FlightFiles has been designed to allow pilots to spend less time tracking and more time flying their aircraft. However, to accomplish this goal a few important steps must occur during the initial setup. We strongly recommend reviewing the below simple steps necessary to add an aircraft to the FlightFiles system. With a little organization you can be up and running quickly!
Note: Most of our customers start tracking their aircraft in FlightFlies starting with their date of membership, this is the easiest method. If you would prefer to load historical information Contact Us for solutions to load prior history!
Before you get started there are a few key pieces of information that will be necessary. Grab those logbooks and have the following ready:
Once all needed information is collected for your aircraft, login to your FlightFiles account and complete the following steps.
When recording flight history within FlightFiles the PIC is selected from a list. You are automatically added to this list by default, however, you might want to add others. To add other pilots follow these simple steps after logging in.
When adding an aircraft to FlightFiles a few common maintenance items are added for tracking purposes. You may add additional items for tracking such as AD Compliance, Engine Overhaul, Annual Inspections, Avionics Updates and more. To manage maintenance items follow the below steps after logging in.
That's it! You are done! Now get out there and enjoy your aircraft! After each flight simply return to FlightFiles and visit the "Flight Log" section to record your flight history.
