  • “I too hate subscription-based logbooks. The only one that is nice is LogTen, all the others are horrible or they require gymnastics to fill them properly. But LogTen has two HUGE problems: almost $150 per year and ONLY Mac & iOS. Sucks. After huge research and a lot of tryouts, the Excel logbook solution is the only one really cost-effective, fully customizable and really cross-platform. Nice job! ★★★★★
  • “Great Support! I needed help with the program a few days after I downloaded it. They were super fast at getting back to me and helping me with my issue! ★★★★★
    First Officer
  • “Thanks again for all the help. As I get deep into inputting my 25+ years of flying into the spreadsheet, I'm sure I'll have more questions. I really am impressed by your quick response time and great customer service, I'll be sure to make sure I relay that on for others to see. ★★★★★
