Things you need to know when buying gifts at

We sell various products which have constraints such as licensing for the recipient versus you, the shopper. Click here to read an article that outlines in full detail the different considerations for buying gift items. For example, when buying a software license such as for Logbook Pro Desktop or Route Browser, enter the gift recipient's name in the "License to" box as shown below and then click add-to-cart. The license will then be issued in their name and not yours.

If you need gift card or blank gift certificate forms to print to give as a gift click here to download from our downloads web page.

Gift Certificates make a great gift

Gift Certificate A great gift idea is to purchase gift certificates which you can designate any amount up to $500. Gift certificates are also required if you wish to purchase a subscription item such as Cloud Sync, Cloud Backup, or the Airline Schedule Importer as subscriptions must be linked to the user's account and therefore should be purchased by the user directly. Order a gift certificate in the amount of a subscription and then give the gift certificate to the recipient with instructions as to what the amount is intended for.

Facebook and Twitter address changes
Published 21 December 2013 02:28 PM

As we are reviving APDL with our new iOS app for the upcoming FAR 117 regulation changes we are moving away from product centric Facebook and Twitter pages and centralizing all content into our new NC Software Facebook and Twitter accounts.  No longer will we be using the /LogbookPro accounts but instead our new /NCSoftwareInc accounts.

Please LIKE our new Facebook page to receive notifications of our posts and we also suggest "subscribing" to the page as Facebook only notifies a limited number of "like'ers" unless we pay to promote the posts.  Visit to LIKE and subscribe to the new page and you'll see some fancy new artwork for our upcoming APDL for FAR 117 app.

For those that use Twitter which is also a mirror to publish notifications from our Facebook posts, FOLLOW our new Twitter account "NCSoftwarInc" at  

Thank you for your understanding while we make this important transition as we bring APDL back into our line up with the most anticipated and desperately needed app in the airline industry for the complex new regulations soon hit all airline pilots.

Logbook Pro Desktop 1.16 Released
Published 28 February 2013 03:30 PM
NC Software is excited to announce another FREE update (as all have been since 1998!) to its leading electronic pilot logbook software - Logbook Pro. Logbook Pro 1.16.0 is now available for all customers to update immediately and enjoy the numerous exciting new features and of course a few bug fixes. To update Logbook Pro now click Help / Check Web for Updates OR click here to download the free update immediately.

One of the major additions to 1.16.0 is the Summary Report. For our current and future airline pilots that have or will have an account, trying to get the numbers much less correct numbers can be a daunting task and without Logbook Pro, an impossible task! When you update Logbook Pro to 1.16.0 a data structure update will occur to support many new features but one of which is the extended Options/Aircraft configuration information. Most of the new columns are to support the Summary Report so be sure to go through your types and configure each one completely, as all should do anyways to get the most out of Logbook Pro's statistics and reporting. Run the report from Reports / Miscellaneous / Summary report and you will now save yourself countless hours and grief, you simply have to key in the numbers on the web site and you're done!

Logbook Pro now uses a new sign-in system so you no longer have to hunt down your cloud Account ID and Username. Simply login with your NC Software web site login (the same as and you're instantly connected to your cloud account to use cloud syncairline schedule importer, and cloud backup. On the top right of the menu area you will see a sign-in button you can click or go to Options / User Info or Cloud Sync / Settings as shown below to sign-in to your cloud account.

Options / Aircraft now has a new column (far right) titled "Active". When adding a new flight log entry there is no reason to have aircraft types in the drop down list that you flew many years ago and are no longer flying. Set the Active to unchecked for types you do not want listed for creating new flight log entries. This will not affect any other area of Logbook Pro such as statistics and reporting.

A new Cover Page is available in the reports menu like we use with our turn-key print jobs. You can now print your own cover pages as needed. In addition, when clicking the toolbar button on the combined tab in split-reports to insert a cover page and binder transitions you will get a prompt whether to use a blank or preformatted cover page, same as shown below. The report will use the name entered in Options / User Info in place of "NC Software" in the sample below.

Reports will now open in a zoom level of "Whole Page" to fill the screen as shown above.

Another new report "Aircraft Stats" is available under the Reports / Aircraft menu as shown below which shows your hours, flights, and last flown detail for each Aircraft you've flown.

With the new columns added to Options / Aircraft for the summary report we were also able to extend the filtering capability in the Analyzer. New filter fields (blue/top) such as shown below are available for you to turn on/off items to really drill down on data in Logbook Pro.

More revisions in outline form:
  • Added Cloud Sync / Test Connection button to test communications with the cloud sync system
  • All web links such as portals, and under the Online menu now open in your default browser instead of internal to Logbook Pro which uses a reduced functionality (aka limited) browser system
  • Clones can now sync with the cloud
  • Logbook Pro Palm and Pocket PC is no longer supported (APDL Palm / Pocket PC remains supported)
  • Typing two spaces at the end of the route cell such as RIC-DFW space space will automatically add a hyphen for you so you have RIC-DFW- and ready to enter the next fix. This is taken from the mobile iOS/Android apps by request.
  • All data areas now have duplicate sync protection when syncing from the cloud. Previously only flights supported this. Now you can sync Certificate/Ratings/History items entered on the device, edit them and they will not duplicate in Logbook Pro Desktop
  • Added "My Subscriptions" button on toolbar to instantly check the status of your subscriptions and include links to renew at any time (subscriptions are extended with each purchase, you can renew at any time)
  • Reorganized the menu/toolbars slightly
  • Changed menu/toolbar theme to "VS 2005" which can be changed to any desired in the View/Menu Style menu.
  • Improvements to reporting in NO DATA situations
  • Aligned date preset filters with summary bar date criteria
  • Fixed an issue where invalid date/time entries were entered in the OOOI field from apps when OOOI fields were not entered. Next cloud sync of data into Desktop will automatically fix prior entries.
  • Fixed an issue in the flight log reports where you could get a header and footer and no data rows in between.
  • Fixed an issue in the Logbook Explorer where the landings columns between day/night were showing crossed info
  • Other minor improvements too small to list

We highly recommend ALL users update to Logbook Pro Desktop 1.16.0 at your earliest convenience. This is our best release ever and has new and exciting features to help you as a pilot. Many of these new features and fixes came from outstanding feedback from our outstanding customers! If you have any questions or suggestions please contact us and we'll gladly assist you and also note your suggestions to make the products better for everyone.

Thank you for choosing Logbook Pro!
