How to Save your Flight

Firstly you need to start using GPS Logbooks on your phone! If you haven't already done so, download the app here, and start using it. Once you've made some tracks or flights, save them using the below instructions.

Remember, Flight data that is not saved will be removed after 60 days.

A. Go to the Save Flight page

B. Choose an altitude mode

Change to 'Clamp to Ground' if you are showing a ground based activity, such as driving or walking. This will ensure the line will stay on the ground.
