    Version 2.0
    When pilot's are deleted, the pilot's name is placed in the
        Flight.Info field.  This way, when the flight log is
        viewed, instead of seeing PILOT HAS BEEN DELETED, the
        pilot's name will be displayed with the phrase DELETED
        after the pilot's name
    There is now a form that allows the user the option to save or delete
    flights when a pilot is deleted.  This form appears each time a pilot
    is deleted (form can be disabled) and there is also a menu item
    on the MISC menu.

    Version 1.9
    When viewing a pilot screen and then going to VIEW ACCOUNT, posting a
    payment would cause PILOT NOT IN DATABASE to appear.  This was because
    the pilot number was negative to indicate a credit rather than a debit.
    However, the pilot finding routine couldn't find a negative pilot number.
    Its fixed.  (This had to do with allowing posting of credits to all
    pilot accounts).

    Added a search function to selecting pilots (similar to that when
    using the PILOTS screen). 

10/16/01  fixed this
(When previewing a statement, if you go back and change the start date, the new start
date doesn't work, it uses the old start date intead.)  

    The following was fixed
(When printing account statements (single) use print dialog box (this is already done
when printing other reports.  Also when printing other reports, when clicking CANCEL,
a message box pops up stating CANCEL WAS SELECTED.  )

    Version 1.8
    Allow payments to all active accounts (used to be debits only)

    Version 1.7
    Dues feature is working well, but when posting dues, it would report
    an erroneous total amount (in a message box).  Fixed this.

    Fixed a bug which would generate an error if user didn't select an mdb
    file from the dialog box.

    Added a command button when view aircraft list (under AIRCRAFT)
    Now the mdb data file can exist anywhere.  It will be in the data directory
    by default, but can exist elsewhere.  This will be useful for networking.

    Fuel purchases - prompt user to enter 3 letter identifier for airport

1/13/01 Version 1.6
     - still could get erroneous hourly rate if user pressed ESC when
    entering flights (recalc was bypassed).  Fixed this

    New pilots get the default dues rate.

    Dues can now be posted manually
    Can now turn on/off dues feature for all pilots
    Can set default dues rate for all pilots

    Corrected an error - if entering flights and auditing earlier flights,
    then clicking SAVE (without pressing ENTER), the grid wouldn't be
    recalculated correctly - this would cause the edited flight to
    computer an erroneous hourly rate.  The rest of the flights would
    be OK.  Fixed this.

    Cleaned up the start routine (was asking questions on each aircraft even
    when CANCEL was clicked)

 Version 1.5
    Flight Log Audit was causing too many questions on start up (message box
    was popping up for each plane). Fixed this
