Flight Calendar (FC) Overview

The Flight Calendar (FC) is what you see after BC starts (after you pass the registration screen if you have not yet registered).  You can think of the FC as your airline and life "reality".  It is also the operations hub for Bid Central.  The menu items at the top of the FC give you access to all primary Bid Central functionality.  After you have processed pairings for a given month, the pairing number list will be populated next to the FC.  Those pairings will be then be available for use in BC and on the BC FC.   This is the calendar on which you put all of your scheduled activities for the month and any pairings your are assigned.  It will also show any important dates (e.g. birthdays) you defined in your User Profile.  It will also show any holidays you have elected to appear.  Additionally, you can type any other information you want inside any calendar day block.  That way it can become a complete family calendar.  You can print this calendar out in any number of ways, and can even create an html (web page) version of the calendar which you can email to family and friends.  Below is a series of links explaining how to do things with your FC.
