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.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
