INSTRUMENTS FLIGHT PLANNING
A jet log is a preflight planning document that helps you in fuel planning and familiarizes you
with the route to be flown. A flight seldom progresses as it is planned. However, a jet log used
in the proper context aids you in making decisions affecting your fuel, distance, altitude, etc., to
allow you to arrive at your destination with minimum problems. Additionally, it is a valuable
tool, if properly maintained, for extracting information requested by ATC centers during flight.
