I'd like to participate in this event, but I'm having some difficulty finding what my home airport is set as. I didn't see anything in my Air Source profile or in my forum profile. Where exactly could I find this?

Thanks for the help!

I am currently flying general aviation flight KLCH (Lake Charles, LA) to KDFW (Dallas-Ft Worth, TX) my home airport. After I was airborne, I clicked on the Home Page Banner - "Home For The Holidays".
Have I now superseded my chance for the extra v$5000 (Bid - Scheduled - General Aviation flights) by flying to my home airport first?

Sounds exciting!
Already booked BID, picked Scheduled flight, but the GA flight will be serious...
Why I chose EKVG Vagar airport in Faroe Islands as my Home airport? :)

Apparently I wasn't seeing one on my logbook, because I had not previously set a home airport. After I browsed to my home airport (KIND) and clicked the link to set it, then it started to show up in my logbook.

Does this mean I am ineligible to participate, because I had not set a home airport before 00:00 UTC 23 Nov 2015? It's understandable if so, I will just need to be on the ball next time around.

Hey Tom.

Will there be an increase in the available Bid flights in the coming days/weeks?

I think as long as you do it in the order it was specified, then you will be good to go. Thats how I did it last year. I am on my way to my start location for the event as I speak. I will note in each PIREP which leg of the 3 I am on....thats my take on it.

Don,

No, because now you can do the bonus flights in the order listed in the announcement.

All: Note that ALL posts in the news forums are by nature required to be "approved" first. This is just the nature of this forum, so do not think it is you or your profile, it's everyone that is not a moderator.

Also, if you did not have a home airport set up, e-mail me directly and give me your AS # and home airport ICAO.
