Good, but could be better

It’s a bit convoluted at the moment. It’s hard to say whether it’s the fault of how overly complicated part 117 regulations are, or whether it’s the design of the app. Right now, it’s pretty difficult to just come up with a simple latest wheels up time. Also, the section to keep track of pay is of no use, since it has been horribly inaccurate for me. As a portable log book though, once I finally figured out how to sync with logbook pro, it works really well. If they come up with an easy button to sync with Logbook pro, it’ll be perfect for me.

The other bells and whistles are nice, but it’s almost trying to do too much. It’s a bit of a Jack of all trades, master of none situation. If I’m getting close to my drop dead time, I end up wasting so much time trying to interpret what this app is telling me so I usually just give up and use the ALPA 117 calculator instead. A lot of that could probably be solved by reading up or browsing the forums, but honestly we shouldn’t have to do that with a smartphone app. Focus on making a simple user interface before adding features and this will end up as the best logbook/part 117 tracker out there.

Awesome App


This app is a must for pilots. Extremely comprehensive, but intuitive, the software tracks your FDP and flight times per FAR 117 requirements and determines your legality to for your upcoming FDP. NC Software also makes it easy to migrate your actual flight times from your company’s Crew Planning software ; i.e., SkedPlus, etc. using the APDL Toolkit applet. I highly recommend this app for those still stuck in the dark ages using hard logbooks. It’s time to go digital!

Best logbook for airline pilots


If you are an airline pilot this is the best logbook for you. It is more than just a logbook. It's a lifestyle changer.
