Basic Reporting


How can I produce a list showing the active Airliners that I need - for example operated by British airlines.

On the front screen set Show Aircraft to Needed , set the Show Status to Active then from within the Search Menu option select Country Opr List and then enter G as the Base Country , before pressing Search make sure that both Jets and Props are ticked in the Include box. 

Choose from Text, Text (abbr) ,  Excel , Excel (abbr)  and press the Search button. If the abbr option is not selected then the report shows an airliner per row and gives aircraft type information. If the abbr option is selected then the report shows the information in columns with a maximum of 9 registrations per row. No aircraft type details are shown if the abbr option is selected.

Selecting the Include Needed Annotations creates a tick box in the left hand column. This feature only works in this way when abbr (abbreviated) has not been selected. If the Include Needed Annotations is ticked and abbr is chosen then a star is shown to the right of all needed registrations.

A few examples are shown below:

Text – Not Abbr (Abbreviated) – Include Annotations Not Ticked.
Royal Air Force (RRR)
ZH101 E3CF
ZH102 E3CF
ZH103 E3CF
ZH106 E3CF
