Quick aircraft lookup by type or region
If you fly many different aircraft, you can quickly search for an Aircraft ID among all of your aircraft definitions.
Search your aircraft by type
In the Aircraft ID field, enter a type code followed by two slashes, e.g. C172//. The system will show you a pop-up menu with all of your aircraft IDs matching the entered type.
Search your aircraft by characteristics
You can search your aircraft by characteristics the same way, by entering e.g. TURBINE// in the Aircraft ID field to display all of your turbine aircraft definitions. The full list of search terms is below:
- Enter ROTOR// to display all rotorcraft
- Enter COMPLEX// to display all complex aircraft
- Enter TURBINE// to display all turbine aircraft
- Enter PISTON// to display all piston aircraft
- Enter WARBIRD// to display all aircraft with the Warbird box checked
- Enter TAA// to display all aircraft with the TAA box checked
- Enter SEL//, MEL//, SES//, or MES// to display applicable aircraft
Search your aircraft by region
This is for advanced users. If you've created line definitions from the Line Routes screen, you can assign each line to a region. Then, from the Flight Entry screen, you can display all aircraft based in a certain region. Here's how it works:
- Create your line definitions from Pilot Logbook -> Line Routes
- Enter a region code for each line definition, e.g. "CENTRAL"
- Then, from the Flight Entry screen, enter a region code followed by two dots (e.g. CENTRAL..) in the Aircraft ID field, to display all aircraft in the "CENTRAL" region
- To determine which aircraft belong to a region, the system will look at the Home Base field for all your aircraft. If the home base of any aircraft matches an airport in any leg of a line definition, the aircraft will be considered to be part of that region.
