Concerning FAR 61.189
I am curious and would like to hear back ideas how to keep flight instructor records. I am considering creating an excel sheet with the required information such as the student name's, date of the endorsement, kind of test, the date and the result, etc. I think it would be helpful to have all of this information is in one place.
I'm a new Flight Instructor and inexperienced keeping these kind of records. Surely there is an efficient easy way to keep track.
Thank you for your suggestions and sharing how you keep your records.
