    My6151.com is preparing to launch our Beta program for an exciting new service and invites you to join!

    My6151.coms goal is that, as a general aviation pilot, you will never again have to manually record your flight activity to comply with FAR part 61.51. You no longer have to fill out your logs, just upload your flight activity from your mobile device running the My6151 Client to the My6151.com service and your logs will be created for you!

    The My6151.com web site provides the ability to view, maintain and print your logs. Log entries can be searched and filtered in various ways and well continue to enhance all website features to ensure a continued and growing value to our customers. Future features will include automatic maintenance and notifications for your currencies and many others that will be announced in the coming months.

    My6151.com utilizes your GPS and Internet capable smart phone or other mobile device to record details of each flight, upload them to the My6151.com service and automatically generate your log entries including but not limited to the information required by the FAA. My6151.com provides access to printed versions of your logbook and even allows you to schedule automatic email delivery of new log entries right to your inbox.

    We need some assistance by a variety of pilots, aircraft characteristics and flying tendencies to exercise our product and get feedback on the features weve included and plan to implement in the coming months.

    We are actively seeking current general aviation pilots that meet the following criteria:
    • You participate in a flight as pilot-in-command or second-in-command on a fairly frequent basis.

    • You own a Blackberry device with internet access and functioning GPS capabilities through either a built-in GPS receiver or a Bluetooth GPS receiver.

    • We will be expanding the product to support iPhone, Windows Mobile, Google/Android and other platforms in the near future. If you have a device other than a Blackberry, you may still register for the Beta however you will not be included in this first round. Instead you may be contacted when we prepare to launch for your device.

    Joining the Beta program will allow you early access to this new service. Entry into the Beta program is limited, and those accepted will receive discounted or complimentary service once My6151.com goes live.

    We encourage you to visit My6151.com and Signup for the My6151 Beta Program by clicking the Register button.

    If youd like more information on My6151.com, click the 'All the Rest' link and follow the links found on that page.

    You may also sing into My6151.com with our Demonstration user account to view some of the features available as a registered user. To do so, visit My6151.com and click the Login as Demo button. Please note that the functionality of the Demonstration user is limited and does not allow for any information on the site to be modified.

    The My6151.com Team thanks you for your support and welcomes all of you to learn more about My6151.com!

    We've received many emails asking for clarification on exactly what the steps are to use My6151, along with some other questions so I am posting this information here.

    After installing the client and creating an account, how is My6151 used?It doesn't get much simpler than this.

    CLICK ONE: You run My6151 from your mobile device (making sure you have your GPS receiver enabled). The main My6151 display allows you to choose the aircraft you are flying (from a list configured on My6151.com), the Pilot Type for the flight (PIC, SIC, etc) and the Instrument Type for the flight (None, Actual, Simulated).

    CLICK TWO: Click 'Start Flight'. Once the GPS acquires a fix on your location it will begin displaying your location information (Altitude, Lat, Lon, Speed, Heading) to the display and recording your flight progress.

    CLICK THREE: After you land, click 'End Flight'.

    That's it! You'll be prompted to upload and process the flight data which will create your log entries.

    After your logs are created you'll be asked if you want to review the new logs. If you choose to the My6151.com mobile site will be opened in your web browser where you can review the details of the logs, add notes and confirm them. Confirming a log is an acknowledgement that you have reviewed the new log and feel it is correct.

    Your new log entries will be emailed in PDF format daily, weekly or monthly depending on the option you select when setting up your profile on My6151.com.

    When can I start using My6151?
    If you own a blackberry you can start using My6151 within the next week. Simply register for the beta and we'll contact you soon with the details. If you have a different type of device the wait will be a little longer as we complete development for the Iphone, Windows Mobile and Google/Android platforms. Keep in mind you need a 'real' GPS receiver connected your device whether its built-in or an after-market bluetooth GPS receiver (these sell for about $80).

    How do I keep a printed logbook to meet FAA requirements?
    You configure how often your new log entries are emailed to you (in PDF format) in your My6151 Profile. You may choose to receive new log entries Daily, Weekly or Monthly or you may choose to not have them delivered at all. When you receive an email with new log entries, simply print the PDF and slide it in your logbook.

    How does this differ from other solutions available?
    Nearly all electronic logbook solutions still require you to maintain the logs. They just provide a different method for this maintenance instead of writing in your logbook. There are few solutions that add some level of automation to creating your logs but require you to purchase specific hardware devices. These solutions, in addition to requiring you to buy that specific device, still require you to perform manual synchronization with your computer. The computer operating systems are limited so many users don't have a method for getting the information off of this proprietary device. Printing of your logs is only available from the computer software that goes along with the device and is manual.

    My6151 improves on this model in several ways. First, it can be used on a growing list of mobile devices for several different mobile operating systems. The only requirement among those mobile devices is that you have a GPS receiver. Second, no synchronization with a PC is necessary. The instant your flight data is processed and your logbooks are created, your log entries are safe. Third, the automatic log entry delivery feature of My6151 means all you have to do is click 'Print' when you receive your logs via email and you're done. My6151 is the simplest and most complete solution.
