    I started flying again after decades, and began using my old logbook, but then I built a simple spreadsheet. I keep it on a cloud drive to make sure I can access it from most anywhere.

    Does anyone have a simple and free, elegant solution?

    What's wrong with the cloud spreadsheet? That's what I use.

    I second that. It has plenty of great and useful features, it is made for pilots with pilots in mind.

    Nothing if you're happy with it. I would email it to yourself periodically for backup.

    Just remember if you only have electronic copies in one “place” they can go away. You know nothing of the cloud providers backup implementation. That’s why I periodically export mine from MyFlightbook as a csv file and email it to myself. I do keep paper but no way I want to type all that In again.

    Me too. I had been using an Access database I originally wrote in a DOS program (to give you an idea how long I'd been doing an eLogj but switched to MyFlightBook. I contribute, which gives me daily automatic backups.
