In the last 10 years we have seen a transformation of airplane cockpits. The cockpit is no longer full of Paper Charts, Approach Plates and Airport Directories. Everything we need to fly has gone electronic. That is for everything expect for one piece of paper many pilots still deal with everyday: The Paper Aircraft Dispatch Sheet.

Airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and many other industry insiders are concerned with the quality of flight training options, especially in light of pilot shortages. An upgrade to a popular app may provide a solution to some of the biggest problems that plague the industry.
It’s unusual for pilots to be happy with a rule change from the FAA. But the new BasicMed rule change that went into effect on May 1, 2017 has many of them celebrating. And some are also a bit confused. The contradiction can be summed up in two quotes.
“Much of the general aviation community is ecstatic about BasicMed,” AOPA President Mark Baker said of the new alternative to medical certification.
“I read about the other things that I had to do to fly under BasicMed and I had the overwhelming feeling that if I were doing this for real I would just go get an FAA medical because that would be less trouble.” Said Richard Collins in the Air Facts Journal.
Pilot Partner has added support for BasicMed to it’s Electronic Logbook Option. With this feature a pilot can easily keep track of any kind of FAA Medical and all of the requirements to act as a Pilot In Command. Pilot Partner will alert the user when a required action item is coming due.
Lower fuel costs and reduced purchase price of many general aviation and business aircraft, particularly older aircraft, combine to make it a great time for general and business aviation pilots to acquire or renew their flying credentials and spend more time in the air for business or pleasure this spring and summer.
Pilot Partner has released the Free Aircraft Maintenance Tracker feature inside of it Pilot Logbook application. This is a great tool for an Aircraft Owner, Flying Club or Flight School to keep track of the Maintenance and Inspection status of their aircraft. Using the Aircraft Setup wizard you can enter all of the required information to get an accurate status of your aircraft in relation to the required inspections.
And this is a Free to Use for All of your Aircraft!
Through a graphical display, you can see when your Next Annual Inspection is due, how many hours are on your engine and each cylinder plus track any other item you want. You can even load any reoccurring Airworthiness Directives into the Maintenance Tracker and and never be caught by surprise when something is due.
Converting from a thick Paper Logbook to an Electronic Logbook doesn’t mean you have to spend hours manually typing in years of flying. There are easier ways to start benefiting from an Electronic Pilot Logbook.
