New iPad app for creating flight logs released

Cockpit Apps, a company that offers iPad solutions for the cockpit, has launched its flagship application, iLOG.

iLOG provides pilots with a simple, yet modern, alternative to traditional pen-and-paper flight logs, increasing efficiency and accuracy while reducing the pilot’s workload, company officials said.

The app follows a pilot through a typical duty day, tracking components such as duty and flight time, VOR checks, and RVSM altimeter settings. The app is also configured to record squawks as well as engine, airframe, and component times, meeting the FAA’s requirements for both flight and maintenance logs. At the end of each day, crews can either electronically sign the documents using an iPad digital signature and email their flight logs to dispatch, or they can simply print them out.

iLOG has been in development for over six months and was created by pilot and industry veteran, Robert Creek, who originally developed the app for his own flight department based in Chicago.

Creek, along with thousands of other professional pilots, believe the iPad is revolutionizing the aviation industry. “Pilots on everything from a Gulfstream 550 all the way to a Cessna 152 are using the iPad these days,” said Creek, president of Cockpit Apps, “and we’ve just scratched the surface with respect to using the device’s full capabilities. The iPad is having a tremendously positive impact on flight operations, both in terms of efficiency and saving money.”
