Disappointed? Look Here :)

@everyone that is disappointed or unhappy here please feel free to speak up and tell us if you wish to remain a member or not. I have absolutely no Problem with anyone wanting to leave.

We took over the Airline in February, and since then I have spent most if not all of my free time Updating things and working on a new Flight Operations Center. I am not going to dig too much into the code of Peter and Norbert since it is:
  • very old
  • largely undocumented
  • not able to use current technologies such as newer versions of PHP, MySQL etc.
When we took over management of the airline Peter, Norbert, Christian and myself decided that it is probably best to re-write the entire website and focus on that.

That is what I have been doing, however this does not happen over night, nor do I have 24/7/365 to code. I do work and have a family that requires my attention and time.

I also requested anyone interested in helping to step forward and talk to us .. thus far out of all the members only 3 have done that.
I am a bit disappointed at this, had i known of the lack of interest in actually doing some good for children around the world by way of our hobby I would have said ... oh well let air-child.com close as Peter and Norbert had planned if they could not find any one to take over.

Five months have passed since we took over management and the Staff team still is only comprised of 7 people. I would really like that to increase but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

I will leave you with a few screenshots of what is in the works

Mind you this is a work in Progress.

I will post updates concerning the development as things progress and are worthy of showing.

Yeah, looks good. A lot more info on the flight plan.

If I understand correctly, those empty fields on top will be the essential data you fill out in FSX? Like the top left column of the old plan? So, if you're a seat of the pants regional pilot that's all you need, right?

Although the old site is like a good friend to me it's probably the wisest decision. With all these virtual attacks around it's also not good to keep using ancient software.

Is this based on existing software or all custom made?

Indeed, better than all the complaining.

I think members should take this into account before complaining about stuff. There's only so much a few people can do...

It is an all custom coded system ... once i get the fleet transferred into it I will be looking for beta testers ... i sure hope there is a better response to that than there was for staff positions.
