Paramotor Pilot’s Logbook and Pre-Flight Check Book
This logbook is intended for use by all paramotorists, from beginner to advanced pilots. It has been created to give you a way of keeping track of important flight information that will keep you safe, help you progress in the sport, and serve as a useful future resource. Scroll down to learn more.
You can personalise the book by adding your name, address, phone number, and a photo. This way you’re more likely to get the logbook back if it’s ever misplaced.
You can add your insurance details, and keep a track of when your renewal is due. You can also keep a record of your wing inspections and reserve repacks, which handy for knowing when they’re due, or for when you wish to sell your wing.
Before each flight you can use the pre-flight checklist to ensure all important checks are carried out, and you can tick off each check that is done. After your flight, there is also a post flight-checklist to complete and tick.
You can enter the number of minutes, or hours you have flown. This will help you to keep track of when your service and maintenance schedule is due.
You can also tally up your hours in the notes section, this way you can keep a record of the total number of hours you have flown as a pilot. Knowing this may be important for future endeavours, like competitions for example, when the organisers will ask about your past flying experience. You can keep a record of the equipment you have been flying. This is really useful if you fly more than one paramotor or wing, as keeping track of the number of hours they have flown is important.
You’ll be able to log the takeoff and landing location, and take launch and landing notes, and flight notes. Notes that pilots regularly add here usually include areas to avoid flying over, dangers on the ground (like power lines or rotor), unusual turbulence they’ve experienced, or equipment concerns that need addressing.There’s even an important post flight inspection reminder that you can tick when it has been completed.
Finally, you’ll find multiple notes pages in the back of the logbook. This is where you can jot down anything of importance. Pilots regularly use this section for their kit checklist to ensure nothing gets left at the field, but it can be used for just about anything you like.
It’s recommended that you take this logbook along to every flight, and be sure to staple your insurance and any other important documents inside the cover.
