LogTen Pro contains a large variety of logbook report formats from around the world, and there many differences between these. LogTen Pro tries to use standard terms which apply globally, but some terms for the same information are quite different from place to place, and there are some areas that log unique values as well.
LogTen Pro utilizes Total Time and Night Time to manage your logbook, but some reports split everything into Day and Night. LogTen Pro handles all of this behind the scenes. Please refer to this page from additional details on how time is split for Day & Night.
If your region logs time separately for Multi-Engine and Single-Engine aircraft, LogTen Pro will figure all of this out for you! It will log your time in the appropriate columns by checking if the flight's Aircraft Type is Single-Engine or Multi-Engine. Just be sure to set the Class attribute for each of your Aircraft Types. This page has some other details on Managing Your Aircraft.
P2X time is an unusual time logged only for the Hong Kong CAA logbook. To display P2X time in the report, log the flight as SIC/P2 time, and then select the Custom Duty 1 field for that flight (on the Mac custom duty fields are checkboxes, and on the iPhone and iPad, they are ON/OFF switches). We also recommend renaming this custom duty field to "P2X" for easy reference.
