Basic details about the aircraft should be entered on this page. Entries on this page will also effect how bookings are accepted and also the figures for producing cost reports as well as the warning dates such as Insurance, Annual etc.
Aircraft details Basic tab
The Aircraft base airfield should be selected from the drop down list. This will be used as the default departure and arrival point when adding log book entries and will also be used to calculate and display sunrise/sunset times.
Note: If your base airfield is not listed please send us an email and we will add it to the list
If you enter a figure in the maximum booking length field then no booking will be accepted that exceeds that number of days. Entering 0 signifies that there is no maximum booking length.
The maintenance email address is the email address of who should be informed when a defect is logged against the aircraft.
Tip: To have the email sent to multiple people (for example the member responsible for maintenance and the actual maintenance organization) then enter each email address separated by a comma.
Aircraft costs tab
The aircraft costs are used to calculate cost reports.
If you provide a credit for any fuel that a member has uplifted at their own expense then enter the credit amount per litre.
All costs should be entered in pence/cents with no decimal point.
The last cost date is the date that members were last presented with a cost report (invoice) and will be used as the default start date when selecting any reports.
Aircraft warnings tab
The various aircraft expiry dates and warning periods allow automatic emails to be sent to the relevant member when these dates are approaching. The email will be sent when the expiry date is within the warning days and then at intervals of every 7 days. They also determine how the status page is displayed.
The actual warnings are setup under warnings.
