Welcome to our Interview Resources library. Please explore the files and download whatever you find useful. Note that files in Word format are fully editable and customizable. Most of our resources were generously donated by other pilots. To begin, we suggest downloading and reading “Logbook Best Practices for Airline Interviews.”
We suggest that you be transparent about any unresolved logbook discrepancies. This affidavit can be printed, signed and included in your logbook. It puts the interviewer on notice about the discrepancy. By carefully explaining the situation, in advance and on paper, you may avoid in person questions.
If a logbook was lost, stolen or destroyed, it is a good idea to draft an Affidavit to document the loss. Include this Affidavit with your logbooks presented at an interview. This document is in Word format and should be modified to suit your situation.
See our step-by-step instructions for converting your pilot logbook into a complete presentation package for an airline interview. This model has won many compliments from interviewers across the aviation world.
Congratulations!! You received an invitation to interview. What’s next? Put your best foot forward and stand out from the crowd.
If you are not transcribing each flight from your old logbooks, consider using the “bulk entry” method. This provides a cumulative logbook that is easier to review. We are providing a number of samples demonstrating how different pilots approached this problem. You determine the amount of granularity to include. When preparing for an interview, consider the hiring company’s interests. At a bare minimum, separate PIC and SIC time.
This Career Milestone table acts as a “Table of Contents” so that you can tab out your logbook. Choose this template if you have transcribed flight time from paper logbook entries, line-by-line, and your electronic logbook is complete and cumulative and complete. If you did a bulk entry “carry forward” of your time, see Example 2.

This is an excellent example of a comprehensive summary. Generously contributed by one of our creative pilots using CrewLounge software, he generated each summary, then assembled them into a single file for printing and inclusion in his logbook. (If you are using another software program, it will likely have similar reports).
This Flight Summary is a popular format for SWA interviews. It can be used in addition to other summary reports from your software program, or used by itself. Drop it under your Summaries tab in your logbook binder.
