Hello,

I use the flight log feature in SD happily to "document" all the flying I'm doing as a source for the paperwork which I have to do (In Germany will still have the requirement for handwritten paper based FlightLogbook)

If I do a simple flight, takeoff here and land there - everything is fine and easy.

But... as a flight instructor I have quite often a situation like this:
- take off on home airfield A
- do some touch & go at airfield B
- do some touch & go at airfield C
- land again on home airfield D

Problem A
- SkyDemon doesn't seem to recognize most of the time the touch & go landings
=> it would be great to my opinion if I could configure somehow the speed/altitude criteria for "on the ground"

Problem B
- If I open the flight log in SD I can the the altitude graph of the flight. But unfortunately (to my opinion) the x-axis shows the time in minutes after takeoff.
Of course I could now calculate the proper landing times by using the starttime plus the elapsed minutes of the flight.
=> I think it would be much easier if the x-axis would show the actual UTC time or could be configured to that.

Or is that already there in SD and I just didn't find it?


Thanks in advance!

Regards
Philipp

I cant help you with Problem A but i can comment Problem B:
The altitude graph shows the distance not the time after take off.

After loading the log file you can grab the plane in the altitude graph and drag it through your flight path.
This shows your flight time, altitude and speed at that point.

I found the option to merge your log (log overview before loading: bottom of window)
with another log file but unfortunately nothing to split it.
That would be a nice feature.
