Greetings Fellow Pilots:

To further add to the immersion of this year's Iditarod Adventure, we would like to institute the following small and easy rule change:


Applies To:

Only those of you who wish to file a PIREP of your Dispatch flight.


Purpose:

To provide a "Job Board" notification system, letting other pilots know that you have "taken" a Dispatch and are currently engaged in executing it.


Description:

In the real world, we wouldn't see 3 separate pilots and their aircraft hauling a new iPhone out to Anna Berington as an example. There would be one who stood in front of the Chief Pilot and accepted the flight, performed it admirably and then returned to base or filed their Pirep electronically, thereby 'clearing' the flight and the Board, as it were. This simple process will allow any and all to increase their immersion by performing and adhering to this one procedure.


What Do I Do?

In this thread, starting with the next post, merely Declare Your Intent and Disptach #. The declaration of intent is easy... merely by posting we can see who you are and the date and time stamp of your post. That tells us that you are heading out on #xxx Dispatch right now, and we should pick a different one if we are:

a. wishing to fly a Dispatch that nobody else is flying or prepping, assuming the other person wishes to formally file

    a Pirep and not just fly it for the fun without any paperwork, which is always encouraged anyhow!

b. definitely going to file a Pirep, thus formally 'opening and closing' a flight plan.


So all you need to do here is just post the Dispatch# in a separate post and those of us who are interested in this exercise shall look in this thread before we pick a Dispatch to fly.


What If I "file" here and then partway through flight I have to quit because I have a real-life commitment/interruption?

The moment you quit your flight or decide to 'free up' the Dispatch, merely come to this thread and delete your post where you 'declared' your 'ownership' of that particular Dispatch. Do not file any type of Pirep for that flight, even if partially complete.


Summary:

Post your Intent here by naming the Dispatch#. Fly the Dispatch. Post your Pirep in the proper thread.

Again, this is only meant for those who wish to engage in this deeper level of immersion and does not imply that this is a mandatory exercise. Please feel free to do/duplicate/redo any and all Dispatches for your pleasure, whether you file a Pirep or not, even if someone already has a Pirep previously filed.


Most of all... Have Fun :D


Cheers,

bc
