Lost log book how to credit hours

Asked by: 3918 views FAA Regulations

I got my License in 1984 but I lost my log book. How many "base" hours can I legally claim. I'm assuming the minimum listed in the FAR at that time to receive a license. Any idea where to find past FAR/AIM books?

    I would first get a copy of your 8710 application from the FAA.  Those hours are “verified” by the examiner when you took your last practical test.  You can legally use those hours as the basis for your new logbook.  Other way if you own an airplane is to calculate the number of hours per year (based on the annual) you flew and place that in there.
    Lastly, if you can remember the CFI’s you flew with, they will have exact hours you flew with them.
    FAR/AIM’s back to 1996 are posted on the ECFR website.  Looking for Title 14.
