Training log

The system maintains a training log for all users in the system. The way you would use the training log differs depending on whether you are under instruction, or whether you are the instructor.

Viewing your own training notes

If your flight school or club uses the system to record training notes, you will find a read-only copy of them linked to your account.

To view your own training notes, click your Training tab.

Training records are listed with the most recent first. On a device with a wide screen all columns are usually displayed, but on smaller screen devices only the most important columns are shown. To view a specific training record, click the date and time shown under the Start time column.

If any rows are highlighted, these are incomplete entries. Your instructor should complete the record, setting the correct operating capacity, exercises completed and should add comments as necessary. Reminders are sent to instructors at the end of the day if there are any incomplete entries.

A summary section may be displayed. If it is, you can expand it to reveal details of hours spent under instruction on each type of aircraft and each operating capacity.

You can also export the training log in CSV format if you wish. To do this, click the Download CSV button shown at the bottom of the list.

Using the training notes system as an instructor

When recording training notes, these are either directly linked to a flight, or added manually as "ground school" notes. It is not possible to add flight notes without first entering flight details. Each flight can generate a training record, depending on the selections made when saving the flight. When a flight is saved, a blank - incomplete - training record is created automatically and linked to both instructor and student.

To complete the training notes for a flight, it is easiest to click Training in the main primary links area. This presents a list of all training notes and is only available to instructors. From this page you can filter by date, filter by member or filter to show incomplete entries only.

Therefore, to complete adding training notes relating to a flight, find the training entry by setting the filter to show incomplete entries. These are highlighted when initially created to make them easier to find. Depending on the number of subsequent flights you may find the training record is visible on the page without needing to set a filter.

Another useful method is to view your own Training tab, and set the filter to show records where you are the instructor. This will show any incomplete entries you need to fill in.

Simply click on the date and time shown under the Start time column to start editing a training record.

To add a "ground school" record, click the + Add ground school button from a student's account page.
