ZuluLog.com, a provider of Web-based aviation record keeping services and software, has released its new Android application for pilots.
The ZuluLog Android app can be used as a standalone pilot logbook, but is designed to work with customer accounts at ZuluLog.com. Users can enter, edit, and view flights from anywhere, with or without a data connection, from any compatible Android device. Once back online, syncing with the online logbook at ZuluLog.com is done through a single click.
The Android app also includes features such as tracking of PIC currency, instrument currency, and NVG currency. Customers can also create custom fields for flight entry through their ZuluLog.com accounts, and have the fields available in the app.
Also included is an exclusive Flight Counters screen that can track takeoffs, landings, approaches, and holds in real time, as well as total flight time, simulated instrument time, and actual instrument time, making it a tool for student pilots, CFIs, and instrument-rated pilots. These totals can be transferred to the Flight Entry screen with a single click.
Customers can also use the app’s dedicated screens to track notes, squawks, nav/comm frequencies, transponder codes, and IFR clearances.
The app also includes reference information useful to pilots, such a light gun signal chart, VFR visibility requirements, IFR alternate airport requirements, Morse code, and more.
Other features include a set of pilot tools such as red and white flashlights and a magnetic compass with a heading bug, and also a night mode setting to help preserve night vision adaptation in low-light operational conditions.
“Our customers love the security and flexibility of keeping their flight records online at ZuluLog.com,” says Kelly J. Bonner, Vice President of Customer Relations. “But they also want to be able to log and view flight details and currency information when they’re in remote locations, away from an active Internet connection. Our new Android app gives them the best of both worlds.”
The ZuluLog Android app is currently free for all users, although future releases are expected to be made available only to active ZuluLog.com customers. The company is also developing dedicated apps for iPhone and iPad, due for release by late 2011.
