Flight Simulator Logbook Editor (FS Logbook Editor) is a small program to edit – as the title implies, logbook files created by Microsoft® Flight Simulator X (mainly), Microsoft® Flight Simulator 2004, Lockheed Martin Prepar3D® and X-Plane 10/11®.
What logbook? What is the logbook, you ask? Well, for aviators, the amount of hours flown is important, as it is on of the main indicators of their experience. So every pilot keeps track of his/her hours in a “logbook”, which is basically a paper or electronic list of all flights that aviator flew. For flight simmers, this logbook is created and written to automatically every time they run one of the simulators mentioned above. Information like departure airport, destination airport and of course flight times are automatically logged.
I can edit logbook records right inside Flight Simulator more or less, why should I need FS Logbook Editor? You are right, you can edit the records right in the flight simulator, but doing so feels a little clumsy to me, not much “user friendly”. It works fine to change one or two things from time to time, but it is not much “joy” for some more detailed logbook management. One example is, say you want to keep only “serious” flights you did inside the logbook. This would require you to go through all the records and delete all “test”, “tweak”, “whatever tuning” flight records. If I would have to do all of this in flight simulator interface, I would rather not do it at all. And FS Logbook Editor can do more than just those simple edits.
- Supports Flight Simulator 2004, Flight Simulator X, Lockheed Martin Prepar3D® ,X-Plane 10 and X-Plane 11 logbook files.
- Allows all basic editing operations: add, edit, delete.
- Join two or more records into one record.
- Merge logbooks.
- Append logbook to another logbook.
- Calculate basic statistics.
- Repair corrupted binary logbook files to some extent. (Flight Simulator X sometimes does not save logbook correctly and hangs due to this next time you start it. You can fix this with loading logbook into FS Logbook Editor and saving the logbook again without the need to delete the whole logbook)
- Save logbook as Flight Simulator 2004 text formatted logbook (.log), Flight Simulator X binary logbook (.bin), Open-Document spreadsheet (.ods), Comma-Separated Values (.csv) file, X-Plane 10/11 text formatted logbook (.txt) ,FS Logbook Editor XML file (.fslex) and Keyhole markup language file (.kml) – to view in Google Earth.
- Export flights to Google Earth.
- Define and calculate certain personal minimums.
- Define pilot certifications and see which ones you are eligible for.
- Compute pilot statistics (hours flown per aircraft, aircraft category or user aircraft category, takeoffs and landings per aircraft, aircraft category, user aircraft category, per airport, city, country and/or state, distance flown per aircraft, aircraft type or user aircraft category).
- Customizable pilot statistics output via templates.
- Multilingual support and easy to translate. (FS Logbook Editor supports Czech and English for now, but places no restrictions to be translated into another language).
- Supports custom templates for saving logbook as Open-Document Spreadsheet (.ods).
- Display airport data such as airport name, city, country and state. These data can be imported from Flight Simulator X, Prepar3D, X-Plane and from Navigraph database.
- Filter records.
- Display flight on map.
