Yet another new pilot...

Postby Holdit » 14 Oct 2018 23:58

Greetings to all,

I joined recently, and am doing some back-to-basics flying i,e, learn how to do it properly (VFR and IFR) and progress from simple singles to complex singles and twins, turboprops etc.

I just completed my first flight, a simple hop in a C172 from Orcas Island to Bowerman, but I can't find where to file the PIREP. I didn't run MyAAS for the flight. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I'm very pleased to have found Air Source, which provides plenty of variety and also sidesteps the problem of many VAs - not having a livery for the aircraft I want to fly. :)

Hi Paul.
First of all, Welcome to Air-Source!

Unfortunately, I don't have much experience with GA flights. Hopefully someone can steer you in the right direction. Have you tried the "View Open Flight Plans" link on the GA page? Maybe there is a link to file the flight?

Hi Joe, and thanks.

Yes I did and the flight is there where I originally set it up, but I don't see any way to report it as having been flown. Since I posted, I read something about that only being possible with scheduled flights, so I guess I'll have to fly it again. :cry:

Hello Paul, and welcome to AirSource!

The only division that allows manual PIREP is the Scheduled flights... GA requires myAAS program to record flights.

Hey there Paul.

Welcome to Air Source. You've found a great VA with so many possibilities.

I'd simply recommend using MyAAS to report/record "all" of your flights. It makes it so much easier to just get them in and you get the credit for the flight.

Blue side up.

Cheers.
