Maps have been fixed!

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

The map feature hs been broken for a long time. It has finally been fixed. As you can probably tell, the development of FlightLoggin' has slowed down. In the past few months. This is not likely to change, but I don't think there are too many bugs left to fix. I do promise that if the site ever goes down or has a critical bug, I will try to get it fixed as soon as I can. But there will be very little new development unless a new programmer want to start contributing code.

OpenID is deprecated

Monday, April 29th, 2013

OpenID is officially no longer supported by FlightLoggin'. It is too much hassle to keep up with changes in each provider's quarks. The ability to register new accounts with OpenID is gone, but you can still login to existing accounts with OpenID. If you registered originally with OpenID and can't access your account, click the "Reset password" link on the login popup dialog box. You will receive an email containing a password you can use to login with.

Openid may be fixed

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

The library that was being used to handle openid logins has now been upgraded. This may fix the issue people were having with not being able to login. If you've been having trouble logging in, please try again. If you still can't log in, please report any problems you are having to the forum. The link is at the bottom of each page.' has a new home.

Recently has switched to a more reliable host. The constant downtime and slowness will now hopefully be a thing of the past. Also, some of the software that was being used to run the site has been upgraded, so for the time being email updates, states maps, and RSS feeds have been turned off. Once the site's code has been updated to work with these new versions (hopefully within a week) these features will return.

Downtime again

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Hello everyone! As you know, the site was down all day yesterday. The reason for this was that the company that runs the servers that' is hosted on shut it down. The reason for this, according to the hosting company, they did this because it had received complaints from people saying the backup emails the site sends out are spam. So if you don't want to get those emails any more, then please go to your preferences and change it there. Don't just mark the emails as spam.

Intermittent Downtime

Friday, November 12th, 2010

Over the past 3 or so days the site has been kind of up and down. This is because as the site has grown in popularity, search engines are becoming more and more interested in's content. Web crawler activity had picked up, which is causing server load to be very high at times. The problem crops up explicitly when the googlebot starts crawling the site's KMZ files, which are quite CPU intensive to render. I have instructed googlebot to back off, so well see...

New email backup behavior

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

The automatic backup feature has been slightly modified. Now it only sends you an email if you have edited any part of your logbook during the backup interval. For instance, if you have requested to get an auto email backup sent to you monthly, you will only get an email if you have edited some part of your logbook in the past month.

New Forum

The' Forum has moved. You now no longer need to resister a new account for the forum. The new url is

UPDATE: Also, if you're wanting a copy if your old' data, sending an email to won't work currently as the email system is currently down. Make a forum post instead for the time being.

Plane Improvements

Monday, March 29th, 2010

There has been some recent enhancements to the way' handles planes. First off, you can select to make certain planes 'retired'. This means they will no longer show up in the plane dropdown menu on the new flight popup window. This is useful for when a plane gets sold and it no longer comes available to you, or if the plane changes, and therefore a new entry for that tailnumber is required. Instead of having duplicate planes with the same number show up in the dropdown, you can retire the old one so there's only one.

The next addition is the ability to make a plane hidden. This makes all flights in that airplane hidden from's site-wide aggregate pages. If you are the owner pilot, and you don't want the flights you log in your own plane to show up, then you can just mark that plane in your 'Planes' section as hidden. All though this will not prevent flights logged in that tailnumber from other people from showing up in those pages.

And the third enhancement is the ability to define a plane's default fuel burn. The fuel burn field on the flight section was originally designed to enter actual, measured fuel burns. The problem was that many users were adding estimated fuel burns in that column when the plane they flew had no way to actually measure the fuel burned for the flight. For instance, people were putting "6 gph" for all flights in a C-172, even though it is unlikely they actually had a measured fuel burn of exactly 6.0 each time.

Now, if the plane does not have a way to measure fuel burn, then it is recommended you enter the estimated fuel burn on the plane section of each tailnumber you fly. This way, all flights you log in that tailnumber will use that default value if no exact fuel burn has been entered on the flight popup. This has the benefit of not making you enter the same value in the new flight popup every time, as well as separating the actual measured fuel burn numbers with estimated fuel burn numbers.

In the fuel burn columns on the logbook page, all estimated fuel burns calculated from the value associated with the plane will be depicted in gray. All measured values that are entered from the flight popup will be depicted in black.

Gravatar support

Monday, February 15th, 2010' now supports gravatars! You may have noticed a strange monster image in the top left corner. That is your gravatar. If you want to change it, you must go to Gravatar's website, sign up for an account, upload a photo, crop it with their cropping utility, then make sure your email address matches your gravatar email address. The image is to make it easier to identifiy your logbook from others'.
