Alphavictor, maker of AVLogbook, announced this week that it released version 2.0 of the company’s Web-based logbook. Version 2.0 is designed to be faster and offer more features than the previous version, said company CEO Bruce Micek.
The logbook offers myriad features, including pulldown menus for maneuvers completed during the flight, autofill of flight times, a cross-country distance calculator, and all other applicable flight time parameters. AVLogbook also monitors all pilot flight time currencies, as well as medical, pilot certificate, and passport information.
Micek said he designed the logbook to be useful for student pilots up through professionals. That’s apparent in the ability for CFIs to automatically crossfill their information with the student’s, and for professionals to automatically bill clients based on logbook entries.
Membership to the logbook is free for the first 30 days, and then a one-time fee of $125 applies if the user decides to purchase the service.
Pilot Safety and Skills
Your mission: Fly with eight F-15s to the Philippines, rejoin, refuel with air tankers, engage an unknown number of Red Air fighters, refuel again, and then return home to Okinawa. And fly with radio silence up to the first contact with the Red Air fighters.
The Aviation Safety Reporting System is a voluntary safety reporting program that allows airmen to make anonymous reports to the government about issues encountered in aviation, with anonymity allowing the airman to be candid–even when their actions may have been a violation of the regulations.
The pilots of an Atlas Air Boeing 747 Dreamlifter en route from John F. Kennedy International Airport to McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kan., mistakenly landed 8 nautical miles away at Colonel James Jabara Airport Nov. 20.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
