FAA 14 CFR Part 91, 91, 117, 121, and 135 Currency Tracking

Yes! Safelog provides, built-in, deep analysis tools for professional pilots flying under 14 CFR Part 117, 121, and 135. These can be found under "Currency.", as can a tool for general FAA currency (including EVFS currency) plus night vision currency and the special night turbine currency of 14 CFR 61.57(e).

As of this writing, Safelog computes the following per relevant category class (ASEL, AMEL, Helicopter, etc.)

Additionally ...

  • Yes! Safelog can automatically generate FAA Form 8710 / IACRA - both the actual form and the data you need for it.
  • Yes! Safelog can automatically compare your logbook against aeronautical experience requirements for most airplane and helicopter checkrides (practical tests).
  • Yes! You can add your own custom currency rules - regulatory, insurance, corporate, club, etc.
  • Yes! Safelog has built-in calculators to help you with major airline applications
    • Airline Apps
    • Pilot Credentials

    • UPS

* the exact currency items that Safelog can compute for you depends on your logbook setup (what fields you have turned on and have data for), what aircraft you fly, and a few other things. For example, Safelog can't compute duty time compliance for you if you don't log duty time. The list here represents a snapshot in time of some of the FAA currency items that Safelog auto-calculates. The list is ever evolving. You can see the current currency calculations by logging into SafelogWeb.com (a trial account is fine) and looking under 'currency.'

** this item is conveniently computed via more than one method to allow you to choose the one that best applies to your logbook and career specifics.
