中国民用航空局信息中心



You can import your flights from the Yunzhi Zhao CAAC app into CrewLounge AERO with a single click of the button.  


Select your company from the Settings - Airline Interface page in the CrewLounge PILOTLOG mobile or desktop app.  If your airline is not listed, contact us and we'll have it added for you.



How to Import


There is no export function from the CAAC app (if there is, please let us know).  

We have therefore built an OCR (Optional Character Recognition) interface to read data from the screenshots that you make from the CAAC app.


Proceed as follows :


  1. make a screenshot from the CAAC app - Logbook page  (see samples below)
  2. share your screenshot with CrewLounge PILOTLOG (mobile app or desktop app)


You need internet access for the interface to work.



What Screenshot ?


You can grab a screenshot from the COMPLETE flight detail page (cyan text color), or the NOT COMPLETE flight input page (black text color).  Both screenshots work.



COMPLETE


  • Chinese characters in the JOB description are automatically processed as PIC, Co-Pilot, PICUS or Cruise Relief function time.
  • Chinese characters in the PILOT names are import as is
  • Add your own name (as shown on this page) in the Roster Alias field for Pilot SELF in the CrewLounge PILOTLOG - Tables - Pilot List, in order for the application to recognize yourself.






NOT COMPLETE


  • The interface cannot interpret the green option bullets.  All selections will be ignored.
  • Optionally, in order for the interface to interpret your selections, you must cross-out the other options and submit your image with only the text from your selections.  By preference use black color to cross-out the text, as illustrated in the image below
  • The interface appears to sometimes overlook the "PF" selection, since the text shows as "P F"
