[-] Cabin Crew and Pilot bug???
« on: May 03, 2016, 07:31:48 AM »
Hi,

For a daily flight between 05:00 to 24:00

DC9 (in aircraft spec: min. 2 Crew and 2 Pilots - Large) for those daily flight need only 5 Pilots  10 Cabin Crew
A300(in aircraft spec: min. 7 Crew and 3 Pilots - Very Large) for those daily flight need only 30 Pilots  70 Cabin Crew
L1011 (in aircraft spec: min. 10 Crew and 3 Pilots - Very Large) for those daily flight need only 30 Pilots  90 Cabin Crew
VickersViscount (min 3 Pilots - Medium) for those daily flight need only 7 Pilots

can anyone explain me about Crew req in AWS? Is this normal? 30 Pilots is way to much!! right? Is this a bug??

cheers
Nusantara

Not a bug. The crew amount calculations are based on realictic requirements. It also always assumes that you fly a full schedule, so even if you have just one flight per day you will need to employ the "full" crew (also an usability thing - if you make small changes you do not need to adjust staff at all times).

OK i see... Thx for the info...

You said, that number based on Full Day Schedule then:

a small to Large Aircraft need around 5 Pilots (2 Sets + 1 Backup Pilot) to operate in one month.
Each sets (2 pilots) has to work 12 hours then .... plus 1 backup Pilot for sickness or Holiday.
and they dont have Weekend. puh
... it is hard condition to work as a small to large airplane Pilot in aws ....

a Very large aircraft have 10 sets to operate in one month. For Long Haul flight, it makes sense.
But if this only for short haul, then it should be different. It use then less Pilots.

May be you can consider this to improve the reality of AWS.
