Q. What is a Flight Logbook?
A. myflightlogbook™ is a passport-sized logbook that children can use on domestic and international flights. By keeping a logbook children can record flight details such as altitude and distance, and most importantly, they can receive their own special message from the Captain. By travelling at a young age, children can build confidence for their later years when they may travelling independently and with their own children . Q. How do I use a Flight Logbook?
A. Using your myflightlogbook is easy. Simply give it to a member of the cabin crew and ask if they would give it to the Captain to sign. Remember to take it with you on every flight, both domestic and international. Follow these steps to make it easy: 1. The best time to give your book to the crew is the moment you step into the plane, when the crew member checks your boarding pass. It is very likely to cockpit door will still be open at this time, so it’s by far the most convenient time for a crew member to pass it directly to the Captain. 2. If you miss this opportunity, you can pass it to a crew member after take-off, once the seatbelt signs have ben turned off. Be sure to avoid any meal or snack delivery time, as the crew will be busy at this time. 3. Remember to give it well before the plane starts to descend, as the crew can’t access the Captain during the descent. 4. The crew will return it to you at a suitable time. 5. Thank the crew for taking the time to pass on your book. A little appreciation goes a long way. Q. Are all Flight Captains happy to sign the logbooks?
A. While we can’t guarantee that every Captain will be willing to sign a logbook, we have always had a very positive response from the Captain and Crew when asked if they can sign the books.
Q. When might the book not be signed by the Captain?
A. If you have a flight of very short duration, the Captain may not have time to complete a detailed entry for your flight. In this case, it may be helpful to complete the information you know, such as ‘date’, ‘to’ and ‘from’ prior to giving it to the crew. It may also be suitable for the crew to write a message instead of the Captain.
If the plane has started to descend for landing, the crew may not be able to access the Captain. In this situation the crew may be able to complete your flight details and write a personal message on behalf of the Captain. Q. When is the best time to give the logbook to a crew member?
A. The best time to give your book to the crew is the moment you step into the plane, when the crew member checks your boarding pass. It is very likely the cockpit door will still be open at this time, so it’s by far the most convenient time for a crew member to pass it directly to the Captain.
Q. When should I not give the logbook to a crew member?
A. Avoid times when the crew will be busy with safety responsibilities prior to take off, or when they are delivering meals or snacks from the cart. The crew will be busy at these times.
Q. What flight details does the logbook record?
A. Date, Seat number, From, To, Airline, Flight Time, Flight Level, Distance, Aircraft type, Aircraft Registration Number, the Captain’s message, the Captain and First Officer’s signatures. On the opposite page, you can record your own Memorable Moments of the flight.
Each logbook also includes two, My Travel Experience summary pages, so you can tally the total distance your child has travelled across all flights. Each summary page tallys the distance traveled across all flights.
Q. Can I personalise my child’s logbook?
A. Yes. each logbook contains an introduction section in which you can attach a passport photo of your child and record details including their name, date of birth and birthplace.
Q. How do I ensure I don’t forget my child’s logbook when we fly?
