Coradine Aviation Systems announced this week the newest update to its flagship LogTen Pro electronic logbook software. The new version 6.0 will be available for Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
The biggest feature of the release is the integration of Apple’s iCloud system, which will store data remotely, thereby making a customer’s logbook information available on any compatible device without the need to transfer or back up information.
The iPhone and iPad version also includes digital signature, a feature that allows instructors to sign a student’s logbook via the touchscreen.
All the new versions have additional features aimed at professional pilots, including visual graphing of rest and duty time, and tracking of reserve and deadheads.
Coradine also announced version 2.0 of the flight planning application OnTime. The application is a basic route calculator. Users enter departure, destination, and desired departure or arrival time and OnTime calculates the other time in local, as well as distance, duration, and fuel required. The new version allows users to store favorites, enter more waypoints, and manage more aircraft profiles.
LogTen Pro version 6.0 will be available in the app store soon for $79.99 for iPad and iPhone, and $149.99 for Mac. OnTime will be available for $29.99.

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.
