Happy Birthday Logbook Pro
Logbook Pro Turns 6!!!
We are happy to celebrate
Logbook Pro's sixth birthday this March after six great
years serving the aviation community. Logbook Pro
entered the market after two long years of research and
development beginning 1996, selling online for the first
time in March 1998. We are excited with where Logbook
Pro has come in this six years that went so fast. We
are continuing to improve upon a solid foundation our
customers have learned to love and rely on. Over the
past six years we are proud to say there has been ZERO data
lost cases and tremendous feedback on how Logbook Pro has
been a life saver in their aspiring aviation careers.
Helping aviators prepare for the toughest of interviews,
fill out cosmic insurance forms, or simple record keeping to
reflect the pride of their accomplishments and compliance
with regulations around the world. Logbook Pro is standing
stronger than ever!
We receive e-mails from time
to time telling us how crazy we are to not be putting out a
new version on a scheduled basis to capture upgrading
revenues like many other software vendors. We at NC
Software take pride in the quality of our product and that
speaks for itself. Logbook Pro's user base continues
to grow each and every month exceeding prior months records.
We are continuing to grow in the aviation marketplace and
our number one priority is customer satisfaction, product
reliability, usability, and ensuring we have the best
possible aviation flight logging software available.
Although our product still holds a "version 1" title, we
have updated this software product numerous times over the
past six years, some of which have been major upgrades with
others would easily charge for. So don't be fooled
with a product bearing a version 1 version number. Logbook
Pro is mature, advanced, reliable, secure, and proven!
Happy Birthday Logbook Pro -
we commit to many more years of aviation service and

Spring Fever - Take Logbook Pro
Are you getting the itch to
fly with spring peeking through the cooler weather spells?
On the East Coast we've been teased lately with Spring-like
days, deep blue skies and we find ourselves walking around
looking up all the time. Yes, we have the itch! Now
that you are heading to the airport to hop in the airplane
and go enjoy the spring like weather, or if you're headed
out on the next trip, don't forget to pull your PDA off the
cradle and take Logbook Pro with you! Don't you hate
coming home and having to get on the computer and log
flights when you should be warming up the oven for pizza and
your favorite beverage? If you aren't taking advantage
of Logbook Pro on your Palm or Pocket PC, you don't know
what you are missing! Fly your flight and before even
getting out of the plane (shut down of course) jot
your flight details in your PDA and just drop in the cradle
upon return to sync into Logbook Pro PC edition. It's
that simple! Now you can get back to food and
entertainment and not have to worry about any more "work"
associated with the flight.

Logbook Pro Version 2 Update
We are working hard on
Logbook Pro's next major update, version 2! To update
you on the status, we are working hard with our volunteer
research group to determine functionality, feature
requirements, usability improvements, and each and every way
we can assure version 2 is a clear winner for you, the
customer, the moment it releases. Building a new
software product from the ground up requires time and
devotion with great attention to detail. We spent two
years on version 1 ensuring features, quality, security,
reliability, and ease of use, and it has paid off
tremendously, we know you like it. We want the very
same with version 2. We don't have any dates to
announce at this time, simply because it is the curse of
software development to guarantee the date will not be met!
We are continuing to provide updates and new features for
version 1 as we are working on 1.9.6, the next free
maintenance update for Logbook Pro, shooting for release 1-3
months from this newsletter writing. Many ask if it is
safe to buy version 1 now or wait for version 2...version 2
is NOT coming out any time soon, it is still a long way off.
It is our recommendation to get version 1 now if you haven't
already. Get your logbooks up-to-date and the transition to
version 2 will be simple. As for the cost of upgrades,
we do not have this information and will not set pricing
until we close out public beta testing and get feedback from
our customers. As for order protection, please refer
policies for information regarding those that qualify
for a free upgrade when the time comes. It is
imperative that we hear your feedback and wishes for version
2. Please take the time and tell us what you want to
see in version 2 by using our
forums online. Keep the great feedback and ideas
coming...Logbook Pro is what it is today because of YOU!

.: Frequently Asked Questions
Pocket PC isn't accepting my registration code.
A: Try soft resetting the device
(reset button on bottom of device) then retry. Be sure
to enter the name and key code exactly as reflected on your
Pocket PC Companion license invoice.
bought the Logbook Pro license for $29.95 but the code says
A: The license for $29.95 is for the
PDA companion only. The PC product of Logbook Pro must
be licensed separately from
this link. However, for PDA companions, the
license code must be entered on the PDA and under the
PDA Companions menu.
tried installing the Palm Companion but I get an error about
Palm OS 4.x?
A: To install the Palm Companion, be
sure to use the Install link under the PDA Companions\Palm
Companion menu area. We updated the
documentation online but the documentation in 1.9.5 may
be misleading in the installation topic.
ordered the APDL product for my Palm Device but the key code
A: The most common cause for this
issue is confusion over NC Software's Logbook Pro Palm
Companion and Auman Software's Airline Pilot's Daily
Aviation Logbook (APDL). APDL is sold from our
store however the license code comes from Auman software
and is used for their product only. Be sure to
download APDL from the link provided in the invoice or from
the Auman Software
APDL web site.
get an error trying to sync my PDA with my Logbook Pro
Professional Clone file?
A: Logbook Pro PDA Companions can only
synchronize with the Master data file
(Professional/Enterprise Editions only). PDA
Companions cannot sync with _clone.lbk files.
purchased the Logbook Pro PDA product but how do I see my
A: As stated on the Logbook Pro web
site, the PDA companions are simple add-only devices for
adding flights while on the road. They do provide
report functionality and the ability to view data entered on
the PDA, however, complete logbook data is not sync'd to the
PDA for use. Our intent is to provide a simple system
for rapid data entry to be sync'd to the PC upon return.
This allows for higher performance operations and lower cost

Electronic Refer-a-Friend Program ($10 per Referral)
One of the highest requested
items over the years has been to move to an electronic
referral system as the system of printing out referrals was
too cumbersome and for the "I want it now" Internet delivery
system, the delay in the ordering process was not
acceptable. We've listened and we are proud to
announce our new high-tech refer-a-friend system.
Available only to registered
customers, from within Logbook Pro 1.9.5 and later you will
see a Refer-a-Friend button on the toolbar, as well as
available from other menus from within the software.
If registered, you will be taken to a page where you can
sign-up to receive your promotion code. It's that
easy! Once your code is e-mailed to you, which is
instantaneous on registration, you can then e-mail your
friends, put it on our Logbook Pro Brochure, etc. and upon
checkout, your friends will see a Promotional Code box on
the payment screen where they can enter the code you
provided. At checkout, your account will be immediately
credited with a referral and at the end of the month be
paid for all referrals for the month. It's that easy,
click, get code, send out, make money! You asked, we
listened, we acted! We hope you enjoy the new system
and it makes it easier for you to spread the word on this
great logbook solution.
