SMILE upload with OF3.0alpha

26 Nov 2010

The SMILE file (from the french aeronautic federation) import module is taking shape.

As usual, we have complicated where we could have done simple. This will to complicate things is explained by:

  • allow to easily adapt the system for the day the SMILE export format will change
  • be able to import any type of format from any source

This translates into the need to create a type of import with queries to define as for the reports where we got access to SQL queries.

The advantage is obvious: the tool is definitely powerful and open.

In parallel, we will attack the second part of this import module: engine with automatic billing and in advance the possibility of charging qualifications.

Free parameters in the generation of reports

11 Jul 2010

The report engine is enriched by the possibility of creating parameters freely.

We aim, in OpenFlyers, is to let our customers the opportunity to shape the application according to their own needs. It is this objective that fits the report generator, unique and practical tool.

Now you can freely create as many parameters as you want and which will thus give you the capability to deal with more powerful reports.

Moreover parameters that can be created are of two types:

    "generic" parameters (number, date,etc.)
    database parameters which represent an element in the database (user, aircraft, etc.)

This feature thus allows the administrator to create report types even more powerful and to the end user to generate reports for individual items (aircraft, user, etc..) and even mix parameters (obtain list of flights to a particular user on a given aircraft between such date and such date).

The documentation is online on the English wiki.

Informations flow

Now OpenFlyers 2.1 includes the possibility for the administrator to broadcast as many information messages as desired instead of a single message that appeared on the reservation page.

Some news about OpenFlyers

28 Oct 2008

Here are some informations about OpenFlyers software and its team.
About the OpenFlyers software

We are about to finish the version 2.0. There are still remaining some minor remaining bugs that we should correct in the next weeks.

The version 2.0 is no more completely free: it's a semi-free software to prevent a competitor to provide the software at half price without having to pay the development costs. This change is justified by the following explanations.

Change in the OpenFlyers team

We decided to move from an association to a limited corporate. A lot of reasons drive us to this choice. Here are some of them:

    since 1 year we have hired one employee to support the functionality of OpenFlyers. But our resources are limited in providing a reasonable compensation. But the employee is indispensable to keep the operation and to improve our service. The structure of a company enables us to obtain more resources and plan longer-term development.

    5 years ago, when we created the OpenFlyers association, we had 2 goals in mind: to create a solution requested by flight clubs and to federate around us to get help from flight clubs people. 5 years later, the first goal is achieved: flight clubs are satisfied of the software. But the second goal is a fail: we had some "times to times" help but no real movement enabling to share the work and to reduce the time spent by the team.
    OpenFlyers 2.0 added lots of functionalities for the flight clubs and we think that it is beneficial for both sides with a real customer/supplier relationship.


We have identified many areas for continuous improvement in future, and we hope that you will be satisfied with our service.

Number of reservations limitation

In the OpenFlyers release 2.0, it's now possible to set a maximum quantity of reservations in order to limit the number of reservations for each pilot.

OpenFlyers 1.3.0 release

12 Sep 2008

The OpenFlyers team did not leave on holidaycool this summer and it is with pleasure that we publish this new version which contains the following functionalities:

  • Addition of a right allowing not to have an automatic disconnection
  • List only ones availabilities when we are instructor
  • Possible restriction of the authorized booking period
  • Possibility of listing only ones books
  • Creation of the concept of plane non bookable
  • Differentiation of the minimum time of an instruction book versus alone book
  • It is now possible to carry out successive imports of files CSV
  • Addition of time scale every ten aircrafts / instructors
  • Possibility for the club of not making post the registration of a plane
  • Maximum time limit of a book
  • Possible cancellation of the past books while bringing back the hour of end per now.

Each option corresponds to a request formulated by one or more clubs.

Concerning the functionalities:

  • Possibility for the club of not making post the registration of a plane
  • Creation of the concept of plane non bookable

they are options which take their direction when coupled with the “reservation by type”. Indeed, you have the possibility in OpenFlyers 1.3 of being able to reserve the planes either by registration but by type of plane or to make “overbooking” by creating fictitious planes (in the same way standard).

Try out!

Some news from OF

12 Sep 2008

We continue to debug the OpenFlyers release 2. Some clubs use it already. This version includes accounts management and thus offers an on-line and fully integrated solution for the management of a flying-club. We continue to debug the OpenFlyers release 2. Some clubs use it already. This version includes accounts management and thus offers an on-line and fully integrated solution for the management of a flying-club.

We also designed a key panel for clubs wishing to control the distribution of the keys. If you are interested contact us.

Lastly, we will engage for one year a developer in order to accelerate the consolidation of OpenFlyers and to add functions for clubs hosted by our-self.

In order to finance this employment, we invite OpenFlyers clubs users to send to us money (especially for those which are not hosted by our-selves wink)

Destination on booking

12 Sep 2008

Following numerous requests from various clubs, we just added in version 2 of OpenFlyers a field enabling each pilot to clarify its destination. Following numerous requests from various clubs, we just added in version 2 of OpenFlyers a field enabling each pilot to clarify its destination.

Moreover, in order to "give" a little hand pilots, we have added an option activated by the administrator of the club, which allows you to oblige the pilot to clarify this famous destination.

Here is how it works:

- The field is empty by default (value "Other")
- If the user does nothing, no destination is taken into account
If the option-forcing the pilot to choose his destination is activated then a stop alert is displayed to ask the pilot to clarify its destination

The option to require the user to set his destination has 3 levels:
Non-functional (free entry)
- Strict (before mandatory for all flights except mechanical and cancel)
Strict - when the length of the reservation is greater than a certain value (to be chosen) multiple of 15 minutes, ranging from 15 minutes to 225 minutes (= 3:45).

We hope that all of this configuration will allow each club to set that element as it wishes.

OpenFlyers cuts hosting price by 2 for 1-aircraft-sharing

12 Sep 2008

We are glad to announce you that OpenFlyers has decided to divide his hosting price for 2008 for people sharing only ONE aircraft. New price is 4€ per month.
Others prices remain unchanged:
- 8€ per month for common flying structures
- 12€ per month for flying structures with more than 13 aircrafts and 400 members
- 16€ per month for flying structures with more than 20 aircrafts and 600 members

Better qualification management process

12 Sep 2008

Now OpenFlyers includes separated warning level for each qualification for flight management. So, you may define some compulsory qualifications and for other only display warning.It's useful for example for the pricing management: dealing correctly with qualifications enable you to prevent pilots to set a flight type for which they are not allowed (and which got a different price).Do not hesitate to ask more explanations on our forum.

New flight fields customization

12 Sep 2008

Now, when flight management is set, you may display/hide some fields...

  • statut
  • arrival counter (on flight opening)
  • POB
  • landings number
  • comments
  • airfields
