One of my favorite features is that all numbers are constantly added up for me. Every 6 months I add up all my numbers in the back of my paper logbook. With VortexLog all I have to do is select the time period I need to add up (example Jan-Jun 2009), one click and all my hours are there - minus the calculators and fingers.
I'm a Sunday pilot, I fly when the sun shines bright and my pocket has cash in it. Last year I was going to take my friend and his parents up for a tour flight of the Hawaiian Islands. The day before I received a Recency of Experience warning in my inbox from VortexLog.com. This warning (which I created myself) said that I hadn't flown a single engine airplane in over 90 days and that I needed to complete 3 touch n' goes before taking passengers up. It's amazing how time goes by because I was sure I was current. Sure enough, it had been 90 days, needless to say I was a little rusty but did okay in the end.
There are many great electronic pilot logbook apps out there that can do a lot of cool stuff. VortexLog keeps it simple and serious, so we try to stay away from a lot of online practices that a pilot doesn’t really need when it comes to a logbook. Simple doesn’t mean flimsy – you will quickly find how powerful many of the features can be during different aspects of your career.
