On November 1, 2021 the latest edition of the Flight Logs software was released. This latest edition is still in the Alpha development stage, but it is steadily working towards the 1.0 release.

Flight Logs is more than just a database to log your rocket flights – a lot more. Here is just part of what’s included in the current release of Flight Logs:

• Flight Logs
This section tracks your flights of all your rockets and includes the launch configuration of the model, tracks the launch conditions, including the launch site and general weather conditions. If you suffer a CATO during launch, the software can record the information locally or it can connect you with the Online MESS reporting web site. Following the flight it can calculate altitude based on several methods of tracking, and can adjust onboard electronic altimeter readings based on actual weather conditions. It can record flight duration using up to two timers. You can also record the performance of the rocket and include a damage assessment and update the rocket’s flight status.

• NARTREK Reporting
If you are interested in going for the NARTREK Gold, Flight Logs can help you compile the certification packages. It has the ability to generate packages for the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, as well as the NARTREK Cadet Mercury level.

• Personnel
One of the unique aspects of the Flight Logs software is that it can be used by an individual or by a group, such as a club or research team.

• Preferences
Flight Logs allows for significant customization to the data it collects. You can also change the color themes (there are currently 6 color themes with more on the way) as well as change the background on the home page. You can change the default units of measure from metric to imperial, as well as mix and match units.

• Reports
No database would be complete without reports, and Flight Logs already has 33 built-in reports with more on the way in future releases. If you can’t find a report that does what you want, you can try our Custom Report Option.

• Help
Flight Logs comes with an extensive Help file that continues to grow.

What could make this even better? How about the fact that the software is free and open source! There is no charge for the software. Flight Logs only works on Windows systems, but has been tested on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, using both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Office environment but you do not need Office installed. If you see something that you feel should be included in Flight Logs, drop us a line. We will review all suggestions for inclusion in future releases.

We are releasing the ninth update to the Flight Logs Access database software. This version has no new updates and is considered a bug release. It should still be considered ALPHA level software and not for use in a production environment. It corrects the following issues:
  • The first issue occurs with the Access Trusted Location. This is experienced when you installed the database but it wouldn't open. The error message would have indicated that the database table was linked to the previous database path.
  • The second update occurs during the boot process and the display of the Main Menu. A black dialog box with a yellow triangle icon is displayed, but no text is visible. This error was associated with the custom icon option in preferences. This has also been corrected.
  • The MESS Report would report an error if no records were available.
  • NARTREK reports could be activated before any personnel were entered into the database.
  • Several reports would display an error message if no data was present.
  • Removed erroneous default data from the launch sites table and the 3D printer tables.
This version of the database is being release while work continues on several programming areas and user documentation. There are no new features in this update.
