Charter Flight Manual PIREP
« on: November 21, 2019, 10:19:45 AM »
Is there an option to file a manual PIREP for a Charter Flight ? 

I tried unsuccessfully to do that after Cigar Box Shut down (Froze) for me yesterday sometime prior to the completion of a Charter Flight flight.

Manual PIREP error message: "The flight code and number you entered is not a valid route!"

P.S.  Cigar Box worked fine this morning.

Filing a Manual Pirep for a reg flight works fine but not for a charter as the flight # or route for the charter is probally a mis-match in the flight schedules system table.


(PS: When filing a flight number for a regular or tour flight# omit the MFC as it is already inferred by the system).

Thanks Norm

I thought that was going to be the 'Answer'.

So, unfortunately, if you're doing a Charter Flight like I was yesterday and Cigar Box 'Freezes' during the flight; there is no way to log that time.   :(

Well, Ce La Vie + hopefully Cigar Box will not fail me again.   8)

Cigar Box in-flight freezes or lock-ups are rare so hopefully most will not experience a lost charter.
