Flight Data Collection Consultant
At the heart of every data analysis is a pool of events and observations gathered into a set of numbers and values. While you still have to make sense of these figures, the chore of collecting them into one convenient single point of information can be delegated to the Addon Flight Data Collection Consultant (FDCC)
To plunge into the data collection provided by the FDCC, maneuver to Operations -> Scheduled Fligths -> Historical and click on the blue database symbol next to each flight's take-off time. The resulting overlay is partitioned into four parts:
Flight Time Details
