My app isn't detecting takeoffs/landings - why not?

If you use the MyFlightbook app on a mobile device, it can detect takeoffs and landings for you.

The instructions below are for iOS (iPhone/iPad), but Android and Windows Phone work in a similar manner.
  • You must have location services on and enabled, granting permission to the MyFlightbook application to receive location updates. iOS asks for this permission when you first run the app, but if you need to double check, you can go into the Settings app, and then look under Privacy->Location Services to see if MyFlightbook has permission.
  • Make sure that the option to detect takeoffs and landings is turned on. In iOS, this is under "Settings" from the Profile tab. You should check as well that the takeoff speed is set to something appropriate for your aircraft.
  • To conserve battery, MyFlightbook only does detection when a new flight is in progress. A flight is considered "in progress" if it has an engine start time and/or a flight start time, and if it does NOT have an engine end time. You can find these times under "In the cockpit.
Troubleshooting Android
