5th September 2021

The aimsgui software is updated to version 1.0.1. This is a minor update to work around what appears to be a bug in AIMS, where, for a certain FO, "FO>FD" appears before their name in the crew list section of the roster instead of the normal "FO>".

The aimsgui instructions have also been updated to specify that the airframe lookup feature and the night flying calculation will only work correctly if the roster being processed has the times in UTC rather than local.

A320 Family Non-normal notes updated to version 3.0. Significant improvements to wording, structure and typography have been made throughout the document.

8th April 2021

The MacOS section of the aimsgui installation and usage instructions has been updated.

26th March 2021

Updated aimsgui to version 1.0. This update adds the option to remove the header from csv output. This removes a bit of friction when using this output with a spreadsheet based logbook. The example spreadsheet logbook has also been updated with a slightly more advanced version, featuring sub-totals by type, role and night/day and totals relevant to FTL limitations.

18th March 2021

Updated aimsgui to add a "Night" column to the csv output. This is a number between 0 and 1 that, when multiplied by the duration of the flight, will give you the duration of regulatory night flying (30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise). The calculation for this uses an assumed great circle routing to continually assess the day/night status at the aircraft's position throughout the flight, so it is much more accurate than using the values for origin or destination.

Updated Summary of easyJet manuals to version 2.1.1. This update adds the NEO fan blade ice shedding procedure and updates external cross references in the Winter Operations section.

10th January 2021

Updated Quick Reference to version 1.4. This update mainly adds data for A321 NEO and updates external cross references.

6th January 2021

Updated Summary of easyJet manuals to version 2.1. This has a completely rewritten section on easyJet Oceanic Operations to account for the many recent changes in North Atlantic operational procedures. I am particularly interested in feedback (email address above) on this new section as it is put together from multiple sources including NAT documentation and relevant state AIPs, meaning that there is a greater than normal chance of something being incorrect or something useful being omitted.
