Management Logons

Post by sanins192 » 26 May 2007, 13:32

I was just wondering how management and people like Aaron access simairline so they can approve PIREPs and do other stuff. I am guessing that they log on as normal pilots do, but their logons have added features etc.

Read an article on a previous Latitude edition, it revolves around how management (Aaron) handles PIREPs, etc.

Most management can't do PIREPS; I believe it's only Aaron and Ali who have access to the PIREP handling system.

Unless something has changed, Ali designs the PIREP form system, and only Aaron checks the PIREPs.

Is Aaron a superhuman? 2290 PIREPs were filed last month.

Yes, he is. :wink:

Really though, he's said he spends 5 seconds on each Pirep since he knows the va's ops well

Why don't we have a automatic PIREP chechking system for simairline.net? If the system detecs a problem in a PIREP, then it will send it to the one and only Aaron... so that it can be revised. That would take some of the work load off our managers.

It's been talked about, but it takes tons of work.

Yup, there are hundreds of variables (eg. there's a diversion mentioned in the comments of a flight, so the program will need to be told to take that time out of the PIREP) that would take a crazy amount of time to program. It would be nice, but nothing is better than the real thing.

Aaron is incredible when it comes to things like this.

Remember that he's also doing college and that alone is a huge amount of work but add on the SimAirline.net work !

I really don't know how he does it. WELL DONE AARON !!!!!!!!!!

And has recently completed another very large accomplishment, that I'll keep confidential as he has requested. Suffice to say that he is pretty much a robot :)

LOL !

I can see why the pilot might think that, Aaron is if nothing else the most consistent person I've ever met !
