This will take you to the Flight Detail Page where you can dispatch the flight for use in ACARS. ACARS allows you to facilitate your status on the MTN Flight Board as well as record your flight log automatically. Please remember when dispatching your flight that you are scheduling your pushback/start time. Look at the flight board and schedule your pushback/start time 4 Min after the last flight time scheduled. Please make sure you are ready for pushback/start at your requested time. If for some reason you can’t be ready, just reschedule your time and coordinate with the other pilots after you for the next possible pushback/start time.

Pilots of all levels of experience are encouraged to join the flight regardless of available navigation programs. Use VOR to VOR navigation if necessary and ask other pilots for directions if ATC is not available for vectors.

Hope to see you in the "Group Flight Skies" soon!

I flew this flight, seemed like a lot of folks were having issues with filing for ATC clearance as nearly all of us were told by ATC that our final destination was NOT KDCA.

I think there is an error in the flight number assignment that needs to be looked at.

Also I was on teamspeak in the Currently flying area, yet the others never came to that channel.

The ATC guy at Indianapolis center was very helpful in getting the flight plans reset.

KDCA was pretty choppy on approach and as always a pain in the rear to land at. :D

It looks like the rout is for KCRW to KPHL. I went to suggest an updated route and the flight that came up was KCRW to KPHL so I changed it to KDCA . I will talk to Bill and see if we can get this corrected and have Jake check the routs as he is scheduling them. I have run into this problem in the past.
