Creating a new composition
Below is an example to illustrate how the user can set up new crew complements for a certain aircraft (as default).
The airline already has set up crew composition for their ATR300/500. It is: 1 X Captain, 1 X First Officer and 1 X Cabin Attendant.
They will start operating an ATR72 aircraft, starting in the beginning of December and they want to build the crew composition and start preparing crew rosters. All cabin crew can fly the ATR300/500 but when it comes to the ATR72, they must also be qualified as either a Cabin Attendant Senior or a Cabin Attendant Junior. Note. The cockpit crew can fly both ATR300/500 and ATR72 aircraft.
Their requirements are:
1. Make their existing cabin crew either a 1 or 2. (1 = Senior, 2 = Junior))
2. N-OC must check that on the ATR72 there are always one of the following crew compositions:
a. 1 and a 2 or
b. Two number 1s
c. It prevents the crew planners from assigning two number 2s on board.
3. The cockpit must be qualified to fly both ATR300/500 and ATR72 aircraft.
