CrewLounge PILOTLOG prints 75 different logbook formats. These can be divided in three categories :
- official state logbooks, issued by the local aviation authorities
- published logbooks, issued by Jeppesen, ASA, and other companies
- generic logbooks, printing paper-size filled
All these logbooks come with typical columns, like Departure and Arrival airfields, Name of Pilot-in-Command, function and condition time, and Remarks. The logic is straight forward.
The following logic applies to all logbooks printed with CrewLounge PILOTLOG :
|PIC Time||PIC time includes PIC, PICus, SPIC and SOLO, unless there is a separate column for PICus, SPIC and/or SOLO in the same logbook|
|SIC Time||SIC time is only printed for multi-pilot aircraft|
|DUAL Time||DUAL time is always considered "Received". Instructor time may go to "DUAL Given" if DUAL and Instructor time are logged on the same flight.|
|Day / Night||PILOTLOG does not have a field for recording Day time. You should not create a user time field either. Instead, Day time is automatically calculated as Total Time minus Night Time logged on the flight.|
|VFR Time||PILOTLOG does not have a field for recording VFR time. You should not create a user time field either. Instead, VFR time is automatically calculated as Total Time minus IFR Time logged on the flight.|
Next, we cover certain logbooks with some more complex logic:
L021 - South-Africa - CAA
|(6)||Nav Aids||Type of approaches logged on this flight|
|(8)||Actual Time||Actual Instrument time + Simulated Instrument time||(empty)|
|(9)||FSTD Time||(empty)||Total Time of simulator session|
|(12)||FSTD Time||(empty)||Examiner time, else Instructor time|
|(13)||FSTD ACTUAL TIME||(empty)||Total Time of simulator session|
