How many hours do you have? One of the biggest factors that makes up a pilot's experience level is the number of flight hours they have. It's not quite like a business, who might be judged by how many years they've been in business. After a flight, recording an hour or so in the logbook is like making an investment.


Flying can, after all, be costly. For most pilots, building hours in the logbook is a means to an end. As a student pilot, having your instructor sign your logbook allows you to fly solo. Then getting 40 hours means the legal minimum for obtaining your license has been achieved. After that, building 50 hours of cross country time is one of the requirements to obtain an instrument rating. 250 total hours are required to become a commercial pilot. Then to get hired as a pilot with an airline requires at least 1500 hours. Where is all that time recorded? In the logbook.
