Flight Time Limits
User defined Flight Time Limits, Duty Time Limits and Flat Rate are displayed in table and graph. In combination with myQuery you can actually monitor display any kind of flight time limit, such as :
“I am an instructor on Boeing 747. My flat rate pay runs from October 1st till the 30th of September next year and includes all flights on the 747 aircraft and all simulator sessions performed as instructor. Simulator time to renew my own license does not account for my flat rate and must be left out.”
When was your last flight with that co-pilot ? How many hours did I log in the past fiscal year ? How many hours did I log as instructor in the simulator ?
The Query page enables you to query the database with a few clicks and get the results within a second.
With the Advanced myQuery function, you can build and save complex queries, such as ‘’the number of mountain landings performed on twin-engine turbofan helicopter between August 1st and December 31st’’ or ‘’relief time logged on Airbus 330/340 series during Atlantic and Pacific Ocean crossings’’… These complex queries can be saved and then ported to any of the 100 reports !
