Throughout the years, pilots and instructors have used many different standards to identify the type of aircraft flown in a logbook entry. Your earliest entries may refer to “PA28,” “Archer,” and “PA-28-181”...all for the same tail number. ForeFlight Logbook aims to standardize this more, which is why aircraft entries have three different identification fields:
Type Code: Here you can enter the aircraft’s flight plan code.
-The code can be found at this page on icao.int
-Type Code may cover multiple models, such as “M20P” for Mooneys
-Consistency with this field will yield the best reporting later
Make: This is the aircraft’s manufacturer.
Model: This field allows you to track specific models and variants.
-Twin Otter (Floats)
