New Custom Binder Products

Table of Contents:

.: Taxes are Done, Cleared for Takeoff, Proceed VFR...

Whew!  April 15th is behind us and now we can concentrate on the important stuff, reaching for the skies!  The weather is warming up (at least on the East Coast) and the skies are blue and the airport keeps calling "come fly..." so it's only fitting to do what we all love to do, fly!  Airshow season will be starting up soon, time to get the sun screen and cool shades and go to our favorite shows, hear the "sound of freedom" and enjoy the history of aviation.

We have some exciting news for the Logbook Pro community, new products that you all have been asking for.  One of the main shortfalls of the e-Logbook era is the capturing of signature items -- endorsements.  We have the answer to this problem with our new MGOent. Endorsement pages.  We've also added manual logbook pages for handwritten entries for the MGOent. binders which also fills a void in capturing flight data while on the road.  Read below for more information.  We're also excited to announce FlightCentral is throwing in something special with each purchase containing their nifty Route Browser mapping tool.  Read on to learn how you can get free stuff from FlightCentral.

We wish everyone a super safe flying season ahead.  Share the passion for aviation, take a friend flying, and keep the spirit strong!

.: Get your FlightCentral Pilot Book of Questions - FREE

With a purchase of any product including the exciting FlightCentral Route Browser add-on for Logbook Pro, you will now receive a FREE copy of "The Pilot Book of Questions" courtesy of FlightCentral.  After purchasing the Route Browser, you will receive the information on obtaining your free copy.

Almost every pilot has achieved their skills by a unique path and as such has absorbed (or rejected) advice from a variety of instructors and situations. Thus, whenever two pilots get together, there is the opportunity to continue the learning process and exchange the knowledge and experiences that are unique for each pilot. The Pilot’s Book of Questions is not a book of pilot test or skill questions. Instead, it attempts to ask questions that don’t necessarily have a right or wrong answer. Hopefully, each question generates discussion, debate, research and hopefully a better understanding of the myriad of issues surrounding piloting. The questions in this book are numbered and organized by topic. Follow-up questions, if applicable, are listed after a question in smaller type. Relevant references to the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) or the Airman’s Information Manual (AIM) may be included to provide additional insights. Questions cover a wide range of flying experiences and aircraft types. Although many of the questions can have a short “yes” or “no” answer, there is much to be gained by also asking “why?” or “how?” as a standard follow-up to each question. This book should be used by two or more pilots as a source of discussion topics and can help pass the time during a long cruise or waiting for the clouds to clear. It can help students gain more from their instructors than standard flight instruction typically covers. Used multiple times with pilots of different backgrounds and experience levels, this book can yield a broad range of opinion.

.: 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.
