Pilots using the Jeppesen Aviator EFB can import flight data straight into their logbook, with a single click of the button.  Currently we support the following airlines:


  • Air Baltic
  • Korean Air


If your company is not listed, please do contact us (here).


For almost all companies listed above, we also offer an import function to retrieve your scheduled roster from the crew web portal. We therefore advise pilots the following work method:


  • download your planned roster with the online interface for your company in the CrewLounge CONNECT app
  • import your actual flight data with the Jeppesen Aviator EFB interface in the CrewLounge PILOTLOG app


When you download your roster with CrewLounge CONNECT, the events will also appear in your CrewLounge PILOTLOG logbook, if Event Sharing is turned On in My CrewLounge - My Profile - Airline Interface  (login here)



How to import from Jeppesen Aviator?



You can install CrewLounge PILOTLOG on the company iPad, or you can use your personal device (iOS, Android, Windows, Mac).


Proceed as follows:

1- configure your CrewLounge PILOTLOG app
2- export the PDF file from the Jeppesen Aviator app

3- import the file with CrewLounge PILOTLOG  


How to configure PILOTLOG?



Open the CrewLounge PILOTLOG app:


1) on the Settings - Airline page, select the interface Jeppesen Aviator EFB for your company

  • fill-out the different settings that come with this interface


2) on the same page in the Import Events section, make sure that Historical Data is turned-On for FLIGHTS 

  • if you run CrewLounge PILOTLOG on multiple devices (iPhone/iPad, Android, Mac, Windows) then verify the settings on ALL your devices (just to make sure that everything got synched)
  • this interface cannot generate a DUTY around the FLIGHT as the data is received and processed flight-by-flight.  If you record Duties in CrewLounge PILOTLOG, you must manually create the DUTY on the Duty page.




3) on the Pilot List page, edit pilot SELF and insert your company ID number or lettercode as Employee ID

  • omitting this step may result in your name and Pilot SELF both being listed on the same flight.  Continue with this article (read here) to clean-up your logs.


4) on the Settings - Flight Logging page, verify AUTO LOAD TASK 

  • the Jeppesen Aviator EFB does not mention who was PF (Pilot Flying) / PNF-PM (Pilot Monitoring).  You can select any of the automatic options from the Settings - Flight Logging page. You can also edit the flight after the EFB has been processed, and manually set PF/PM for your flight.
  • the combination of PF/PM with night time will set Takeoff/Landing Day/Night.  Enable Automatic Night Time calculation on the Settings - Flight Logging page and select the calculation method in line with your aviation regulations.
