Use Standard Type Profile contains a list of aircraft from the Avianis database which includes basic aircraft data points, performance data, and flight time configurations.
From Aircraft allows the user to copy an aircraft template that is already in their fleet aircraft or one of a vendor aircraft.
Create New is only used if the aircraft type does not already exist in the Standard Profile type. It does not contain any flight time configuration data.

7. To modify the rates for this aircraft, click the contracts tab then click the blue edit button. From here, the user can set the default calculation method to fixed. This allows the user to easily input the price once the quote is created. The calculation method can be altered at the quote level.

VIEW TRIPS ON SCHEDULE
Once a trip is scheduled on the vendor aircraft it will display on the calendar when the appropriate filters are set to show as well is within the duration of time set on the calendar.
For example, if the user's calendar is set to a 30-day timeline and there is a flight within that time frame the aircraft will display. If the view is changed to a 7-day timeline and the trip is no longer within the duration of the specified time, the aircraft will not display. Below is how to enable these views.
On the main navigation go to Scheduling > Aircraft
Click on Filters and set Brokered Flights to show and reload the schedule
All scheduled trips on a vendor aircraft within the selected timeline will display at the top of the calendar in a blue color.
On the main navigation go to Schedule Board
Click on "Settings" within the upper right-hand corner
Ensure that the "Vendor" view has been enabled
Once the view is enabled you will then have the additional setting to either display all vendor aircraft or to only show vendor aircraft that have scheduled items based on the timeline duration and date.

2. Select the Aircraft button in the right corner, this will take the user to the vendor aircraft search page
3. There are a number of search functionalities available on the page.
Dropdown Menu - The drop-down menu at the top of the filters options box allows the user to select default searches, ones that they have saved and ones that have been shared with them by other users.

The last search that was run from this drop-down will be saved for the next time the user loads the page.
Display Columns - The display columns option allows the user to select which columns will appear in the table and in what order they appear.
Column Filters - The user can quickly and effectively drill down into records that are pertinent to them through the filters. Their full functionality is covered later in this guide.
