Rank information for your pilots is crucial
to your pilots enjoyment with VAFS. You can
choose to auto rank your pilots when they hit a
certain number of hours.
Ranks are now paid per hour flown. For
information on how to pay your pilots here is a
link that shows what real airlines pay the
pilots that fly for them.
6.1 Adding a new rank
In order to add a new rank you need to fill
in the following data fields.
RANK NAME: Name
of the rank you are adding (e.g. Captain)
LOWEST AMOUNT OF HOURS:
The low hours for this rank you MUST include the
tenth of the hour for this to work. (e.g. 10.1)
HIGHEST AMOUNT OF
HOURS: The highest amount of hours for
this rank. You must include the tenths of the
hour for this to work. (e.g. 20.1)
The amount the pilot will be paid per hour (look
at link at the top of this section on ideas of
how much to pay each rank).
This field is for those airlines that want to
pay their pilots more if they fly over this
amount of hours in a month. Overtime pay is 150%
of regular pay. (e.g. If this is set at 20 and a
pilot is paid 100.00 per hour, when that pilot
has flown over 20 hours in a month that pilot
would start to be paid 150.00 per hour. This is
reset every month automatically).
