Unmanned Aircraft System / Drone Flight and Technical Journey Log (Army Green Edition) Also available in other colors on Amazon just search for "drone log pink," blue, red, green, yellow, black, orange, purple, maroon, tan, war eagle, or roll tide/ Complete Logbook and Technical Journey Log for the Professional or Hobbyist Drone UAS Pilot It is important for you to capture your flight hours and any maintenance activities you perform as part of your flight operations. Under the FAA Part 107 ruleset governing the use of commercial and recreational small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS), a component of pilot / aircraft operation is accurate recording of pilot flight hours and platform maintenance. This log book has been designed to facilitate your safe operation and assist you in following current AMA and FAA best practices. The Logbook is divided into two major sections: Flight Logs and Technical Journey Logs Flight Logs are primarily used to capture your plan, equipment, mission information, safety checks, flight conditions, and of course your actual flight hours. After each mission, you will total your flight hours and add previous mission flight hours, to obtain your rolling total airtime. Technical Journey Logs are primarily used to capture any flight anomalies, defects, or maintenance issues along with any corrective actions to resolve or mitigate the problem and return your aircraft to airworthiness standards. Logbook supports 175 flight Missions and 875 individual flights Technical Journey Log / Fault correction section with support for over 75 maintenance action records Detailed Instruction section provides instructions on how to properly fill out the log entries and how to document flights, and document aircraft platform maintenance FAA Considerations Section Helpful Online Resources Section
Federal Aviation Regulations, COA, & Section 333 Exemption Compliant. This logbook has been specifically designed to be compliant with 14 CFR 61.51, Section 333 exemptions, and COA logbook requirements. Easy COA Reporting. If you have MULTIPLE aircraft, this will NOT work. Buy one logbook for each drone. The FAA requires that commercial operators who have 333 exemptions and "blanket" COA's to file monthly reports. It is EXTREMELY annoying to log all this information and then send it in via email. If you have one drone per logbook, do not have any takeoff or landing damage, equipment malfunctions, or lost link events, you could simply make scans of the pages for the month and email them into the FAA. The COA's say, "number of flights (per location, per aircraft)" & "total aircraft operational hours[.]" The columns only support one aircraft; however, recreational flyers could list multiple aircraft because they are currently not required to report. Disclaimer: Current FAA "blanket" COAs say "must submit the following information" and do not explicitly say scans are acceptable. The FAA could issue guidance in the future further clarifying the mode of report (text in email vs. scan in email). It is up to YOU to keep up to date on this. The FAA or Law Enforcement Can Request Your Logbook. 14 C.F.R. § 61.51(i) says, "Persons must present their pilot certificate, medical certificate, logbook, or any other record required by this part for inspection upon a reasonable request by" the FAA, an authorized representative from the National Transportation Safety Board, or any Federal, State, or local law enforcement officer. If your electronic logbook is on your device, do you really want to give law enforcement or the FAA your device? Furthermore, how are you to get the data off that device? Insurance. When you apply for insurance, they will ask you to fill out a form that is going to ask for all sorts of information. A logbook will assist you in filling out the form so you can receive the most accurate quote. Marketing. Showing a completed logbook to a potential customer is a great marketing point. Like the old adage, "A picture is worth a thousand words," a good logbook is worth a thousand flights. You can quickly demonstrate your flight experience by flipping through the pages. Furthermore, a well-kept and orderly logbook gives the impression that you are a professional. Required in Other Countries. Other countries such as South Africa require the drone logbook to be in paper. Paper is the current industry standard. Going for a Certificate/Rating. Individuals can use this logbook to apply their experience towards UAS certificates / ratings. While the FAA is still working on creating certificates and ratings, you can prepare for the future by logging everything now. Less Cumbersome. If you are marketing to a potential client, you can scan pages of your logbook and send it to them. It is more cumbersome to get the data off a phone or website. Very Little Problems. What happens if your phone is stolen, water damaged, battery dies, or there is poor cell phone signal? Paper does not need a cell signal or batteries. No Data Theft. You don't have to worry about data theft like you would with a website or an app. Fidelity. Electronic logbooks can be changed while pen and paper is permanent.

The Standard UAS Operator Log provides record-keeping for flight operations of small and large unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), remote-control aircraft (R/C), remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), and drones. It meets the needs of civilian, military, hobbyists, and professional operators alike so that critical flight details can be tracked. The logbook has sufficient room for more than 300 flights with space to record the equipment details, location, aircraft category, flight conditions, type of operating time, number of takeoff/launch and landing/recovery, and the total duration of the flight. The remarks area provides space to note the mission, crew, control method (such as RC, first person view or RPV and autonomous), battery number and configuration or other information to correlate to the flight controller mission logs. It also includes a summary page for owner/operator (such as contact details, certificates and ratings, and recurrency training), a briefing/academic instruction log, a page for equipment and hours flown, and initial and recurrent training endorsements.

This ACS book from the FAA lists the standards and requirements for the Remote Pilot Certificate, issued for operating drones and small unmanned aircraft systems in the National Airspace System. The new Airman Certification Standards are ideal for checkride preparation, and will help applicants develop an understanding of how knowledge, risk management, and skill elements work together for safe performance of each required task they may be asked to perform during the checkride. For instructors, the ACS will serve as a guide for teaching and training an applicant everything they need to know for certification and safe operation within the National Airspace System. Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs) will use the ACS to assess an applicant's understanding, knowledge, risk management considerations, and performance of each task. As always, ASA delivers authentic, accurate, and reliable FAA documents exactly as provided by the FAA. One noticeable change is that the FAA has adapted the size and format of the ACS so that it lists everything an applicant needs to know, consider, and do in order to pass both the knowledge test and the practical test for a certificate or rating.
