PilotCalc is a utility comprising a mini Flight Log and Time Calculator. The basic functionality of the Time Calculator and the Flight Log is free with no ads, but the are several inexpensive in-app purchases available to extend the usefulness and to customise the appearance.
The Flight Log is designed to enable pilots to log basic flight information and a few notes for a series of flights, and automatically calculate the associated block, airborne and tech log times. If scheduled times are entered before flight, it also provides a countdown to departure. The Flight Log can be used in UTC or System time. There is an in-app purchase available that allows for customisation of the scheduled departure countdown, including adding and removing alert times, changing associated colours and the option to enable audio and/or background notifications for each countdown alert.
The Time Calculator is designed to add up logbook entries with minimal keystrokes, but can be used for any hours and minutes calculations, including those involving elapsed time within a 24 hour period (useful for those duty time sums at the end of a long night). There are no practical limits to the number of hours that can be added, but calculations resulting in negative time values are not supported. All calculations are held in a rolling tape for reference. There are a number of alternative colour keyboards available for a small in-app purchase.
The app was developed to work well on the relatively small screen of an iPhone but scales effectively to the larger iPad screens. This version does not allow synchronisation between devices.
