    Same deal here. Plenty of errors in my logbooks. I've used white out, lines, x's, etc, and still got hired.

    I highly doubt anyone will be interested in how many landings you have, as long as you are current. I don't log them anymore. I also stopped logging instrument approaches, plenty of IMC time, etc. It's just too much gook to keep track of.

    Don't sweat it. Most interviewers glance at the entries anyway. Being neat on them is much more important in my opinion. Errors are fine, just be able to explain them if need be. They certainly won't be a deal breaker at an interview.

    That's a relief. I guess if any doubt ever came up they could also check my CFI's logbooks, all of my time is dual time. Once again thanks Joe and AJ.

    My first logbook was a mess, including correction fluid and addition errors. It hasn;t bothered any employer or CASA though...they seem to like Chuck Yeager's autograph on the inside front cover!

    As long as you have not fabricated information you should have no issues.

    eh, dont worry about it, you'll have plenty more pages to make it right. They'll probably be more interested in your advanced training than your PPl anyway. If there's any questions, just be up front about them.

Since I only have about 5 pages filled out, would I be better off just buying a new logbook, filling out the dates, hours, etc, then having my cfi sign it again where he signed it the first time? I'm kinda worried about this now.
    eh, I'd just correct them as you have been and keep the current log book. Just be a little more careful. I dont think an airline is going to be extra critical about how your first few pages look. Another thing to mention, its not a deal breaker, but try to use only one color of ink for the logbook (probably black) just looks a little more organized.

    No, it sounds like you did the right thing Jordan. Everyone makes errors at some time or another, what I usually do is draw a line through the number (so that you can still see the old one) and write the new one next to it. That way, if there are ever any questions, they can see what the error was and why it was corrected. A good way to avoid this is whenever you are totaling up a page, I do those in pencil.

    CFI's should make an effort to fill out logbooks legibly, but as long as you know who it was that signed it, and what the pertainent remarks are, I dont think it will matter too much. Its not exactly your fault that your CFI has crappy handwriting.

    started a topic Logbook question.

    Logbook question.

    Well a while back when adding up totals in my logbook I made a few small errors and accidentally wrote down the wrong page totals on a few pages. I put an X over the wrong numbers and wrote in the correct hours next to it (on the white space on the page, NOT in any of the other boxes). My question is, will this come back to haunt me later. Will the airlines or the FAA be suspicious of me or anything because of this? I think I'm being kind of paranoid, and I couldn't see why this would be a problem but I was wandering. Also, my CFI's handwriting is really hard to read in the log book. Will this matter?
