Arrow FAR 117 Duty Time App

I wanted to share a free resource that I built for pilots that are using or trying to learn the new FAR 117 Duty Time rules. It is a multi-platform app.

Downloads:


Use the webapp above for use on a desktop, iPhone, or any other device
The iPhone & iPad versions will be available on the app store shortly (awaiting approval from app stores)

The Part 117 Flight Time Duty Time app helps pilots calculate their duty times, max flight times, rest requirements, and more.

This app has a great learning feature: Click on the "i" icons to view details that help you learn about the new 117 regulations.

Features:
Free and no ads!
The easiest 117 app on the market
FAR 117 compliant calculations
Saves select user inputs (ie: # of crew)
For use with both augmented and unaugmented operations
Takes into account rest class
Time zone calculations
14 CFR 117 document with search function
FAR 117 Tables with active highlighting based on user inputs
Outputs: Max Flight Time, Max Duty Time, Latest Off Duty Time, Do not takeoff after time, and more.
Email results to your chief pilot or yourself for a record.

This app does not include union/company specific contract limitations.

Also note that this app does not include the ability to store or calculate weekly, monthly, and yearly FDP totals. This ability may be included in a future update.

If you find bugs you can contact me at: [email protected]

I hope you like this resource!
-Josh

Default FAR 117 Duty Time App

Awesomesauce, just what I was looking for since ALPO doesn't want to share with non-ALPO pilot groups. Thanks!

All platforms will be updated with some added functionality (extension calculations) and bug fixes soon. Please let me know if you find any bugs or would like changes by emailing [email protected] (not through app store comments).

Also, ratings help ★★★★★!

That's true. He may have meant that the ALPA one requires you to be an ALPA member to use it; which not everybody is.

Josh, I don't see that disclaimer other than a very generalized statement. Browsing through both, yours looks a lot user friendly! Thks

Wanted to let you all know that more functionality has been added to the app. The best being extension calculations.

Version 1.0.2 - Updates
• Now does extension calculations! (user suggestion, thanks!)
• Enhanced Short Call reserve calculations and extensions
• Updated some language to closer align to the FARs
• Increased Split Duty Period guidance and usability
• Updated Augmented Crew notes

Version 1.0.2 is live on Android. iOS and WM8 will be out within the week (after they are approved).
