is a robust, feature-rich, cross-platform electronic logbook for pilots. It is user-friendly and intuitive, keeping the familiar look & feel of paper logbooks.
Your key logbook information is visible directly on the main logbook screen without having to drill through countless other screens or menus. The top half of the screen shows the most recent logbook entries -- just like your paper logbook. The lower section provides summary totals and currency information. The currency and date expirations are clearly color-coded to visually alert the pilot well in advance of expiration without the need for annoying pop-up windows.
New in Pilot eLog version 3 are 12 additional aircraft categories to log flight time against plus 6 user-defined categories. These new entries include Multi-Engine Land, Multi-Engine Center Line Thrust, Multi-Engine Sea, Single Engine Sea, Glider, Helicopter, Rotorcraft, Gyroplane, Airship, Free Balloon, Lighter-Than-Air and Second in Command. One or more of these features can be activated from within the Preferences screen. Also new with this release is the ability to export the logbook for custom analysis.
We've also added a new Military option to allow tracking of currency specific to Apache flight operations. Currency include Front Seat, Back Seat, Night Vision Systems, Night Vision Goggles and Hood time (this feature was added at the request of Apache flight crews).
Total flight time is recorded using either Hobbs Start/Stop time or as direct entry. Log entries incorporate extensive error checking to keep logs accurate. Accelerator keys make data entry fast and painless. The system automatically tracks Day, Night and Instrument currency and keeps this information visible on the main screen at all times. It also automatically captures High Performance, Complex and Tailwheel time based on the type of aircraft flown. Additionally, users can track time against unlimited custom parameters and type ratings, all while keeping the user interface simple and user friendly.
Pilots can begin their logbooks from any point in time, record historical totals, then begin using Pilot eLog from that point forward. Recording a new endorsement, rating or BFR check ride automatically updates the BFR expiration information. Other features include 17 professionally designed reports and endorsements, complete text to many logbook-related FAR's, links to both the FAA and FAR reference sites, and immediate viewing of day, night and instrument currency plus BFR and medical expiration dates.
For security, logbook data is stored locally on the pilot’s computer, not someone else’s server. Built-in backup and restore functions ensure long-term data integrity.
