CRAF Virtual Cargo

Posted by Monty Roberts on 05/13/2020

 

We have opened our new sister VA.  We have created a separate website for our CRAF cargo flights.  We have moved our CRAF cargo flight schedules to the new website, CRAF Virtual Cargo, at http://www.CRAFvirtual.com.  Now you will be able to fly commercial cargo aircraft to haul military cargo to US Air Bases around the world, and earn commercial rank for your hours. 

 

You are invited to explore the website, and join us for a few flights.  All AMCv pilots who fly on CRAF Virtual Cargo on or before May 20th will receive a CRAFvC Founding Member’s Award. 

 

Best Regards,

Monty

Duplicate Flights

Posted by Monty Roberts on 04/27/2020

 

Recently, a number of pilots have had problems with Duplicate Flights.

 

The root cause of this problem is that our server is sometimes slow to acknowledge receipt of smartCARS PIREPs.  The smartCARS data is sent to our website as soon as you click the file button.  But, the website can be very slow to send smartCARS a confirmation that the PIREP has been received.

 

I have found a twofold solution to our problem.  First, I made a modification to the website code which should eliminate the “PIREP Filing Error” that you sometimes see when you file your PIREP.

 

Second, we have a minor process change.  After you click the File PIREP button, don’t wait for a confirmation.  Just switch to Base Admin and look for the PIREP.  It should be there almost instantly.  When you see it, just approve it.

Lost Flights

Posted by Monty Roberts on 04/27/2020

I want to share something I discovered the other day, while I was working on an issue for one of our pilots. 

 

With so many folks staying home these days, some of us may experience internet issues.  If you lose a flight due to disconnection from the internet, just file a Manual PIREP using the following procedure. 

 

It will give you full credit for mission completion, including your ribbon on the last leg.  This also applies to all other flights under the Fast Track Tab. 

 

Just use the following instructions to file a Manual PIREP for each lost flight.  

 

First, signup again for a leg you have lost.  Click on “View My Bids”, and verify that the leg is in there.  The leg MUST be in “View My Bids” for this to work. 

 

While you’re in “View My Bids”, make a note of the Flight Number, the Departure Base, and the Arrival Base.  Then, make an estimate of the Fuel used, and the Flight Time.

 

Click "File a New PIREP".  (For example, I will use flight number, AMC24211.)

 

  • Select “AMC” in the Select Airline Box.  
  • In the Flight Number Box, enter the number ONLY - 24211.  
  • Select the Departure Airport.  
  • Select the Arrival Airport.  
  • Select the Aircraft.  
  • Enter your estimated fuel used in the Fuel Used box.  
  • Enter your estimated flight time in the Flight Time box.  
  • Now click “File Flight Report.”


If you get a “Missing Data error”, just click the browser Back Arrow, and enter the missing information.  Then, click “File Flight Report” again.

 

If you get an error that says something else, just ignore it.

 

Go to Base Admin, and approve the PIREP.  If you do it this way, you can get full credit for any missing Fast Track Mission, or any other mission in the Fast Track Tab.  

 

Then, click on “View My Bids”, and delete the flight from the list.  

 

Best Regards,
Monty
