Hi Dean-

I'm wondering... why is knowing when the regulation changed of interest?

I know you are developing logbook software.

But anybody sitting for an exam today will need to satisfy today's regs.

I suppose you could use it to verify that somebody actually satisfied the requirements on the day that he/she took the checkride. But that doesn't seem like a feature very many folks would use.

Just wondering....

I was curious because I added a logbook feature that computes XC hours based on the distance between landing points, and I was considering qualifying the 25/50nm requirement by effective date, so that my logbook summary would show that I had 500+ XC hours (based on the 25nm requirement) when I took my ATP ride.

It turned out to be too much of a hassle, and so now my logbook summary shows two columns for XC hours: one based on a landing at a different airport [the 14 CFR 61.1(b)(3)(i) definition, and is what my paper logbook shows], and one based on a leg of more than 50nm [the 14 CFR 61.1(b)(3)(ii & vi) definition for meeting rating requirements].

With these two computations, I had 883 and 387 XC hours, respectively, when I took my ATP ride. Of course, I met the 500+ requirement (based on 25nm) at the time of that ride.

Note that certain other FAR requirements for XC time (eg, 14 CFR 135 & 141) are not for a rating, and for those, the 14 CFR 61.1(b)(3)(i) definition is operative.

The difference is substantial, especially for CFIs. For me, it's now 2045 vs 1170 hours.
