How do I log cross country time in Logbook?

Logging of cross country time is a heavy topic in the aviation community. Regulatory needs vary based on the category of aircraft, the type of operation you fly for, and many other variables.

ForeFlight Logbook gives you the power to track your cross country time as you see fit.

We recommend using the Cross Country and Distance fields consistently for all flights, then adding custom fields as needed.

For example:

  Cross Country: Log the time for all point-to-point flights.

  Distance: Track the total route distance (ForeFlight Logbook calculates this for you).  

  Custom Fields: Add a “XC > 50nm” field for FAA training requirements.
