Sending flights to another AirData account

Please note that you can "share" a single flight with other individuals, by creating a unique share link. This would allow others to view the flight. To share a flight, select it and click on the green "share" icon in the top right-hand corner.

However, the intent of this article is to demonstrate how to send flights from one AirData account to another.

On occasion, you may need to send flights from your AirData account to a separate AirData account. An example of when this would be necessary is if you have a personal AirData account, and your company has an AirData account that you will also be contributing to. To avoid having your personal flights be synced with your company's AirData account, we recommend using our "Send Flights to" feature. You would sync all flights with your personal account, and send your work flights to your company account.

To use this "Send Flights to" feature, either the AirData account the flights are sent from or the AirData account the flights are sent to need to be an Enterprise account.

Let's say that Kathryn would like to send flights from her personal AirData account to her work's AirData account.

Sending flights

Kathryn would head to "MY LOGS" -> "FLIGHTS", and select all of the flights she would like to send. Next, she'd click on "Actions", and "Send Flights to."

She would type in the email address of the primary user on the AirData account that she would like to send the flights to (in this case, trevor@airdata.com), and click on "Send Request."

Kathryn can see a list of the flights she has sent by going to "My Account" -> "Flights Sent."

Receiving flights

Next, trevor@airdata.com will receive an email, which includes a link to the page where he can either accept or ignore Kathryn's request. Note that trevor@airdata.com has the option to also import the equipment used for these flights.

Assigning the received flights

If the email address on the personal account that Kathryn sent the flights from is different from her pilot email address on the account she sent the flights to, AirData will create a "Guest" profile for her on the receiving account.

For example, if Kathryn's personal email is kathryn@gmail.com and her work email is kathryn@airdata.com, when she sends flights from kathryn@gmail.com to her work's AirData account, a Guest profile will be created for her on the work account, which can be found under "My Account" -> "Guests".

Trevor (or someone else with admin privileges) will likely want to change the Pilot-in-Command for Kathryn's flights from kathryn@gmail.com to kathryn@airdata.com to have the received flights appear under Kathryn's pilot profile on her work account, which is kathryn@airdata.com.

To accomplish this, Trevor would select the received flights, click on "Actions" -> "Assign Pilots/Roles", and type in Kathryn's work pilot profile email (kathryn@airdata.com). He'd then select "Replace existing Pilot-in-Command", and click on "Apply Changes."

The flights Kathryn sent from her personal account to her work account now show her work email as the Pilot-in-Command for the flights.
