    I am a Qantas flight attendant and have for nearly 20years recorded sectors operated, aircraft registration, flight number and date.
    Short of creating a database from scratch, I am curious if there is an iPad app out there where I can record flown sectors, aircraft registration and great circle distance in order to slice and dice the data. For example track total distance, or total distance by registration number etc.

    Cool idea. Will ask around if there is anything out there for you...
    Can you provide typical data for each entry? Date, Flight #, Aircraft registration,...etc. What else?

    Here is a link for an aviation navigation app that many pilots use. Take a look. The app can be downloaded for free for 30 days to check it out...

    I use this app in my flight training and find it very useful. Most importantly...it has saved many a pilot from being lost.
