Zululog.com, which offers a free online logbook, announced recently it has released an accompanying Android application.
The application, which is also free, allows users to track information on their phone or Android tablet. Although the application is meant to be used in connection with a Zululog.com account, it can be used independently. If connected to the Web, the application will automatically sync with the Zululog.com account, or wait to connect and update later if out of range during use.
Users can track things such as PIC currency, instrument currency, and all the normal logbook parameters. If a user creates custom fields in the online logbook, those fields are also imported to the application.
Also included is a counter feature that keeps track of flight conditions in real time, and then imports that information into the logbook with a single click. There are other ancillary features, including “flashlights” and regulation references.
The company expects to make iPad and iPhone applications available later this year.

Continuing significant orders to the training market shows that Piper Aircraft is making progress in its three-year plan to gain market share in that competitive arena.
L-3 Aviation Products plans to join the general aviation ADS-B world with its Lynx MultiLink Surveillance System. The new products will be “specifically tailored to fit the panel and budget of today’s general aviation aircraft and pilots,” said Larry Riddle, vice president of sales and marketing.
It was a big day for the newly resurrected Mooney International Corp. Mooney president Jerry Chen handed over the keys to the first airplane to roll out of the Kerrville, Texas, manufacturer’s newly reactivated factory site.
