How to Create a Standby Booking

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a Standby booking.

Standby bookings allow you to create a booking for an aircraft, at the same time as an already existing flight booking. This means you will be able to create a backup flight in case you have reasons to believe your first booking may be canceled. 

NOTE: According to your Schedule Settings, you might have the Aircraft and User constraints that prevent double bookings. With Standby bookings, you will be able to create two flights with the same aircraft or users, without double booking.

For example, if the Instructor Frank Cross is sick and he might not be able to arrive at the scheduled flight, you can create a Standby booking at the same time of the first flight, as a backup with another instructor until you know if Frank Cross will join the crew or  not.

Let me show you how to do this.

1. First, log in to your account.

2. Go to the Schedule Module.

3. Select the flight booking that includes Frank Cross as an instructor and click on “Copy booking”.

4. Here you will be able to edit all the information you need. I am going to change the instructor Frank Cross to Katrina Bennet and maintain the rest as it is.

5. Now check on the “Standby” box under Booking type.

6. And save.

You will now have two bookings with the same aircraft at the same time. The Standby booking will show with a grey border and a “Standby” distinction in the description dialog.

When you are ready to make the decision, just cancel the extra booking, and the remaining one will appear as the main booking. If you decide to maintain the standby booking, click on “Edit booking” and uncheck the “Standby” box.
