The first set of icons will display red or green depending on if the data has been entered for the leg or not.

The second set of icons will not change color but they each have a number next to them.
- The group of people indicates the passenger count.
- The credit card indicates the number of expenses entered by the logged in user.
- The filled in circle indicates the number of crew services

If a crew member wants to make sure they have the most up-to-date information, they can always pull the screen down and the app will run a sync.
Access Flight Log
In order to access the full flight log, click on the leg. The first view that you are taken to is the Summary. The various areas of the flight log can be accessed through by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the app.
The number of options that show on in the initial view will depend on your device size but there is a more option that will display the rest of the pages.
Anywhere you see the check mark icon in the top right corner it is to save the data on the page.
Anywhere you see the plus icon is to add a new record.
Details within a Flight Leg
The Summary view displays high-level information regarding the leg and trip including the customer, doc number (if applicable), leg status, lead passengers, trip contacts, departure/arrival FBO's, crew and aircraft times. If your operation utilizes the crew release code, this will also display and can be saved by the crew member.
Easily designate whether a passenger has boarded. The Passenger view lists all of the passengers on the leg including nickname, weight, date of birth and gender. If your operation utilizes the TSA vetting functionality, the watchlist results will display at the bottom of the view. In order to mark a passenger as boarded, swipe their name to the left and click Boarded: Yes.
Once a crew member designates the passenger(s) boarded, the following displays on the Dispatch/Operations view.
The log view is the heart of the flight log and allows users to enter all of the pertinent flight times, take off/landings, approaches, fuel details, delays and weight and balance details. Once the information is entered, the checkbox icon in the top right corner will save the information. If no internet connection is present, the data will be stored offline and then automatically synced when a connection is established. Users can easily enter the Out/Off and Takeoff details at the beginning of the flight, finish the remaining log field when they land and then save it all at once.
Input pre-leg calculated weight and balance data for data capture within the trip.
Expenses can be inputted through a trip and through the My Expenses section. If the expense is related to a trip, access the flight leg the expense occurred on.
Tap the check mark to save.
The duty times view allows crew members to enter their duty times for the day. Duty time does not have to be entered for each leg of a trip but rather can be entered once with the start/end times that encompass multiple legs.
The crew and passenger services view will display service requests including catering, lodging and ground transportation for passengers and crew independently. These details are read-only and cannot be modified in the app.
The notes view allows crew members to add internal note pertaining to that leg which will be displayed in the trip for the operations team to view.
The FRAT view allows crew members to enter the risk items for a leg. The total FRAT score will update dynamically as items are checked off even before it is submitted and if the score goes over a critical company level threshold, the color will change to orange or red.
The discrepancy view will list all open discrepancies and deferrals on the aircraft with details on the user that reported it and the date it was reported. Users that report discrepancies through Avianis can do so by clicking the plus icon in the top right corner. Discrepancies can only be modified by the user that entered them into the system.
The events view allows crew members to add events such as VOR checks and tracking statistics to a flight log.
The purpose view allows crew members to document purposes for a flight and allocate flight hours for each purpose for billing.
