This article applies to pilots that started off with 
CrewLounge PILOTLOG - Version 5.0

We have now released Version 5.2



CrewLounge PILOTLOG version 5.0 was released April 2019. Pilots reported multiple bugs that made the application unstable and unreliable. It was clear that the new logbook software was released prematurely and with insufficient testing.

We decided to review the app core logic and make some major changes.  We are proud to letting you know that we now release CrewLounge PILOTLOG version 5.2.  This new version was thoroughly tested and runs fine.  As with any other software, there are still a number of listed bugs and issues.  Our team continuously releases new updates.


Version 5.2 is a new app and requires a new installation on the desktop and on the mobile !
