The question is best answered in three parts:
A traditional logbook can be lost to causes natural
or unnatural. With an electronic logbook you
can print out as many copies as you want. Also, see below
how we ensure the data on the servers.
When hand-writing entries, invariably
one makes mistakes and then have to resort to either
scribbling or an ink-eraser neither of which results
in neat pages. With an electronic logbook, you
can edit as many times as you want and still get neat uniform
pages every time you print.
One of the biggest pains with a traditional logbook is
adding up the columns and carrying the totals forward. With an
electronic logbook - automatic!
Accessibility from any PC
or web-device that has internet access. In the future
we plan to offer pages specifically designed for
smartphones thereby allowing you to make your
entries as soon as the flight is over.
Web interface means no software installation, updates and need to learn
a new user-interface. The entire site is designed in a simple
clean interface to get the job done.
Database is backed-up automatically nightly. You might
be using a PC based logbook software right now...but how often
do you backup the data?
We realize that a logbook is important to all pilots.
We back-up the database nightly on three different servers.
All the servers are in different physical locations. If something
catastrophic should happen to the main server, we can rebuild it within
days from the backup database.
Customization. With editable
columns and reports, have your logbook look just right for your needs. You can use your personal images as logbook backgrounds.
