Compass 7th Birthday

#1 Post by Jackson Harding » Tue Sep 16, 2008 11:30 am

Compass celebrated our 7th birthday last Wednesday, 10th Sep. We've had another great year and we capped it off on our birthday by unveiling CADS, the Compass Automated Dispatch System. CADS allows our pilots to search for and then be assigned a flight with the system assigning the airframe, gates, pax and cargo loads and providing nice dispatch paperwork for the pilot to print out and use for the remainder of their flight planning. We had decided to do something on the night to celebrate however due to my work commitments our effort to hold an impromptu flyin for the event fell a bit flat.

So this week we'll try again. Thursday 18th September we'll go back to where it all began, for both the real life Compass and our VA with a flyin to the Gold Coast.

Fire up your favourite aircraft and join us, Compass pilots: you can find yourself a suitable flight out of CADS, and either head to or depart from the Gold Coast. So that visitors can see all of CADS (and perhaps even use it for our Birthday flyin) we've created a guest login for VATNZ Visitor.

When the system asks you for a login if you use the following details:

ID: YM998
password: vatnzrules

and then you'll be able to use the full system, right to printing out the pdf dispatch documents. This will be available for the rest of the week.

Be warned, for security the system logs IPs of everyone who uses it.

Kick off is at 1930 AEST (2130NZST, 0930Z sorry it's so late) till stumps.
