I'm considering upgrading to Logbook Pro Professional, but nowhere on your website can I find any information about what I will gain for the extra money. Please provide some insight.


You can find the differences at this link http://www.nc-software.com/Logbook-Pro-Flight-Log-Software-for-Pilots

Here is a summary

"FAR 121 and FAR 135 features"

Care to expand on this a little? This tells me virtually nothing about the capabilities...
These are screenshots from the mobile app which gets its information from these respective areas on the desktop software. (Not at a computer right now)

These features track the typical legality requirements of FAR 121 and 135. To my knowledge, 121 isn't used anymore since implementation of FAR 117. For airline pilots flying under FAR 117 we are currently developing APDL (Airline Pilot's Daily Log) for iOS devices which is expected to release soon. Http://nc-software.com/APDL

Ok, I'm not interested in the mobile app, just the capabilities of the desktop app. I fly 121, it sounds like you're saying there is no advantage to me getting Professional version then....
Aside from the 121 and 135 tracking, you would gain the ability to have Logbook Pro installed on 2 computers at once and the ability to sync the entries between those computers.
There is also an AirlineApps summary report in the professional edition that assists you in filling out AirlineApps applications by determining all the complex calculations that AirlineApps wants you to enter. My apologies for not mentioning that the first time
