How to setup the Wingman app for experienced pilots (already having ATPL)?

Wingman doesn't require you to digitise each and every flight from the beginning of your career. You can start your digital logbook journey at any point with just carrying forward your totals, as you'd do while starting a new physical logbook.

We urge you to explore the app completely and it's essential that you take the time to setup the app fully, so that you eliminate all kinds of manual calculations going forward from this point.

  1. Setup all the settings in the app via the settings page  - Default Settings in Wingman app
  2. Carry forward your totals from your physical logbook to Wingman. It's the same as if you were starting a new physical logbook
