Warning: Do not use Dropbox, etc. for Logbook Pro data files

The cloud is here and it's amazing! There are several file sync services such as Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive that are great ways to keep your files synced across computers or devices. However, be very careful as these systems are continually watching your files for changes and doing bit level synchronization. Do NOT put your Logbook Pro data file (ends in .LBK) in any of these auto-syncing folders as it can and will become corrupt. Anytime you save something or make any changes to Logbook Pro the data file is updated and these sync services will try to sync your data file which is still in use. Making any type of changes to your data file while Logbook Pro is running can and will cause corruption. It is okay to create backups to these systems but do not store data files in these folders.

Be sure to backup frequently and consider using our integrated Cloud Backup for Logbook Pro Desktop service allowing you to send to the cloud by clicking File...Backup to Cloud. Click here to learn more.


In our May newsletter we said we wouldn't have any more updates on APDL but we simply cannot send out a newsletter and not give our airline community an update on this exciting new direly needed app for FAR 117 compliance and airline pilot flight logging. We have approximately two more test cycles left before we are ready to release as we are nailing down legality, working on workflow improvements, handling items such as Short Call Reserve, RAP, and validating our extensive legality engine. We are lucky to have some of the best beta testers and over 60 airline pilots across the spectrum are using APDL in their daily FAR 117 airline operations. APDL has been dubbed a "life saver" by our beta testers and we are listening to all of their great feedback, implementing their suggested improvements, fixing the bugs, and ensuring when APDL releases you will have a phenomenal airline logbook at your fingertips.

APDL® - the nickname for "Airline Pilot's Daily Aviation Logbook" is the red book replacement which will not only manage your complex FAR 117 legality requirements but also handle pay, rest, duty, give you great presentations of your information, manage all facets of an airline pilot's information management including schedule importing, crew, hotels, and more. APDL uses our high speed cloud infrastructure to sync and backup to the cloud automatically for instant device to device "data everywhere" capability. Unique layouts in a night friendly theme designed specifically for iPhone and iPad separate form factors.

Something great is on the way...thank you for your patience while we take the time to do it right vs. just get anything out to you. Your APDL developer team and our elite beta test team are working hard 7 days a week to get this desperately needed FAR 117 tool to the field.

Let us do the hard work - check out our Data Entry Service

If you have not gone electronic yet with your logbook now is the time. It can be a painful, time consuming, and cumbersome process therefore new pilots, start now. Pilots with over 500 hours, we can take the pain out of this process and do the grunt work for you. Simply ship us your logbooks or copies of and we will transcribe, line by line, your data from paper to Logbook Pro. We've been doing this for years and hundreds of jobs by our volunteer pilots, most of which are airline pilots. We can expertly transfer the data and use Logbook Pro's error checking system to ensure your data is as accurate as it can be without the common carry over math errors we see in written logbooks far too often. We have staff available now and volunteers waiting to join our team so sign up now and we'll get the process started. Don't wait until it's too late, plan properly and make the move to electronic today. Click here to learn more.
