Re: Rank System Upgrades

I have just rone more quick question .... the type ratings do not seem to be transferring to pilots with the current rank. Am I supposed to check "Promotion Required" boxes? Intuition would say that's only for the next level. No, that should work, do you have an example of someone for who it is not?

Question2: how can we tell where a pilot is within their current rank in regards to flights/hours to next promotion?
No problem Sam, that information is now on the pilots 'logbook' page, including the percent of progress they are to the goal.

Re: Rank System Upgrades

I did add a new page called 'Assign Ranks' off of the 'View Ranks' page, but it shows raw hours from the flight reports, I did try to have it use the calculated 'standard hours' but I was finding it took too long to calculate all the hours for all the flights for all the pilots in larger airlines

Re: Rank System Upgrades

At the top of that new table are totals since they joined the airline. "Adjusted Hours" are hours after they have been reduced by the simrate, If the pilot is on a track that could lead to promotion, then another section appears below with the title "Promotion Progress" which as the number of flight...

Question: when we set flights/hours threshold, do both have to be achieved to attain the next level promotion or just one of them?
Both

Question: Is there a way you can put a "counter" on the pilots' profile page?

Flights Hours required to achieved next promotion

Just curious as I can see the question coming up "where am I in this rank?"
Actually, I already put it on the logbook page

Re: New Feature: Type VA Rank Updatges

Please, and I asked for the second time.... Where can I manage the automatic raks promotion? I can not find the option into the FSA management webpage. Where is the option, or the menu? Thanks again. Starting from your VA page select 'VA Ranks' in the options in the right. Next to each rank name is...

Re: More Cargo/Package to exotic Islands

I remember having a conversation with another pilot who wanted to fly a giant 747 into tiny remote locations, his opinion was that in the real world he would not be allowed to fly if the flight would not make money, he is flying it, therefore it should make money. My response was an officer of the a...

Re: Overweight, but why? B747F

This post was in the wrong section so I moved it.

Hard to say exactly with the information given, if your using the beta client when your over weight it should tell you which weight you are violating, be it MZFW, MLW or MTOW.

Re: More Cargo/Package to exotic Islands

The package system does look at the recent flights when deciding to add packages, so the more flights the more packages, but for some of these small exotic islands, a 747 may be too big for the package volume and something smaller would be more suitable.

I just noticed the system sent me 5 messages all at once. I assume it automatically scanned all the pilots when I turned the new system on and it is promoting all happily? :) This is great!
Nice!

Re: New Feature: Type VA Rank Updatges

Thank you Joe! This will be very helpful. It was getting very hard for my officers and I to keep on top of promotions. Automating this system will help greatly. There is one question. We like to send out messages/letters to promoted pilots to congratulate them and we also post promotions to our VA'...

What type rating if any, is given to new pilots. ?
Well, by default, none. You can specify in your VA setting which is the default rank for new pilots and you can specify in that rank what type ratings you have, but they only get those ratings if you specify them.
