Space Weather and Aurora Predictions

ATMOSPHERE & SPACE

FlightLog logbook app includes a tool to visualize your chances of seeing Northern Lights. Click on WEATHER > SPACE WEATHER. ANDROID : May have unexpected results

Space Weather and Kp

The first row is the Space Conditions including RADIO BLACKOUT, SOLAR RADIATION STORMS and GEOMAGNETIC STORMS. Colors are indicating the storm level -1 to 5 : refer to NOAA SPACE WEATHER SCALES explanations- ), and by taping on any field you'll have the storm's consequences displayed. Below is the CURRENT Kp. Kp is the planetary index which starts at 0 and as the geomagnetic (aurora) strength increases, so too does the Kp number. So Kp 0 being a very weak or none existent aurora, right through to 9 being a major geomagnetic storm with auroras likely in France and even Northern Spain.

Aurora Map

Then a map is showing best areas on world map where are the better chances of viewing an aurora (areas displayed are corresponding to a chance > 15%) Below is the 3 days forecast of Kp. All datas are from NOAA/SWPC (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration / Space Weather Prediction Center) See also:

Fatigue Risk Management

Sleepiness model

FlightLog comes within an elaborated Fatigue module.

Once your roster is imported, this module will show you all your flights to come.

The app is calculating the fatigue caused by your flights, using a bio-mathematical process called Three-Process Model (TPM) of Alertness, elaborated by Akersted.

TPM includes a Process C that represents sleepiness due to circadian influences and has a sinusoidal form with an afternoon peak, and a Process S that is an exponential function of the time since awakening. The third Process U that represents a 12-h period is associated with the afternoon reduction in alertness. The model also includes a sleep inertia function (process W) that initially reduces alertness at the time of waking up with an exponential recovery. The duty time is computed as : no sleep allowed 2.5h before flight and 2h after. The model also takes into account the jetlag : we modeled acclimatization to be made continuously, assuming a default daily rate of 30% of the difference between the acclimatized time and local time. Then the model is converted to match the Karolinska Sleepiness Scale (1-9 levels). You can setup your personal settings like age and sleeping type, setup your actual alertness level, and play with several options like activate jetlag, local night rest, setting up a nap on your next flight, in order to optimize your alertness at landing time and your rest at destination. Obviously the model, validated for crews (the study was partly funded by Vinnova Sweden (to Stress Research Institute) and partly by Jeppesen AB) is subject to individual differences and applies to 75% of the population.

True Altitude and True Speed

TRUE ALTITUDE

This is a module helping you to calculate your true margin within relief, according to real atmosphere. As real atmosphere differs from standar atmosphere, your true altitude depends on QNH and temperature.

  1. set present FL and SAT to calculate ISA T°. Then, lock ISA toggle.
  2. set QNH and MOCA altitude
  3. set FL to your level off altitude

TRUE SPEED

In a similar way, true speed depends on altitude : select your IAS indicated airspeed, altitude, QNH and temperature, and read your true airspeed.

Air Quality

Air Quality

FlightLog app comes with a Air Quality map showing different pollution criterias:

CO (Carbon Monoxide)

Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal air poisoning in many countries. The greatest sources of CO to outdoor air are cars, trucks and other vehicles or machinery that burn fossil fuels. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, but highly toxic.

Particulate matter < 2.5µm

Particulate matter are fine inhalable particles, with diameters that are generally 2.5 micrometers and smaller. Particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter, also known as fine particles or PM2.5, pose the greatest risk to health.

Ozone O3

Ozone, or trioxygen, is an inorganic molecule with the chemical formula O3 is ground-emitted by cars, power plants, industrial boilers, refineries, chemical plants, and other sources chemically react in the presence of sunlight..There is a great deal of evidence to show that ground-level ozone can harm lung function and irritate the respiratory system.

Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)

Nitrogen dioxide is introduced into the environment by natural causes, including entry from the stratosphere, bacterial respiration, volcanos, and lightning. These sources make NO2 a trace gas in the atmosphere of Earth, where it plays a role in absorbing sunlight and regulating the chemistry of the troposphere, especially in determining ozone concentrations. NO2 is a reddish brown gas that is emitted from all combustion engines. There are two main nitrogen based compounds that are emitted from combustion engines: NO2 and nitric oxide (NO). Chronic exposure to NO2 can cause respiratory effects including airway inflammation in healthy people and increased respiratory symptoms in people with asthma. NO2 creates ozone which causes eye irritation and exacerbates respiratory conditions, leading to increased visits to emergency departments and hospital admissions for respiratory issues, especially asthma.

Sulfur Dioxide (SO2)

Sulfur dioxide is a gas. It is invisible and has a nasty, sharp smell. About 99% of the sulfur dioxide in air comes from human sources. The main source of sulfur dioxide in the air is industrial activity that processes materials that contain sulfur, eg the generation of electricity from coal, oil or gas that contains sulfur. Sulfur dioxide affects human health when it is breathed in. It irritates the nose, throat, and airways to cause coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, or a tight feeling around the chest. The effects of sulfur dioxide are felt very quickly and most people would feel the worst symptoms in 10 or 15 minutes after breathing it in.

Air Quality Index

  FlightLog Air Quality Index The app shows a global Air Quality Index, calculated by World Air Quality Index following NowCast as defined by the US-EPA 2016 standard : 0(GOOD) to +300(BAD) with the main pollutant. Below are the index related to each pollutant. The number is the AQI according to your GPS location. By taping on the field, you can have detailled source and update data time, as detailed health implications. The data comes from 10000 air quality stations around the world.

US-EPA 2016 standard

 
AQIAir Pollution LevelHealth ImplicationsCautionary Statement (for PM2.5)
0 - 50GoodAir quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no riskNone
51 -100ModerateAir quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
101-150Unhealthy for Sensitive GroupsMembers of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected.Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
151-200UnhealthyEveryone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effectsActive children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid prolonged outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion
201-300Very UnhealthyHealth warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid all outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit outdoor exertion.
300+HazardousHealth alert: everyone may experience more serious health effectsEveryone should avoid all outdoor exertion

Import your Log

Import your Log

You can import you old logbook into FlightLog in order to have all your flights, although it's not recommended.

Importation modules are compatible with LogTen Pro, MCC PilotLog, RosterBuster, PilotLog.uk.

You can also import any csv file, with column matching.

LOGTENPRO

  1. Go to SYNC > Dropbox and login with your Dropbox account.
  2. Within your LogTen Pro app (OS or IOS), export your logbook with the following options selected : Export > Export Flights (Tab) and save the file in your Dropbox in the Applications>FlightLog Sync folder (it's better to first SAVE your log in Dropbox as the app will create automatically the folder for you). You can do the same for your aircrafts list (Export Aircraft option). Please check your file is named "Export Flights.txt" or "Export Aircraft.txt". NOTE : do not export the file "aircraft-types" in your Dropbox folder. Then in your FlightLog app, go to SYNC tab > Dropbox, and you should see buttons to import flights and aircrafts. If not, please check your exported files are in the right folder.

MCC PILOTLOG & PILOTLOG.uk

  1. Go to SYNC > Dropbox and login with your Dropbox account.
  2. Export your mcc logbook as a CSV file. Rename it as "Export Flights.csv" Save it in your Dropbox in the Applications>FlightLog Sync folder.

ROSTERBUSTER

  1. Go to SYNC > Dropbox and login with your Dropbox account.
  2. Export your Rosterbuster logbook as a CSV file. Save as it in your Dropbox (don't rename it) in the Applications>FlightLog Sync folder. Then in your FlightLog app, go to SYNC tab > Dropbox, and you should see buttons to import flights. Your aircrafts will be imported also. If the buttons don't show up, please double check your exported files are in the right folder.

ANY .CSV IMPORT

If you have an other logbook software, or even your own Excel file, you can try to import it within FlightLog logbook.
  1. Export/Convert your logbook in .csv format.
  2. Rename it to MANUAL.csv
  3. Arrange eventually your data to better fit the following format.
  4. Save it in your Dropbox in the Applications>FlightLog Sync folder (it's better to first SAVE your log in Dropbox as the app will create automatically the folder for you)
  5. in FlightLog app go to : SYNC>Dropbox and press MANUAL IMPORT. If the button doesn't appear, check that your csv file is in the right folder.
  6. Match the right fields then press IMPORT. The blue fields are mandatory.

Recommended format for importation:

DATE : YYYY-MM-DD

END DATE : YYYY-MM-DD

TYPE : "FLIGHT" / "SIMULATOR"

FROM / TO : IATA CODE (eg. CDG)

TIMES : HH:MM

Note : It's not recommended to import your old logbook : stats will not be available and it can generate some bugs as logbooks data are not in same format.

It's far more recommended to log your total flight time in SETTINGS tab, under  SETUP TOTAL FLIGHT TIME.

Time Dilation

What is Time Dilation ?

Is it true pilots are traveling in time?

Actually, yes, and I'm not talking about jetlag... you can travel in time, not your OWN time of course, but OTHERS' time. This thanks to a concept known as gravitational and velocity time dilation, explained by Einstein’s theories of General and Special relativity. The absolute Time doesn't exist, everyone has his own universe line. As you can travel different distances to go from A to B, you can travel different durations. Depending of your speed and gravity. Your life has always the same duration (for yourself), but not for motionless people. For these people, by travelling you are aging slower.

Unfortunately, the time travel experienced by you or an astronaut in International Space Station is so small that it’s hardly noticeable, sometimes even measured by picto seconds - that is, one trillionth, or one millionth of one millionth of a second, or 0,000000000001 seconds. But it is nevertheless time travel, and it will accumulate during the course of your life.

So as a pilot flying at Mach 0.8 or greater, wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a way for you to keep track of your accumulated progress as a time traveler? This FlightLog app help you do that for the fun part...

Some explanations

There are actually two types of time dilation:

  1. Relative velocity time dilation
  2. Gravitational time dilation

This app calculates both. You have just to activate the toggle in SUMMARY/SETTINGS tab.

  1. Flying at high speed makes you aging less quickly than your neighbors staying in their garden. You'll come back home younger than if you had stayed (depending on which direction you fly, due to Earth spinning)
  2. But unfortunatly, you fly at high altitude, 10 kilometers or so, making the gravity weaker than on ground : you are aging more quickly at high altitude than on earth... Gravity slows down the time : did you know Earth's center is two years younger than its surface ?

This app will merge these two effects for each flight. The app calculates the orthodromic distance and your speed to compute the velocity time dilation, taking into account the bearing of flight and the latitude. The app also calculate the gravitational time dilation using an average cruising altitude of 11 km. You can check the cumulated effect by month, year, and all time.
