    new aircraft form

  4. Use Select a Customer panel to assign the customer to the aircraft.

  5. Use the Owner panel to assign the registered owner. The registered owner will be selected from the QMX Customer database.

If you choose the Create a New Customer option, the new customer form will open in a new window. After creating the customer return back to the aircraft form and proceed to select the customer and registered owner. The customer list will be loaded dynamically so there is no need to refresh the browser screen and lose your edits.

Step 2: Configure the Aircraft Timers

On the New Aircraft or Edit Aircraft form, select the timers appropriate for the aircraft. If a timer type is not available in the dropdown list, you may add a custom timer type by typing it into the timer selector.


Click the Save button at the bottom of the Aircraft New/Edit form to save the aircraft record to the database. After saving, you will be redirected to the Aircraft summary view.

Step 3: Configure the Aircraft Logbooks

After saving the aircraft, you will be redirected to the Aircraft detail view. You may also reach this view for any aircraft by locating the aircraft on the home screen, or Aircraft listing. Commonly the aircraft N-number is hyperlinked anywhere it is shown in Quantum MX, providing easy navigation to the Aircraft summary view.

Administrators: Logbook types may be created or edited by clicking Settings / Logbook Types. Ref. Logbook Entry Boilerplate
