Crew Chief Pro Users

Before you begin

Crew Chief Pro users – you can purchase a subscription to the Time Slip Simulator (TSS), which integrates directly with your electronic logbook.

With a button push, you can transfer run details from your electronic logbook into the Time Slip Simulator and analyze your runs.

To purchase a subscription, please visit Crew Chief Pro and return to this page when you’re ready to install the TSS and get started.

Download and install

First, you need to download the TSS installation package to your computer. Follow the instructions provided by Crew Chief Pro.

Once downloaded to your computer, install the TSS by double-clicking on the installation package. Follow the prompts, and the TSS will be installed on your computer.

If you see a warning message when you run the installer that says “Windows protected your PC”, click the “more info” link and press the “Run Anyway” button.

This is just your computer being overly protective when installing an application you downloaded online.

If you use the Microsoft Edge browser and you’re having problems downloading the installation file, please watch this video.
