Welcome to our idea forum. What do you think we should build next?

  1. Add a new filter: aircraft/instructor/Required booking hours

    This feature would be very helpful for Dual bookings for Xcountry flights.

    I would love to be able to narrow down the calendar so that it shows me:

    Any timeslots of 3 hours where both the Cessna 172 & my instructor are available.

    Thanks!

  2. Allow instructor confirmation of a booking via app, text, or email response...

    To my knowledge, the only present way to handle bookings is either allow anyone to freely book an instructor if their schedule shows open, OR, the student/renter sees the instructor available and has to call a staff member or the instructor to actually book the slot. I'd LOVE to see a feature where a student sees your availability, essentially REQUESTS the booking, and then the instructor either confirm or deny it via a text, app, or email response through FSP. This is a very basic feature inherent in products like Square's online scheduling service that I think would add great…

  3. Add timezone data to iCal reservation downloads

    timezone for downloaded events are "floating", this can result in mis-scheduled events if I add to my calendar while in a different timezone.

  4. Refreshing schedule calendar causes existing filter to be lost

    A schedule calendar is displayed. It is refreshed manually to display a new schedule event and the existing filter is lost, reverting to the default filter. The existing filter and time range should be refreshed instead.

  5. Smaller popup dialogs (schedule, confirm) that are not larger than the calendar they derive from.

    Pop-up dialogs have excessive white space that require scrolling the browser window beyond the extent of the underlying calendar in order to click the dialog confirmation buttons.

  6. contact instructor

    It would be nice on the instructor descriptions if you could contact the instructor either only through email or by providing a telephone number to make sure that time frames work with the instructor as well as for the student

  7. list sunrise and sunset

    I would like to see the sunrise / sunset time listed on the scheduling page. it would be a good heads up when making a reservation whether night flight might be a factor.

  8. Start the week on Monday in stead of Sunday.

    In Month View: Please do start the week on Monday in stead of Sunday. So we have a better view over the activities in the week-end. Or is there a way to change it myself?

  9. Allow and promote the use of ISO date format

    For us in Canada dates are very confusing since 3 different formats are in use: YYYY/MM/DD, DD/MM/YYYY and MM/DD/YYYY

    The only one that is unambiguous is YYYY/MM/DD - sorted from largest unit to smallest. This is the International Standards Organization format and follows most closely what we already see on METARs and other aviation related products. There is currently a bill before the Canadian parliament to adopt the ISO format for all legal documents.

  10. Add a link to Aircraft specs from the N number in the schedule

    Similar to the old version, make the N number for each aircraft a link to the aircraft specs page to view weight and balance primarily, and other information on a second page

  11. Email Reminders for Pilot Expiring Items

    Allow us to configure automated email drip series as reminders when a pilot's items are expiring: currency items, renter's insurance, medical certificate, TSA training, etc.

    This would automate the administration of pilots records.

  12. Show reservations for prior/next month in month view.

    While in month view the previous and next month day's that show up on the calendar do not show reservations. I would like to see these reservations because it appears that there isn't a reservation until you go to the next month. November is a good example of this.

  13. Instructors should be able to block individual students from scheduling a specific instructor

    I want to be be able to block a certain student from scheduling me, while allowing that student to be able to schedule other instructors.for example, call blocking certain phone numbers. There are certain students that I do not want to fly with for various reasons, but want to allow others to schedule me without going through me or front desk staff.

  14. Please return "Week vertical" view option

    The new interface has removed one of the most useful views: Week Vertical, allowing to view resource allocation for the complete week in a single click/view.

    Please add that back...

  16. Allow for multiple levels of currency by pilot.

    Pilot A has less than 150 hours of flight time. He must fly once every 30 days or a checkout is required. Pilot B has more than 150 hours so his currency period is extended to 60 days.

  17. Allow a custom message in reservation change notification emails.

    When overriding a reservation due to maintenance or other aircraft availability issues, I always try to send the affected pilots an explanation of why I'm doing it. This requires me to look up the email addresses of those pilots and compose a separate email. It would be really helpful if I had the ability to add explanatory text to the automatically generated emails.

  18. Allow pilots to subscribe to a reservation to be notified if it's cancelled

    I'd rather you just let me know when an appointment is cancelled, so I have the option of booking in the newly available slot, instead of booking a standby reservation like it works now. I should be able to click on an appointment and "subscribe" to it. Maybe I can choose when I'm notified - like for cancellation only, or when any changes are made.

  19. Make a table that tracks which aircraft each instructor can train in and limit customers from selecting inapplicable instructors

    as a for instance; if an instructor is not an MEI you could have a pop-up that tells the student that the instructor chosen is not certified to teach in the twin.

  20. Allow us to mark a flight as cancelled vs deleted

    There are many times when we can't fly due to weather. We cxl the flights but don't want it to show as a normal flight. We need to be able to mark it cxl'd as red so it shows on the schedule. Too much good info is lost when we delete, expecially on intro flights.
