, and provides helpful at-a-glance information in the Logbook Aircraft list.

Logbook Aircraft Profile Helper
Complete aircraft profile information is critical to accurate flight currency reporting - ForeFlight Logbook highlights missing information to help your currencies stay on track. If you add an aircraft with missing details to a flight, a warning symbol appears in your currency detail views. Tap on it to see which aircraft need attention and to add the missing information. ForeFlight highlights the relevant fields so you can quickly resolve the issue and get your currency reporting back on track.
Logbook Detail Reports

ForeFlight now supports exporting your entire digital logbook in a traditional logbook format, which you can then print for sharing, gifting, or storing for your records. The new format is available in the Logbook Reports tab, along with the experience and progress reports. Two options are available - condensed and complete.

A common difficulty you may experience when trying to print Logbook detail reports on double-sided pages is that the text on either side of each page is flipped. This is caused by the printer’s binding settings - the default for most printers is long-edge binding, while the detail reports require that short-edge binding be used. This video demonstrates how to change this setting using Adobe Acrobat, but the process may be different based on what printer and program you use.

Helpful Logbook Features
ForeFlight Logbook streamlines your flight logging with intelligent data entry and support for currency-tracking for multiple aircraft types.
Logbook Import
This video walks through the process of transferring data from an exported logbook to the ForeFlight Logbook spreadsheet template, and then uploading that to ForeFlight Web. We recommend this method for anyone with a digital logbook so they can have the easiest upload experience.
LogTen Pro Export
This video walks you through the process of exporting your data from LogTen Pro X so you can import it to ForeFlight Logbook.
