FltPlan’s eLogbook has a New Look and New Functionality
FltPlan’s free eLogbook has a new look and exciting new features. The updated eLogbook program lets users add photos to any entry. The eLogbook is a responsive, multi-platform design and works on any desktop, laptop, iOS or Android device. Since the logbook is accessible anywhere, anytime it is something pilots can keep for a lifetime. As always, your data is stored on FltPlan’s servers, rather than on your device, and no subscription is required to use the program.
To help you get started, we have a complete eLogbook manual with detailed instructions on using the program. We also have a new video available for eLogbook in our Video Support library.
You can find eLogbook by going to Main Menu > Tools > eLogbook. Don’t get tied in to a subscription. FltPlan’s eLogbook is free, and it can integrate with your FltPlan.com account or stand alone.
ICAO Equipment Suffixes: Where did my /Q go?
We continue to receive frequent questions about ICAO equipment suffixes and wake turbulence categories. Given the fact that the FAA plans to eliminate domestic format for civil aircraft beginning January 2017, we hope that we can clarify and resolve any confusion surrounding ICAO format flight plans. First, it’s important to understand that filing an ICAO format flight plan does not necessarily mean that you are filing an international flight plan. The ICAO format allows you to file RNAV SIDs and STARs and has nothing to do with your destination. One of the key differences between domestic and ICAO flight plans is that in domestic format, the equipment suffix appears after the aircraft type. In ICAO format, the wake turbulence category appears directly after the aircraft type.
/L in ICAO format (left) means light wake turbulence. /G in domestic format (right) means GPS.
/M in ICAO format (left) means medium wake turbulence. /L in domestic format (right) means RNAV and RVSM.
To enter your ICAO data, go the Main Menu > Settings > A/C ICAO Data. FltPlan has made it easier for you to choose the appropriate equipment by offering selections specific to the turbulence category of your aircraft.
