Get started with LogTen in 3 minutes! This short video will help you set up your logbook to make the most out of LogTen and maximise efficiency during logging to save you time, every time, on every flight!
Below the video, each topic is expanded upon with additional resources.
Typical Roles are a way to quickly set up LogTen out-of-the-box and configure your logbook to tailor the needs of the type of flying that you do.
They will automatically display certain fields and auto-fill those that are relevant to the type of flying selected. Once selected, the logbook can, of course, be configured further, but they are a great way of kick-starting the initial set-up. Our Guide for Typical Roles covers exactly what fields become visible and which ones auto-fill depending on the selection.
If GPS is enabled for LogTen the app can auto-fill your From and To location by pressing the GPS button. Whether you're at the airport hotel or an offshore helipad, LogTen can auto-fill your location data.
LogTen has hundreds of data fields that can be used to enter information (as well as several custom ones), and not all of them are relevant all the time, or are needed for a particular type of flying.
This display configuration can be customised to only show the fields that are relevant to you, making it truly a personal and individual logbook!
To learn how to configure your fields in iOS and/or Mac, we created this guide that explains the process.
A new entry can be created relative to the entry you are currently in, preserving some of the data entered, and saving you time each time you log a flight flight.
Three different options will maintain different data points:
- Next Leg
Our Logbook Entry Shortcuts article goes into each of these in detail.
Virtually everything in LogTen can be shared with fellow pilots. This is especially useful in Multi-Crew environments, or in an Instruction lesson. LogTen will even adjust the fields accordingly! (In multi-crew scenarios if PIC is logged and the entry is shared with the SIC, PIC time will update to SIC, similarly to Instruction flights, where Dual Received will be updated to Dual Given, and vice-versa)
Everything that can be shared with other pilots, and how this seamless process works is covered in our Sharing Article.
Do you always log SIC, XC, and Multi-Pilot time, or always log Dual Given and PIC Time? LogTen has you covered, and it can be set up to automatically log those time fields based on the Total Time of your flight.
You can set as many Time Auto-fills as you wish, saving you time every time you log a flight!
To set this up on iOS and/or Mac, please follow the instructions on this article.
Out-of-the-box LogTen comes prepacked with over 8,000 Aircraft Types in the database, based on the ICAO designators. To save you time during logging, there is no need to log AMEL, or Jet time every single time you log a flight; instead, LogTen will use the attributes of an Aircraft Type to automatically calculate this for you.
For example, if you fly a C172, LogTen will automatically count those flights towards your Airplane time, as well as Single Engine-Land and Reciprocating.
Similarly, if you fly the DH8D, LogTen will automatically count the time towards your Airplane, Multi Engine-Land, Turbo-Prop and Multi-Pilot Time.
To learn more about how to set up an Aircraft Type, we created this article.
As always, our fantastic support team will be at hand if any other questions come up, we'll be standing by on the other end of email@example.com, or going through the Help menu in your iOS or Mac LogTen app.
