 Introducing FlightFiles - Aircraft Maintenance Tracking Made Easy

IowaComputerGurus is excited to announce the general availability of our new Web-Based Aircraft Maintenance Tracking system.  Designed to take the headache out of tracking important maintenance operations with single-engine aircraft.  The idea driven from the cumbersome tracking processes that I personally encountered when going from student pilot to aircraft owner.  I wanted the ability to quickly and easily see what needed to be done with my plane, when it needed to be done, and in a manner that was reliable.  I did not want others using my plane to need to remember to send a picture of the flight log in the plane, or provide other information to me to stay on top of things.

We have been busy here at IowaComputerGurus for a while as we have been heads-down working on a massive set of updates to the documents, modules, tools, and resources that we make available on this site. In addition to a major update for our brand and visual appeal. It is with great honor that I reveal to you the fruits of our labor from the past months!
