Info and Concepts
From time to time it is necessary for a pilot to enter a sector return that either did not occur in a company aircraft or was carried out in a simulator. In these cases the pilot can use the returns section to enter a manual sector return and add the flight time or sim time including recencies to their log book.
- Open the returns section from the Flights menu.
- In the top right hand corner of the return screen enter the pilot name and the date that you wish to use for the log book update.
- Click the log book icon to open the log book entry window and then click the add a record icon to create a manual log book entry.
- In the logbook data window you can enter the registration from the drop down list. Every registration in Australia is listed here so if the flight was carried out in an aircraft that it is not listed in your system you can still select the correct one.
- Enter the flight hours carried out and save the record.
- If the return was not carried out in an aircraft at all you can select just the “Class Code”, this is the minimum required in the window.
- Enter the hours as SIM hours and save the record.
- This has created a manual logbook entry for the pilot and we can now open the recencies window to update the pilot recency counts. Click the recencies button in the logbook entry line.
- This will open the recency window as shown below.
- The individual item counts can be entered in the count column. Clicking in an orange field to update an IFR related count will open the IFR tree for the data to be entered and saved.
- Once saved this information will flow through to the pilot log book and will update the days to run for each recency item.
