How to use GPS Logbooks

Viewing Flights

There's two main areas of GPS Logbooks, being Live Flights, and Saved Flights.

1.
Live Flights allow you to watch others flying in real-time. The main Live Flights page will show the latest position of all live flyers around the globe. You can then zoom in to see the detailed path they took using the control panel on the right of the map.
2.
Saved Flights are snippits of flights someone has done, and have saved them. A saved flight will give you extra flight info such as max speed, height, distance and a description. Registered users can also leave comments on a flight.
