The article will describe how to log Approaches on the iOS and Mac apps.

 

Logging Approaches on the iOS app

Approaches are logged in entries in the Logbook tab

Scroll down to the Operations section until you see  Approach 1. You can configure the Operations section to show up to 10 Approach fields. Please see Configuring the Logbook tab on iOS for more information.

Logging Approaches

Tap on  Approach 1 and you will be taken to the approach logging tab. Only the quantity is required to be filled out in order to log an approach. Of course, individual aviation governing authorities will have their own rules on what information must be recorded for instrument currency.

The section has four parts:

  1. Quantity
  2. Approach Type
  3. Runway
  4. Airport

Quantity

This is the number of times that the approach was made. For example, if you performed an ILS approach 3 times to the same runway at the same place, you can type 3 in Quantity as opposed to using the Approach 1Approach 2, and Approach 3 fields to log multiple quantities of the same approach.

Approach Type

Choose the type of approach made here. Many different types of precision and non-precision approaches are available by default. If the type of approach desired is not listed, type it into the Custom field.

Runway

The runway used for the Approach can be entered into this field. For approaches with no runway assigned, type in other identification if desired - for example, "A" or "B".

Airport

Tapping on Airport will take you to the Places tab. Choose the airport that the approach was made to, or add a new one if this place has not been added yet.
