Various settings related to operations on an overall account level. (These options were previously found under Global Settings > Trip.)
Operations > Settings > Configurations
Default Trip Type
Designate a default trip type to be selected for all new trips. Trip Types can be customized by the operation in Operations > Settings > Classifications > Trip Types.
Designate a default regulatory set for automation at the trip leg level. Additionally, modify the leg regulatory within a trip on the leg level.
Pre/Post Duty Domestic and International
Configure the pre and post time the organization considers for duty. These values are considered in the estimated duty calculations pre trip.
Taxi Time Variant
This value will be added to the proposed flight time. This time will be overridden per aircraft if there is a time entered in 'Taxi Time' on the Aircraft Profile (e.g. for helicopters).
Roles that can Change the Leg Status in Trips
The user roles selected are the users that are able to change the leg statuses within a trip on the trip overview page and within the flight log.
Offline Leg Status
Users can setup specific leg statuses that are effected by an offline event being saved. For example, if the Release and En-route statuses are selected and a user marks an aircraft as offline, the system will prompt them to address legs that are in the future with these statuses by changing those trips to In Review automatically.
Countries Considered Domestic
This setting has two functions. First, when countries are selected, it negates the international pre/post duty setting and considers the domestic pre/post duty settings for calculating the estimated duty at the trip level. Secondly, when a master line item is created for overnights and the calculation type is international, but the country is considered "domestic" for monetary reasons, the fee will calculate at the domestic rate.
Estimated Flight Time Rounding/Actual Flight Time Rounding
Set whether the account should round the estimated (quote and trip) flight times and actual flight times. Below is the rounding table (this cannot be altered):
Check out Set Flight Rounding for more on this.
When rounding is set to Yes for Estimated and/or Actual, set the Rounding Method. 10th of an Hour or Up 5 Minutes. When 10th of an hour is selected, it rounds according to the table mentioned above. When up 5 minutes is selected, it rounds to the nearest 5 minutes.
Required Regulatory for Legs
With this set to 'yes', a regulatory type is required for all legs within a trip. If a regulatory type isn't selected, a critical warning displays in the Trip Snapshot.
Use Segment Release Codes
When set to yes, the dispatch release option is available in the trip overview page and the Ref Number field is available in the flight log. This field can be used for entering a unique dispatch release number and correspond to the Ref Number field in the flight log.
Require Approach Types for Flight Logs
Select 'yes' to require an approach type be selected for each leg of the flight log. A user will not be able to save a flight log if set to yes and they don't input an approach type.
Skip Pending Stage for Booked Quotes
With this set to 'no', when a quote is booked it moves to the "pending" trip stage. For example, if you have a client that is holding the aircraft and you're confident they're going to book, but paperwork has not been received yet this allows the user to place the trip on the schedule for all to view in a "pending" status.
Enable Local/Zulu Toggle on Flight Logs
With the default set to 'yes' the user will have the ability to toggle between either option when logging actual flight times.
Require Crew Briefing
If this setting is set to 'yes' and a crew does not accept their briefing, flags will be visible in the trip snapshot. If a crew member has already acknowledged briefed, when set change control items change the crew brief reverts back to "no" on the pilot side and in the trip snapshot informs ops the crew has not accepted the brief. For more on the Change Control Settings, refer to this helpful guide.
Calculate Estimated Day/Night Hours Based on Flight or Block
Designate whether estimated day/night hour calculations are occurring in the flight log and if they are based on flight or block time.
Note: The values are an estimate only and the crew member should review and manually adjust if necessary.
Check Crew Members Against Regulatory Types
When set to 'yes', a check is run and a flag is provided in the Trip Snapshot > Crew section as a critical item if the regulatory type selected on the personnel profile and the regulation per leg does not match in the trip.
Run Crew Conflict Checks when Added to Trip
When set to 'yes' and crew members are assigned to trips and flight legs, a pop-up will display all applicable crew conflicts that are listed in the Trip Snapshot > Crew section. Items include travel document status, medical status, training currency, regulatory set limitation and experience checks as well as briefing status (if enabled).
If the Run Crew Conflict check is not enabled, the information is still available in the Trip Snapshot > Crew section, but does not pop-up as crewing.
Enable SIC logging PIC time
When set to 'Yes', if a crew member flies as an SIC on an aircraft but is PIC qualified, the SIC will accumulate PIC hours for the legs flown. If it is set to no, the SIC will continue to log the hours as SIC. The crew member must have a type rating created in their personnel profile with a PIC position.
Hide Reimbursable Expenses on Trip and Flight Log
When set to 'Yes', the expenses designated reimbursable in a trip will be hidden when the user opens the expense tab. They have the option to show them temporarily. If set to 'No," all expenses including reimbursable display by default and the option to show/hide is available for quick review.
Lock Trip Type
Designate whether to lock the trip type once the scheduled time of the first leg is met. If either of these are set to lock, user roles can be designated that will still be able to adjust the field after the fact if necessary.
Lock Regulatory Set
Designate whether to lock the regulatory set once the scheduled time of the first leg is met. If either of these are set to lock, user roles can be designated that will still be able to adjust the field after the fact if necessary.
Trip Lock Leg Verification
When set to yes, a user is not able to lock a trip until all legs in the trip are in the assigned status.
ATC Flight Time Configurations
Enable when enhanced flight planning (if enabled in the aircraft profile) is used based on quote, trip, domestic and/or international. For more on the enhanced flight planning functionality, review the Calculate with Flight Planning guide.
