- Q: If I sign up, is the access password-protected or public?
- A: Your logbook will be publicly visible. As of 2021,
crew names can be protected by a simple shared password mechanism.
- Q: What happens if an aircraft takes off at a subscribed airfield,
then lands on a non-subscribed one, or vice versa?

takeoff and landing will be recorded with full data. The 'external'
field must be covered by an OGN station providing data to KTrax for
this to work.
