The 5th Anniversary of AMCv Cold War Mission is now up.

5th Anniversary of AMCv

Posted by Monty Roberts on 06/25/2021

 

 

On November 20, 2021, AMCv will officially celebrate five years as a military flight club.  In recognition of this event, we have planned some new ranks, new events, and new rewards. 

 

First, I have made two changes to the AMCv website.  I changed the blue background color on our website.  It is now a little darker blue.  I have also removed the non-cargo commands from the COMMANDS Tab, and the Roster Page.  However, the schedules and the aircraft remain, so you can still fly fighters, bombers, and support aircraft.  The COMMANDS Tab now consists of the cargo commands of the five branches of the military, CRAF, and the Vintage Aircraft CMD.  This change has been made to emphasize our primary mission – hauling military cargo. 

 

And, as I said before, we have six new ranks.  These new ranks will provide us with levels of achievement for several years to come.  Each of the new ranks will be rewarded with a virtual challenge coin that will be added to your ribbon list.  

 

I have also created six new cargo missions, one for each month as we count down to November 20.  The first mission will be available June 1.  Each of these missions will be rewarded with a virtual challenge coin.  The missions are all cargo missions designed to support the war effort of various time periods, beginning with the Vietnam War.  In keeping with the flight information available for the Gulf War mobilization, these missions will be long haul multi-leg flights between two air bases. 

 

While you are free to fly any cargo aircraft in our fleet, please do not fly no-cargo aircraft on these 5th Anniversary Missions, such as fighters, bombers, helicopters, etc.  If you complete all legs of all six missions in a cargo aircraft, you will receive an AMCv 5th Anniversary virtual challenge coin. 

 

And, if you have an idea that will help us celebrate the 5th Anniversary of AMCv, please send it to me in an email.

TABS and LINKS Changes

Posted by Monty Roberts on 06/25/2021

Thank you to Tim and Mike for their recent input and suggestions.  We have reorganized the Tabs and Links on the webpage.  These changes should make navigation of the webpage more intuitive. 

 

The Search module is now labeled Flight Planning.  You can also use the SimBrief.com link to plan flights in more detail.  I have decluttered the Fast Track page, and renamed it Fast Track/Events. 

 

At the bottom of the OPS tab there are three maps.  The Route Map can be used to see all flights to and from a hub or air base.  Just mouse over the hub or air base.  The Live Map link shows the position of all active flights.  And, if it does not display correctly, click on the browser refresh button.  Finally, the Flight Track link is a map that will show your direct flight path, and your actual flight path. 

 

I also added two catelgories to the end of the Roster page: Silent Wings, and Emeritus Pilots.  Silent Wings is a list of our pilots who have passed away.  And Emeritus Pilots is a list of distinguished AMCv pilots who no longer fly with us.  

 

We now have a Downloads tab, Screenshots tab, and a PIREPs tab. 

 

The COMMANDERS Tab is now the PIREPS Tab.  The PIREPS Tab has an Approve PIREP link (it was the Base Admin page).  

 

CRAF Operations has been merged with the military OPS page.  The CRAF tab is now information links only.  When you are logged out, you will see that the Registration link is now the Join link. 

 

Your comments and suggestions on the changes, or anything else, are welcome.  Give me a shout on email or chat.

I have posted a memorial flight to honor Mark DiDomenico.  It can be found under the Fast Track Tab.  It is called:
