Note: If several pilots are actively editing an operation or the flights within an operation at the same time, the last pilot to save changes will overwrite all the other changes. Best practices: Assign each operation to a single flight crew, and close the operation after you’re done making edits (ie, don’t leave a given operations record open if you’re not actively editing it).
Skyward operations have been designed around one flight crew operating in a single flight area. In order to get the best performance from Skyward, keep a single operation to 30 flights or fewer.
1. Go to Manage > Operations or click the Log button on your dashboard.
2. Go the Flights tab. Add Flight creates a flight record within the operation. If one or more flights already exist within the operation, clicking Add Flight duplicates the operation immediately above, copying flight crew, aircraft, batteries, payloads, and custom fields.
3. Assign your flight crew to roles and select your aircraft. Batteries, payloads, and custom fields are all optional.
4. Log operation
5. Flight Imports
The Flight Imports tab will store all flights not associated with a particular operation. This allows you to easily unlink a flight from one operation and arrange it into another, increasing flexibility when organizing flights. A user can only see flights they are assigned as a pilot on. Admin can see all flights regardless of the pilot in their flight imports. Once an operation is logged, flights cannot be unlinked.
