I purchased the Excel pilot logbook to convert my paper logbooks to electronic versions. This was the best product for my needs and works great. ★★★★★


“Excel”lent product! So far, it’s been very user-friendly and simple. I’m early in the process of transferring my paper logs, but I think it will turn out great! ★★★★★

I’m a student pilot planning my cross countries, and the sheet has been very helpful. Thank you! ★★★★★

Student Pilot

Compared to the other solutions out there, what you offer is simple, intutitive, and not overly complicated. Plus, I use excel a lot so it’s a natural extension of my own skills★★★★★

Both versions for the Mac are great, Numbers have the extra benefit of being a free download from Apple. Thanks

First Officer

Had an issue with IFR currency on the dashboard, it was fixed in minutes! Great service and an excellent program. ★★★★★

CRJ-200 FO

Great Product. I had a question regarding the formatting of the spreadsheet, and within minutes, I had an answer from the support team. ★★★★★

Corporate Pilot

Great product, easy to use, and well thought out. ★★★★★

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. ★★★★★


Great product with great support when needed to sort any issues, highly recommend to fellow pilots. ★★★★★

AS350 Pilot

I switched to this from some of the more expensive app-based electronic logbooks that require subscriptions and have never looked back. It’s brilliant! ★★★★★

A320 First Officer

Your logbook is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to stay clear of LogTen Pro and was planning on making something myself in Excel. I’m reasonably competent at it but when googling for ideas on how to format it all I found your option, which made my life easier and seems well worth the $$. ★★★★★

PC-12 Pilot

I was a satisfied Safelog customer for years but quit using their product in 2014 when they changed from device-based software to a Cloud-based system. Due to security concerns, I refuse to allow my personal information and data to be stored on or accessed by the Cloud, so I looked elsewhere for logbook software. Your Excel-based logbook is one of the few PC/device-based alternatives available in today’s Cloud Obsessed market. Thanks ★★★★


Love this product! I have been looking for a simple, but well thought out electronic logbook and this is it! I like the Excel format and data entry is very easy. In my opinion, it doesn’t get better. ★★★★★

Private Pilot

This is an elegant, practical, and clearly-readable spreadsheet that is extraordinarily useful for pilots of all levels. Max clearly knows both Excel and flying, and it shows. Highly recommended. ★★★★★

Student Pilot

Great product, perfect format. Easy to use and modify to suit all your tailored needs. ★★★★★

Air Ambulance Pilot

The easiest-to-use computer-based logbook that I have come across. Excel Pilot Logbook is by far the best out there and considering how cheap it is, well worth it. ★★★★★

Flight Instructor

Plenty of customizable features and very handy functions that I use on a daily basis. After numerous searches and wasted time online trying to find something useful, this one is a winner. ★★★★★

Second Officer

Perfect! Thank you again, can’t think of any way to improve on it. It definitely meets my needs. ★★★★★

US Army Pilot

I have flight time in both NZ and Australia so, I am using your CASA logbook to record ICUS properly. I find the logbook easy to use and well presented. Great product all in all! Cheers ★★★★

Floatplane Pilot

Just a note to let you know your spreadsheet is GREAT! I’m working with it in Open Office and have been able to customize the cells to make the program/spreadsheet perfect for my use. Thanks for developing this great tool! ★★★★★

Retired Bush Pilot

It’s so easy to use. You can smash through weeks of updates in no time, even if you don’t know how to use Excel! Love it ★★★★★

Q400 Captain

Very good logbook. Easy entry of data and a friendly user interface. Very well done. ★★★★

Private Pilot

Simple and easy to use log book. It does all the add-ups in a simple spreadsheet providing immediate totals. Great as a back up for the ‘official’ log book. ★★★★★

Aircraft Owner

Amazing product for the cost. Only critique I would add would be the ease of adding new custom columns to the spreadsheet for Mac users. I downloaded my spreadsheet in 2016 so maybe the fix has been done but that is my only gripe.. AMAZING PRODUCT ★★★★

Flight Instructor

This product is great value for the money! One suggestion I have is to add a coversheet tab containing pilot name, licenses, ratings and certificate numbers, etc. This way a complete summary report could be printed with ease. ★★★★★

Student Pilot

I switched from LogtenPro (didn’t like how expensive the yearly subscription was) to this and love it. Westjet Airline Pilot, B-737 Canada. ★★★★★

B737 First Officer

So far, it is the best spreadsheet I have ever seen. I made a few changes to the spreadsheet, so it feels like a real logbook. I froze the top header and the first column so that it is easier to see and manipulate the spreadsheet (as per your tip). I think it was a well-spent $50.00. Thanks ★★★★

Charter Pilot

This logbook is a great idea for your increasingly digital life. ★★★★

Private Pilot

It’s perfect. I didn’t want anything complex with a lot of drop-down menus and preset way of organizing things. This logbook is an excellently organized and simple solution to organizing my hours. I always know what I have. Exactly what I was looking for. ★★★★★


I really like the customization capability of it, as many pilots keep track of additional pertinent flight information specific to their occupations. Great job! ★★★★★

First Officer

I have tried a few other electronic logbooks and, honestly, all of them have problems, in my opinion. I definitely appreciate your customer service which is about the best I’ve ever experienced. Thank you ★★★★★


Excellent customer service. ★★★★★

Charter Pilot

I’m an Apache Helicopter flight instructor and this is perfect. Thanks for your work! ★★★★★

Military Pilot

Thank you so much Max, it looks great! Amazing customer service too, I will highly recommend! ★★★★★

Charter Pilot

This is by far the best solution out there for new-generation professional pilots who want to want to keep an electronic logbook. You can stay up to date across all mobile or computer devices using selected cloud services. I love being able to access my logbook anywhere just through Excel and have it sync automatically. I came from Logten Pro and this much easier to use, as well as being cost-effective. Highly recommended. ★★★★★


For the last 5 years I have been logging using an excel spreadsheet that I created myself but it doesn’t have the formulas to keep track on currency, duty time etc. Thank you for your help. ★★★★

A320 Captain

Thank you for your help, been using the product over a year now and love it. ★★★★★

First Officer

A nifty application that does what it says on the tin! ★★★★★


Great tool, easy to modulate to fit my needs. ★★★★★

Private Pilot

The product is amazing, great layout and simple to use, I’m really enjoying using it. ★★★★★

C208 FO, Indonesia

So easy to use. Great Dashboard for quick reference to important data. ★★★★★

Flight Instructor, NZ

What I like in Excel Pilot Logbook is its’ simplicity, clarity and easy-to-follow currency. If I would have to make a choice or recommendation to any flying friend I would certainly recommend Excel Pilot Logbook. Keep up the good work! ★★★★★

Cirrus SR22 Pilot

I purchased this logbook the other day and have spent the last few days filling in about 10 years worth of logs. Love the sheet. Works really well. ★★★★★
