I would like to ease my documentation of maintenance tracking and forecasting with some sort of database or spreadsheet. In the Part 135 world they have a few applications which are are quite expensive and well beyond what I need.  Anyone develop anything that they are currently using?  Just a simple spreadsheet?  Let us know what you got.  I prefer not to reinvent the wheel if something exists and is being used by anyone in the Zenith community.  Thanks!

Thanks Michel - in receipt via home email!


did you ever put together a spreadsheet to track zenith/ulpower maintenance schedule?



Hi Brian, have not got around to it yet...eventually...!  I am not a spreadsheet pro and no looking forward to the task. When I come up with something I'll post up.  Cheers

Michel, may I have copy of your excel file please? 


No prob, send me a PN. Seems not to work in the post

O.K. - finally got around to creating a MX schedule and tracking spreadsheet.  The only thing you need to do is fill in the Hobbs once you get it edited for you airframe and items.  I keep my working copy in the "Cloud" and simply enter my Hobbs after a flight and I can stay updated on current MX status. I did edit out my Beacon ID (transponder) since posting to a public forum.


My first attempt at Excel spreadsheeting, feel free to suggest/implement improvements...thanks!
