how do I log the time on my logbook..

I know i have to put the type of a/c and everything but my problem

is converting the flown time into  the log time

for example 1:30 clock time is 1.5 right?

how would it be 1:10? or 1:55 ?

or how much would be 0.8 in your logbook for clock time?

    Here is a handy time conversion from minutes to tenths:

    0-3: .0
    4-9: .1
    10-15: .2
    16-21: .3
    22-27: .4
    28-33: .5
    34-39: .6
    40-45: .7
    46-51: .8
    52-57: .9
    58-60: 1.0

    We keep a little cheat sheet in the front of our aircraft logs for handy reference. You might want to print this out and do the same in your logbook (although most people just use the hobbs meter which is in tenths anyhow)

    Or if you have a calculator handy just divide the extra minutes by 60. Lets say you flew 3 hours and 40 minutes: 40/60 = .66 and averaging it comes out to .7 + the original 3 hours = 3.7 hours.
