Aircraft Notes:
You can keep your own personal notes for each aircraft.  These notes can be anything you like...upgrades, adjustments, issues or anything else you can think of. As of version 3.1.0, notes have become individual items, each with their own independent attributes.  Note alarms were also introduced in v3.1.0.  You can use these alarms to remind you of important events such as charging your radio receiver pack or performing routine maintenance. These alarms can be set to trigger after a specified number of calendar days or number of  flights.
