This help article demonstrates how to upload UgCS flight logs to your AirData account.
Downloading the AirData UgCS Sync Tool
To get started, please download the AirData Sync Tool to your computer. This tool will be run alongside the UgCS desktop application.
- Download for Windows: https://airdata.com/UgCS/AirDataSyncTool-1.0.3.exe
- Download for Mac: https://airdata.com/UgCS/AirDataSyncTool-1.0.3.tar.gz
Before using the utility, you may need to install the Java Runtime Environment (if it was not previously installed for other apps), available for free, here: https://java.com/en/download/
For Mac Only:
1) When opening the AirData Sync Tool on a Mac, you may receive a popup that says "AirDataSyncTool cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified", which will look like this:
So, to open the AirData Sync Tool, either shift+click or right-click on the application and select "Open", which opens a confirmation menu. Please click "Open" here to open the AirData Sync Tool.
To learn more about safely opening apps on your Mac, see this support article from Apple.
2) If you attempt to use the AirData Sync Tool without Java installed on your computer, you will receive a prompt to install the JDK. However, the popup incorrectly points you to the Adobe Flash Page - which is a known Mac issue. Instead, please visit this page to install Java: https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javase-downloads.html#javasejdk
Uploading UgCS logs
When you open the AirData Sync Tool, "admin" is entered for the "UgCS Login" and "UgCS Password" fields — please leave "admin" entered. These credentials simply allow you to connect with the local UgCS service installed and running on your local desktop.
AirData Token: your AirData Token is found under "My Account" -> "Auto Upload Token", or by clicking here.
Under "List of all vehicles", select the aircraft you would like to upload flight logs for. Select individual flights or choose a range of flights, and click on "Upload to AirData."
The flights will begin uploading, as indicated by the progress bar.
A confirmation screen will appear when the flights are finished uploading.
