PPR CARD (Multi Print Version)

Many airfields insist on PPR (Prior Permission Required) before your visit, but a quick call prior to departure (whether PPR is required or not), should be regarded as a great opportunity to gather valuable information about your destination airfield. The PPR Card (checklist) serves as a handy aide-mémoire to ask the basic information every pilot needs before take off. Simply download, double-side print and laminate the PPR Card document for a set of 10 reusable PPR Cards. We hope you find the cards useful and encourage you to share them with your fellow aviators.

FREE FLIGHT GUIDE (Leaflet Version)

The AviationLOGIC team has produced a FREE FLIGHT GUIDE for the General Aviation pilot.  The guide serves as a handy pre-flight checklist and is suitable for pilots of all skill levels.  The information contained in the guide was collected from many authoritative sources produced over the years, now assembled in one easy to read double-sided leaflet.  The guide provides links to other valuable information resources, and provides recommendations for cool pilot apps and tools that we believe will make your flying safer and more enjoyable. We hope you enjoy the guide and we encourage you to share it with your fellow aviators. ​Note:This particular version of the guide has been designed for printing as a double sided one page leaflet.

PILOT TIP
When flying VFR, you may want to extend your landing gear and trim before your downwind entry as this helps to slow down easing integration with any circuit traffic.

PILOT TIP
Engine failure? The procedure it pitch down to best glide, check your airspeed, trim to relieve workload, pick a suitable landing site, carry out your restart checks and if unable to start, unlatch the exit door, fuel to cut off, make your mayday call and set your transponder code.

PILOT TIP
Never be reluctant to declare an emergency where the safe outcome of your flight might be in doubt.

TEMPLATE VFR FLIGHT PLOG (Basic Version)

The AviationLOGIC team spent a little time designing a simple and easy to use flight PLOG suitable for General Aviation flights. We appreciate a Pilot's PLOG is a very personal thing, but we wanted to share ours in case you find it as useful as we do.  Much like our apps, our VFR Flight PLOG is easy to use and displays information in a clear way to help pilots find the information they need quickly. If you are unsure about any of the markings, terminology or how to use the PLOG, please don't hesitate to contact us using our contact form. We hope you find the template useful and encourage you to share it with fellow aviators.
