Just because no one seems to talk about anything here anymore... I thought I'd bring up an under discussed logbook controversy.
Back when I was in flight school my flight instructor told me when filling out my logbook always be as neat as possible, never have a reason to strike anything, and always use the same high quality pen so your logbook looks nice and professional. For some reason it stuck and the vast majority of my entries are made with the same nice pen, with a few exceptions of course.
Anyway fast forward a few years and I have my first Huey job and I go to make my first logbook entry proudly with my good pen but I can't find the damn thing. Looking for it I mutter something to myself about needing THAT pen and my coworker with infinitely more experience, a lot of it involving hiring and firing people, offers up his bic and I politely turn it down and explain I need my pen. He responds "Don't do that! People will think you made up all your flight time if its in the same pen! It's a dead giveaway!"
So what do you all think? Do you view entries that look like they were made in one sitting with suspicion? Not that it really matters. In my career I have had my logbook looked at exactly once and oddly enough it was a really bad third world operation that wanted to verify my time (tuna boats).
