Pilot Rescue Flight Form, downloadable

Postby admin on Mon Feb 22, 2010 3:19 am

Hi All,

On our homepage, we have a Pilot form for your use to keep track of each rescue flight you do. One of our fantastic pilot volunteers, Russell, thought it would be better to make a form that you can fill out online and then print it out rather then handwriting all the info. Thank you Russell, for creating this for pilots to use to keep track of their flights. This is a great tool for your records.

I would like to suggest a revision to the published form to track Hobbs time rather than Tach time. Most flying clubs use Hobbs time to bill airtime because it is more accurate than Tach time and will always be higher than Tach time. Hobbs time tracks hours starting from the time the engine starts to shutdown. If pilots are using the tach time to estimate fuel usage, then they are not getting the full deduction that they are entitled because that time will vary with RPM settings. My experience is that the tach time is about 80 percent of the Hobbs time. If the aircraft does not have a Hobbs meter pilots are better off using a stopwatch to track the time than using the tach.

I developed a revised electronic form that I would like to send to like to send to your admin for review and posting. The new form has a few drop down lists that will make it a little easier to prepare; it does calculations to compute flight costs and automobile mileage; and it supports digital signatures (that all participants can obtain instantly and free). The digital signatures will make the form easier to process via email. All of the features are set up to work with the Adobe Reader version 8 and later. Let me know how to send it to you.
