You must first choose the aircraft you wish to assign the flight logs contained in the import file to. You can also choose to import three additional object. Be warned that as in importing other objects flight log will import all the objects as new items. It has no way of know the the fuel in the import file is the same as the fuel in your own database. If there are fields, fuel, or pilots in the import file that are the same as the ones in your database you will end up creating duplicates of those items.

Under accessory options you can choose to create accessory history records for all the flight records imported. Flight log will ignore all the accessory history records that may or may not be in the import file.
