Hi Again Everyone..  Ok, so We are going to start Accepting Flight Bids, BUT WAIT!!!!... 

Before you make a bid for a flight please understand the following information and guidelines.  The Schedule is made up by an automated program, similar to that which the airlines would use and was programmed by our Chief Pilot (Kyle Hathaway).  That means likely the program will favor his bids...  Just kidding.

In any case the program will take into account many different factors to create the Schedule.  This include but are not limited to (Number of years you have been attending, Flight experience, First come first serve, your Bid list, and how much money you donate to the charity) Ok I am just kidding about the last one.

But the important thing to realize is if you are showing up to the event for only one day, this doesn't mean you will get the same amount of flights say that someone else gets that is there for the entire 7 days. We do our best to accommodate knowing having more people show up over the total length of the event is better than only having a few people show up for the entire event.  We have never to date, had anyone complain about the schedule, and of course as in real life, you can switch with other pilots as long as the Chief Pilot Has been notified in advance.

With all that being said, I must also make it known, that Until your Pilot Donations are in, None of your flight bids will be entered into the system, and if someone else makes a Bid for a flight you want....  It will count against you if your pilot donation hasn't been made yet. You should be noted too that just because you BID a flight, a more experienced Pilot May take that Bid away from you.  Bids aren't Guaranteed Flights, but I don't think we have ever had any complaints.

**  YOU DO NOT NEED TO BID FLIGHTS - IF YOU DON'T BID THE SYSTEM WILL STILL ISSUE YOU FLIGHTS, BIDDING IS ONLY FOR FAVORITE FLIGHTS TO DO **

Here is the Schedule, and Happy Bidding!

Hi all.
Just an FYI that each pilot is only allotted 10 bid slots. The system will throw away any bids after the 10th one is awarded.

just curious  using bid system normally based on seniority number   gow does it work with WF   date joined forum etc

helloo

So is this where you all get together at one location and switch off flying duties?  And those of us that do not attend can fly along as well?  All online?  ATC coverage?

Hi Bernard as above seniority is based on number of years in attendance to our worldflight event.  Combined with experience ie. can you knowledgeably do all functions fo/captain duties on your own if you were alone in the aircraft or do you require some assistance, lots of assistance or are you completely green.


Some people can completely function alone in a Cessna 152 but put the 738 in front of them and they will always be behind the aircraft. Obviously first year members are assigned a lower skill level until we observe their abilities.

Yes if you do some research on worldflight group or www.worldflightusa.com you will read about it. The auzzies have been doing it 19 years. We started in 2013. 100% atc online coverage for 7 days 24 hours a day straight.


And absolutely if your a vatsim member you can totally fly along with the groups.

Trevor,

Here are my bids:

Saturday   1902
Sunday   1905, 1906 or 1907
Monday   1910
Tuesday   1920
Wednesday   1927
Thursday   1934
Friday   1942

I'm fine with anything I get assigned. I'm available 24/7 every day and I'm a low man on the seniority list.  ;D

I'm also more than happy to fly jump on any flight and be the "social media" officer whenever needed.

Also - throw Ray a bone and assign me to be his First Officer at least once so he can boss me around for a change...... LOL

Ryan

P.S. Team, a quick reminder to check your company's charitable giving policy.

My company matches charitable donations $1 for $1 so I took advantage of that and hopefully it gets approved.

Absolutely, I am sure we can manage to let Ray Boss you around for a change, but Ray's probably going to boss you around anyway :) Right seat or not LOL.
Actually with regard to the Social Media Duties, I appreciate that,  it will help keep a professional productive fun enviornment and does help to generate revenue for the kids.  Great stuff.
