So how do you plan to work this? Should all UK session announcements posted
in the PC forum contain a link to your pages so users can book the
positions?

Bones,

I wouldn't leave you lads in the lurch without a formal booking procedure
would I!?

The forum will probably have to act as a booking system too. Two things we
lost when FPI closed was the booking system and the pilot/controller
hours/ranks records - neither of which I am convinced we will see again. The
bookings were handy because they showed that controllers were planning to
man positions for a session which, in turn, attracts pilots to take part. 
 
It may therefore be worth including in a thread announcing a weekly session
a list of the controller positions required for the evening as well as the
airports for the night. Controllers can then post a reply to say which
position they volunteer for. It's messier than the booking system but it
would at least show what pilots could expect on the night in terms of
controller coverage.


The FPI-Book was a highly under-used but incredibly useful system. I'm not
competent enough  to replicate it but until then I'd like to offer a more
basic, but formalised and centrally located, system. 


UK Airspace System Calendar


I am looking into how much I can customise it to fit our needs. 

The only thing I'm still wrestling with is the URL -  now Pilot Club is -
supposedly - live I probably really shouldn't still be using "FPI-UKI" but
for the moment I really can't afford to have this changed as I am
unemployed.
