is a pilot logbook calculator
machine, to be used by pilots to perform simply and quickly all the
process to compute their flight time on each page of flight logbooks.
It is very simple to use: after starting the program, you will be
prompted to enter, for each line of your log, the value of flight hours
and then minutes (each one followed by the enter key). In this 0.4
version you will be prompted first to enter the number of lines you
(it should ne the number of line on your logbook).
Logcalc is now suitable by anyone needing to addition time data.
It is open source. Anyone who would like to help in logcalc development
can contact the project administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org
is designed to operate on
GNU/Linux machines. It is written in C so it's easy to compile the
source code for many OS. A MS Windows precompiled version (.zip archive
containing docs and a .exe file) is also available (Thanks, Xedak
Logsum was the 2-lines version of
Logcalc. It was included in the logcalc_0.X.tar.gz package, for X <
Now, having set a multi line choice, the logsum program is no more
needed. Just type "2" when prompted by logcalc.
Languages - translations
main language of the program is
English. Translations are kindly requested: please contact email@example.com
The first version of the
program had 18 lines of data (it requested
18 hours & minutes
groups) as in many JAA (European Joint Aviation Authority) logs. During
the development we created a customizable
version of logcalc.
many Countries do not permit the electronic
recording of flight data. So a program as logcalc is useful (I use it
with good results).
This is the project page hosted on logcalc.sourceforge.net
(this page) and
should be used by people who want to know more of the project or who
want to contribute.

: if you only want to
use the program you can go to the program

there is no relationship between version numbers: the last version is
actually 0.4 but some test versions hosted on the
linked above are labeled with 1.x
Files are available at the SourceForge File Release Page
Different releases are available:
- Logcalc_hm_en_x.y.tar.gz are Gunzip packages for hours and
- Logcalc_hms_en_x.y.tar.gz are Gunzip packages for hours, minutes
and seconds additions
- Logcalc_hm_en_x.y.zip are .zip packages for hours and
- Logcalc_hms_en_x.y.zip are .zip packages for hours, minutes
and seconds additions
need only one of the two versions
For the time only English (_en_) files are available.

to install logcalc
In the documentation

Some of the actions to be performed first
- Improve usability
- Develop a very fast graphic
user interface (but -very- fast, the
program is fast because it is very simple)
- Permit to the user to
correct wrong data inserted in the lines.
Help in writing, testing, translating and last but not least improving
the program is welcome. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Logcalc should be adapted for every logbook or similar data processing.
With the help of Xedak
we created a new version with the
possibility to add seconds too.
In the near future I hope
to develop versions for many activities, like divers and other
to use this page
On this page you'll find all information regarding this project. For

Two big news: we launched the new 0.4
version of logalc, with selectable number of lines. It should be
available for download in a few days. We are writing the same code in
two ways: packages called logcalc_hm_en_0.X.tar.gz are designed to add
data in hours and minutes format; packages called
logcalc_hms_en_0.X.tar.gz, are designed to add hours, minutes and
seconds. this concept is the same for Windows users.

new version of the logbook calculator is under development. It will be
useful to calculate data with seconds too (hh.mm.ss). In the next days
a first release should be available. Thanks to Xedak for
modifying the code.
