How it all began
In 2014 Allie Langton began the myflightlogbook™ adventure after flying from Cairns to Christchurch with her husband and 6 month old daughter.
“As young children in the 1970s, my sister and I were given Air New Zealand Logbooks which recorded flight details of our first round the world trip. I thought I would buy something similar for our daughter’s first flights, so she had a momento of the trip even though she was too young to remember it”.
Unable to find a child’s flight logbook in any store, a hastily bought notebook was quickly transformed into a logbook with a few stickers and hand-written page headings.
“Once back home, I saw the opportunity to create something myself and so began my “nap-time” myflightlogbook project”. Combining a passion for graphic design, marketing and parenting, the myflightlogbook project quickly grew into a genuine desire to help parents feel relaxed about taking their first flight with a child or baby.
Launched in 2017, the logbooks are printed in Heathcote by Spectrum Print (on FSC certified paper) and bound by local Christchurch bookbinders, McHargs, Web design is provided by Meltec Design (Father-in-law, Graham Langton) based in Rangiora. Proudly New Zealand made, every myflightlogbook purchase helps support the livelihood of local people and businesses.
