On ipad as well as on windows, almost every flight time calculation shows a wronh result. Here are some examples
1. This should be 41 instead of 40 minutes



2. Time between Takeoff and Landing should be 50 instead of 49 minutes.

3.This flight was 1:14 not 1h 13m

It looks like SD is calculating internal System Date/Time Formats, and not those visible numbers.
Would be nice to fix this little issue.

Best regards
Andreas

It's not really an issue. Takeoff and landing times are recorded to millisecond precision. The output of times is shown as minute precision. When we do a subtraction to get the duration between two times, we typically show that output in minute precision. Therefore what you're seeing are rounding errors, which will always occur somewhere.

Thank you, for your answer.
I would like suggest either to show these times in hh:mm:ss, or reextract your calculating values from numbers shown on the panels.
It would simply make live a little easier after flight, when copying Log&Block times from SD into paper books later. Currently these SD summaries are useles, because the users have to recalculate it manually everytime before it can be used.

Well, we will have to disagree that they are "useless" as most people seem to be able to copy them into their logbooks without issue.

I'm sorry, if I was unable to find the right words. It was not my intention to blame anyone. I love this software, and these logging  time are just only a very very minor thing. Thank you for your patience.
