Dear Matthias,

You should be able to enter all kinds of flights.
Some remarks however:
1) If you have a pilot assigned to hub EDDP, then what happens is that you allow pilots to fly regular VAM flights, that they can choose a flight from the location they are.
Say these flights exist: EDDP -> EDDK, EDDK -> EDDN, EDDK -> EDDP. EDDN -> EDDF
In your hub..your pilots see only the flights from current location..so that will be: EDDP -> EDDK
Once your pilot arrives in EDDK...these flights show: EDDK -> EDDN, EDDK -> EDDP.
2) To make pilots just to fly from everywhere, let them fly Charter Simacars or manual pirep flights...then everything is possible. Charter flights means the pilot just enters his departure and arrival of choice and has actual no business looking for schedules on the airline site.

So in short, you decide how realistic things can get. I hope this answers your question.

Greetings from Donald.

New and Announcements / Communique Module
« on: March 07, 2020, 10:07:23 PM »
Dear fellow VAM users,

I have created a Communique module. A dedicated staffmember can go to the Pilot Actions menu and there he or she can press the Communique icon.
A subject and message can be entered and then after pressed on the send button, all pilots and stuff receive the communique per email.

if you are interested in this module, then PM me with your e-mail and I will send it to you.

The problem is with this forum that I get 406 errors while trying to post the module to the forum.

Greetings from dohavik.

Suggestions to add to VAM and SIM ACARS / Re: airkraft change location

I am sorry..what exactly do you mean ? If you describe what you mean exactly, then it is easier to answer you.

To add to Lesmar's comment:
-Flight simulation is a hobby...a simulation of a flight...VAM is meant to provide the environment for an airline....every airline is different from another. VAM gives us an enormous range of options. I think the "Away from keyboard" should be an option as well.
-Flight simulation is limited to flying the entire aircraft on your own...so yes it is different than in real life. And so not real aviation laws are applicable on that. Just the one's of the airline.
-Minimum or maximum amounts of hours a month is in my idea limiting the freedom of people. The freedom of doing your flightsim hobby.
-Sleeping is not enjoying your flight sim hobby....what has it for sense to count another occupation to a logbook ?
-Pressing a key can be evaded by bots...but a simple sum and a press on a key not.
So I still think the Away from Keyboard option, should be optional to the VAM system.

New and Announcements / Re: Jump Function
« on: January 21, 2019, 03:20:10 AM »
Dear Maurice,

The jump function lets a pilot choose an airport of choice...then you need to validate these jumps and some earned cash might be withdrawn from the Pilots financial budget.
So to answer your question: To activate jump only if a pilot is at a hub is not possible. Unless you make it yourself happen in php.

I have disabled the change location possibility. In this link you can read how to get it disabled:

I hope it helps you out.

It looks like there is no data. Read the instructions of Installation step by step and carry it out step by step..and then everything should be working.

I was wondering if people have a suggestion or
code snippets on how to show airline logos at
Live flights and flight statistics. It would be awesome if
someone could share that with us on the forum.

In this moment VAM allows pilots to transfer hours from former airlines in the transferred hours column in the gvauser table INT (11).
Disadvantage of this is that only complete hours can be transferred. By modifying the gvausers table and put the transferred hours column at DECIMAL (11,2), the flight hours on the minute
accurate can be transferred.

It might be an idea to update this with the upcoming version of VAM.

Users of VAM who do not want to wait for the next update can do this themselves by:
1. Go to phpMyAdmin at the webserver
2. Go to the gvausers table
3. scroll down to column 26 saying transferred_hours
4. press change
5. Type goes from INT to DECIMAL
6. Length/Values goes from 11 to 11,2

Then save it and it works like a charm.
 ;)

Ideas for the following version:

When Simacars is turned on and the flight  is progressing the pilot needs to press a key or solve a small sum in order to continue without critical warnings.
The airline itself can put this timer in (varying from  10 - 60 minutes).
The sum or key must be pressed within a normal amount of time (3 minutes). If the pilot fails, a critical error is being generated and a counter starts to run.

That way it is visible if a pilot is actually flying or non flying flights. I see the tendency with people to fly long haul flights and then after take off, walk away and then return and do
the landing and make it count as flying time.

My second idea is that the flights being made are put first in a temporarily database and when they are verified, they will be placed in the storage database.
That way if a pirep is rejected for whatever reason, the data is not polluting the database.

Bug reports / A problem in plane_info_public.php
« on: December 07, 2018, 08:01:33 AM »
When I was looking for some data in my VAM airline I stumbled upon the following inconsistency:
My pilot logbook says that I did 2 flights WA1545 and WA1546. I can find it on page:/vam/index.php?page=pilot_details&pilot_id=XX (XX for number.)

When I look then at the airplane log, I see the following in the column Flight:
Flights are not connected to a different flightnumber namely AF1733 and AF1755.
I can find this on page: /vam/index.php?page=plane_info_public&registry_id=PH-XXX

In order to keep the airline running, I need to change my timetable (I alter fleets.sql, fleettype_routes.sql and routes.sql).
Now is the inconsistency based on the following:
Since the flights are Regular Simacars flights, I can find in the VAMPIREPS table in the database these flights:
Callsign: WA1545 and flight: WA1545, but the route_id states: 1137

Looking at the ROUTES table I find at route_id: 1137 the following flight: AF1733.

It means that the VAMPIREPS used the route_id column to connect to the ROUTES route_id to get the Flight. That is how this inconsistency happens.

Unaltered it means that you can only enter one time a timetable and not renew it anymore (unless you add routes after).

How it is now: VAMPIREPS -> route_id -> ROUTES -> route_id -> Flight
How it should be: VAMPIREPS -> flight -> ROUTES -> flightt

I also know the file that needs to be altered is: plane_info_public.php

Now I come with a solution, but I like to know from people that are better in PHP how I can get this connection.
So not: VAMPIREPS -> route_id -> ROUTES -> route_id -> Flight
But: VAMPIREPS -> flight -> ROUTES -> flight.

If someone knows php how to get this done, please let me know :)
