Figure to star a new “summary thread” as I know the original thread was lengthy on my learning experiences thus far so hopefully this post will help you weed out the wheat from the chaff.
At work as I write this and using MSIE 6.0. I cleared out the cache, cookies to make sure these were not a factor in my experiences. Java version is current with 1.4.1_02 at work.
Problems outstanding this morning.
Cannot add new pilot information (after shift and reload) still get “error on page” in the lower left corner. This problem is unique to MSIE 6.0 as I installed Firefox at work and I can add a pilot so it’s not the computer.
Cannot delete aircraft in the aircraft hangar. (MSIE and Fire Fox)
Cannot edit performance profiles that are blank under description. I get service interruption at the bottom of the page (MSIE and Fire Fox )
Cannot edit existing altitude in a valid performance entry and no delete button to get rid of the erroneous entry. (MSIE and Fire Fox)
Cannot proceed past Plan Flight - get service error (MSIE 6.0 and FireFox)
Suggestions from the prior thread
Some validation of field entry should be in order before allowing to proceed to the flight planning part (I.E missing field required). This prevents having to use the back button.
Change verbage “hold altitude” should show “final cruise altitude”
Allow the saving of flight levels (set as default in profile) so it doesn’t have to be retyped every flight plan.
Aircraft data, save the settings in profile and set as default for people like me that only flies one bird.
Clarify instructions to say what you put in your post The performance data is intended to be at points, not over ranges.
Allow user configuration for most common airports (maybe the allowance for three buttons to the right of the last three airports shown in the departure and destination sections of the flight planner)
