We support a wide variety of tools in both general and business aviation sectors. Flight schools, clubs and groups with reservation systems as well as professional airline and operators software platforms.
Am I allowed to keep my record in digital format only?
Yes, if you go for the right one.
As a pilot with a licence issued by a EASA member state, you have to comply with AMC Part-FCL No 1178/2011 (Air Crew).
There are official standards which have been assessed by EASA and build upon Issue 1, Amendment 9 of AMC and GM to Part-FCL from March 18th, 2020. These standards define requirements for digital pilot logbooks to be acceptable by the competent authority such as data integrity, protection and location.
As of today (9/1/2023), there is only one software platform that meets these standards: capzlog.aero.

My employer (airline / operator) keeps my pilot logbook, is this fine?
Yes, it is allowed.
However, we strongly recommend to keep an own flight and FSTD record with your personal experience.
