Logbook Bundle

The LogTen Pro iPad app and Mac software from Coradine Aviation Systems allow pilots to log their flight time digitally.

A powerful filter tracks totals based on most any attribute of flight. The app syncs with LogTen Pro for the iPhone and Mac.

Tire Pressure Gauge

A new digital, full-range tire pressure gauge from Tool Testing reads in PSI, InHg, Oz/SqIn, Inches or Feet/H2O, Kg/SqCm, Kpa and Bar, with ½% tolerance and as fine as 0.1 PSI resolution. It also holds peak readings and features a built-in bleeder valve. The TTL-300-DTG-K comes in a protective fitted rubber “skin.” Angled and straight chucks mounted on tough flexible hose handles allow comfortable readings of virtually all Schraeder-valve pneumatic wheels and tubes. Quick-disconnect couplings allow instant chuck change-out. Because tires can look different under various conditions (dusty, clean, wet), the TTL-300-DTG-K includes a tire tread-depth gauge. The kit is housed in a rugged foam-fit plastic case. Contact: Tool Testing Lab, (937) 898-5696, www.ttlcal.com.
