The G1000 and Log Books
I attended the “ground school” at Toronto Airways for their latest aircraft that has the G1000 avionics installed.
This course is mandatory if you would like to get checked out in the aircraft. I would really like to take this new airplane on my commercial cross country to Sherbrooke, QC. Over the next coming weeks, I’m going to see if I can get checked out.
I keep two log books. One electronic and one paper. I decided to audit my paper log book for errors and found a few.
Most of them were due to time calculation errors (since the excel spreadsheet I use for the electronic version has better math skills than me.)
Here are two errors that I discovered:
1. I forgot to add time under the cross country column for a flight last August.
2. I put the wrong value down for a flight at night last October.
The total number of hours missing is about 2.3.
These log entries appear about 4 or 5 pages back from the current entry in the book.
How would you correct these errors? Strike out all entries for the past 6-8 months or so and start over? As far as I understand you aren’t allowed to use things like “white-out” to correct entries, and you must show all errors.
(BTW, for the user who commented about “updating my hours” it’s been done. As well, there is a date stamp to let you know when the last time it was updated)
