So I have been looking for a decent iPhone flight log app and have been sorely disappointed with the offerings available..
So I built one myself..
Using Airtable (a cloud based database with iPhone/Android/OSX/Windows native apps) I was able to build this in a few hours.
I give you: Rocketry Flight Log (v0.3)
It has a library of each of my rockets including all the details you need to fill out a flight card, photos, and I can attach graphed launch sims from OR to keep track of predicted altitudes for different motor types:
I can record flights - the form I fill keeps track of whether an altimeter was fitted, launch, recovery deployment and landing results. I can attach the altimeter3 flight charts and data (this is done back at home on the desktop client)
You can create a library of recovery devices and launch sites, so when you record a flight, you can select the laundry chosen on the day and the site you launched from.
I am waiting for Airtable to implement a few features:
When they add GPS data types, I'll be able to add "Launch" and "Recovery" GPS coordinates straight from my phone on the day.
When they add custom form printing, I should be able to use a "plan a flight" setup to automate the printing of my flight cards...
All up, I am pretty happy with this solution, and best of all, it is COMPLETELY customisable, extensible and FREE!!
If anyone wants to have a try, let me know.. It's as simple as creating a free airtable account, installing the app and you can clone an empty copy of my setup and go from there..
Seen something that has been extremely useful in the rocketry world? Post it here and share your sources.
