For pilot hours it seems to use time logged on.

I don't know.

I still have no idea whether IVAO records your JHB flying hours from the
moment you log on, from the moment it detects a JHB callsign or whether a
PIREP is required.

If the first then all your log on hours will be recorded regardless of
callsign used. If the second then only JHB flights get noted. If the third
then no hours get recorded on IVAO unless a PIREP is filed. Although the
last seems the most logical it is also open to misuse - only the first two
are proven online records.

I still need to chase this up but I doubt it will be tomorrow.

To save us all having to do this thinking thing, can we rely on you to
advise whether we need to fill in a Pirep after each flight?

Both distances are wrong.

Great circle distance from IOM to Gatwick is 239nm. Standard airways
routing would add about 7% to this so say 255nm for going via A20 and
L10 - which makes IVAO the better of the two guesses.

I'll have to look at the JHB IVAO page to see what happens after you
file a report. I presume it automatically adds to the airlines totals.

Just completed my first IVAO PIREP form.

Needles to say, I was not prepared for the amount of information

Must set up a proper log book, and enter all the required information
at the

end of the flight.

FSC gave me a flight distance of 216nm, (EGKK-EGNS) but the IVAO
database said 274, must have shaved off nearly 50nm somewhere. Mind
you, the FSC database is not foolproof. Will have to get the routing

Impressed at the way the blue dots following me and each side of me,

to a yellow aircraft shape, when within 12nm, on the FSC screen, assume

was the TCAS warning.
