Configuring Acronyms

An acronym may be configured to denote since new or since overhauled values on logbook entries. The acronym configuration is unique to each logbook type and timer combination. For example:

  • For AIRFRAME logbook entries: tach since new is commonly configured as AFTT
  • For ENGINE logbook entires: tach since overhaul is commonly configured as SMOH

Browse to a logbook type to edit the acronym configuration.
