For more information about position recorders, please check documents published on the FAI web page.

Flights are usually saved as IGC files and on most computers you do not have IGC viewer installed. Even your glider friends might not have installed the appropriate viewer program an all PCs. Because of that it is important that you can send flight in some more common format where the viewer is already installed or it is easily available and it is free of charge.


Google Maps is the most portable format. The Logbook will generate an HTML file which can be displayed in any web browser as long as you have an Internet connection.

Select file that you would like to Email to your friend and Logbook will select the appropriate IGC file and if requested change format to Google Earth or Google Maps.
