This page includes links to and documents that pilots or those training may find useful. They are provided as reference only and for study purposes, not for use as actual aircraft operating documents.
Forms Useful for Pilots and Instructors
Instructional Flight Record Form – Form to use when conducting instructional flight to track the flight, items completed, and print as a record for the instructor and the student. Form works in iPad and Adobe Reader PDF formats.
Instrument Proficiency Flight Record Form – Form to track and document an instrument proficiency check. Allows tracking of items, sat/unsat denotations, instructor and pilot signatures. Form works in iPad and Adobe Reader PDF formats. Includes the PTS information for IPC requirements.
Fillable 8710 Form – iPad and Adobe Reader form that allows the 8710 to filled out in the event that IACRA is not being used for a practical test.
Statement of US Ownership for FAA Aircraft Registry Form – A form that has fillable fields to use when registering an aircraft that confirms U.S. ownership. This form is becoming a required item with many aircraft registered under any corporate structure but is not a form that is provided by the FAA. This form contains all the requisite infromation that is needed when doing this filing currently.
Pilot Logbook Excel File – A robust Microsoft Excel pilot logbook template. If you aren’t using a software piece for this, it is a great alternative option. (I still use it).
