I still cannot access it online, but surprise, surprise...it's been in my email account since 430PM...in various formats, too. Finally!

It would have been so simple to explain the change in procedure. Communication is so important in the cockpit but obviously trivial within a company!!

How dare they take away the one genuine, guaranteeable source of a quality whinge! The fact that I can now simply download the .ics file and import it into iCal is simply not cricket! The 15th of the month will never be the same again.

Such cynicism, you don't realise the amount of back slapping that had to goon after winning "the best IT of the year award for an airline based inHKG with a green tail and a boss called John award" or as I like to callit the TBIOTYAFAABIHWAGTAABCJA a most prestigious award indeed, oh and thenfire the guy who made it all possible.

Shame on you.

Apparently Nose Gear was offended by my sarcastic remark. The punishment will continue, but I will just pretend it is not happening from now on.

Thumbs down joejet

I don't normally take the bait...but....joejet, you take the prize for stupid, asinine, comment of the month. I'd like to see you apologize but I won't be holding my breath.

Good point crwjerk. It used to be that there was an email sent to your Outlook account informing you of the roster publication and now there's an email sent to your Outlook account informing you of the roster publication - it's outrageous!

Why is Simulator 5 listed in "Expiries in next 3 months?"

crwjerk "Why is Simulator 5 listed in "Expiries in next 3 months?"

Volume 7.

Simulator 5 includes the Wind-shear schedule 11 requirement which previously was in the RT/PC cycle.

Why?

Because if there was no regulatory requirement for this Sim, then it would appear on the published roster but would be quickly cancelled by 8929.

Everyone has to do this from the DFO to the most junior JFO. This duty will probably be at an anti-social time of the day, but there is good evidence to suggest that we all need some training.

With the crew shortage I am amazed that the bean counters have not squeezed this Simulator out of the syllabus.

Wot Jonathon sed!

The fleet offices fought hard to get this training opportunity against the South end of 3rd floor who think training gets in the way of screwing crew into a "productive" roster.

Fleet slipped the regulatory item into what used to be an easily cancelled simulator training duty and got a rare win over the Pongo. To CC any simulator that is not regulatory is just a free Reserve. (oh what am I thinking, nearly all reserve is free..)

Nose Gear - Sorry!

Where can I collect my Prize? I'm assuming it will be unannounced, just like my roster, in my Company email.

@Jizz,

This doesn't answer your question properly, but if you have a google calendar account, why don't you load it into that and then sync it to your iPad. Just did it and it took all of 30 secs.

If you don't have such sync setup, there are instructions on gCal which talk you through it.

gCal syncs with the native calendar app on iPad and also other 3rd party apps. (I use "Informant").

Hope this helps. Sorry if I've told you to suck eggs in any way.

Press your finger down over the .ics file link for a second and then select "open in new Tab" .
