the status of the Auto PIREP system used for previous GAARs is unknown at this stage.
Until further notice, the following manual PIREP system will be used.
Flight Time is calculated from wheels
rolling (Start Timer) on the take off roll, to wheels
stop (Stop Timer) at the end of the landing roll, and must
be reported in Minutes to 2 (two) decimal places. For added realism,
you may reposition your aircraft in the respective Flight Leg Situation file and taxi from
parking to the active, and you may taxi to the terminal at the end of rollout, but this
time must not be included in the flight time. To avoid possible timing errors due to
crossing time zones it is recommended that UTC (Zulu) time be used rather than local time.
This timing process can be simplified by
using Tom Goodrick's flight timer program available from the "GAAR Downloads"
You are required to submit a single flight report (PIREP) for each
of the 10 GAAR flights as they are completed. A single PIREP for each flight must be
sent as an email to email@example.com
with the flight data appearing in the subject line of the email. Text will not be
required in the body of the message although flight comments are welcome. It is
important that the PIREP FLIGHT DATA
be entered on the SUBJECT LINE
in the following format exactly by padding numbers with leading 0's where necessary to
have the required digits:
TWO digits of the GAAR Flight Leg
number (space) THREE digits of the GAAR Pilot number (space)
Flight Leg 06 is flown by pilot 017 in 125.66
The Subject Line of the email will be as follows: 06 017
Please note that all numbers in the report should be whole numbers with no commas,
colons, or decimal points, except for the flight time.
LATE PIREPS. Late PIREPS will not be
accepted. Any participant failing to file a PIREP within the specified time period will be
Comments. If you wish to make comments about
the flown Flight Leg, please add it in the text body.
Problems and Corrections. If you have any
problems or corrections relating to PIREPS, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP
and we will endeavour to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.
Further Note on Filing PIREPs. Filing PIREPS
well in advance of their due dates is highly recommended and encouraged.
