Traveling with kids can often be a challenging yet exciting experience. Naturally, you want to make the experience as special and as special as possible for your kids — and there are few better ways to do that than with their very own flight logbook to document the trip.

When my husband, Stefan, was younger, he had the opportunity to travel quite a bit with his family. Many times, they were flying to far off places, and he had a logbook of his own where the pilots and flight crew could write him a few notes and he could write down everything about his journey to remember it more clearly into the future. That logbook is long gone, but he still has many fond memories of it. And when we started traveling with Mackenzie a few years ago, he recalled that logbook fondly and wished we could find one for Mackenzie. We never managed to track one down — and then the Simply for Flying logbook found its way to us!


The Simply for Flying logbook lets you record flight details and experiences for each and every flight you take. On each journey, the Captain can record important flight log information, leave you a special message or you (or your kids) can enter your own notes. The Simply for Flying logbook has an easy handling size of 135x95mm to keep with other important travel documents. Just hand your logbook to one of the flight crew at the start of your journey so that the flight deck has ample time to complete it for you.

The Simply for Flying logbook features:

  • 42 flight log & journal entries
  • Similar size to a passport
  • Maps and conversion charts
  • Fun & colorful characters
  • Pocket for boarding passes


I really love the cute little bird characters that fill the pages of the logbook and the way that it’s laid out. All of the important info about your child (like name and address) are right up front in case it ever goes missing, and there’s a complete description of what to do with the book for any flight crew member who might not be familiar with the concept. At the back of the book you’ll find the special map and chart pages which you can use to teach your kids more about geography and time zones, as well as track the many places you’ve been around the globe. I assure you that your kids (or grandkids) are going to love this logbook and treasure the memories it holds for many years to come. We’re looking forward to giving one to Mackenzie soon when we take our first trip to London!
