NAVPAK VERSION 15.0 (JANUARY 2004)†
-† NEW FEATURES AND ENHANCEMENTS

Reformatted Pilot and Pax Schedules to accommodate long Names - Some place names are longer than sixteen characters, and even when truncated were overwriting the fields next to them on the Scheduler reports. Now the Pilot Schedule, the two versions of the Passenger Schedule, and the Pilot Schedule with LegNotes have been redesigned to make more room for long names.

Dates formatted with Month now spelled out - Previous versions of NAVPAK have stated dates as month-day-year. This can be confusing to NAVPAK users in the US (for example, 03-02-04) and in other countries which present dates in a different order. NAVPAK now show dates in day-month-year order, with the month stated as three alphanumeric characters (for example, 10-FEB-04). This should help eliminate confusion.

Date and Time displays on Passenger Leg Notes screen- On the Passenger Notes screen, accessing any leg will display the airport IDs, departure date, departure time, and arrival time on the screen. This feature saves time and clicks by making it unnecessary to return to the Scheduler screen to see this information.

Passenger Segment Fee increased to $3.10- From 1998 through 2002, the Domestic Passenger Segment Fee increased every year by $.25. In 2003, the Segment Fee remained at $3.00, the same Fee as in 2002. Beginning in January 2004, the Segment Fee has been increased to $3.10 per passenger per leg. This Fee is automatically calculated if you use the 7.5% U. S. Tax on Passengers, and is added into the total tax.

Easier way to enter Dates in Scheduler and Bidder - In previous versions of NAVPAK, clicking on the arrows to the right or left of the month or year on the Calendars has often caused the wrong month or year to be selected. Now clicking on these arrows calls a dropdown with the names of the months or years spelled out (in the case of years, as Last Year, This Year, and Next Year). When you click on a month or a year, that information will be plugged into the header of the Calendar. (Note: if you are updating a Calendar that includes a Start Date Calendar and an End Date Calendar, updating the Start Date Calendar and clicking on Accept Dates will also update the End Date Calendar.)

Paste to Cursor location on Passenger Leg Notes screen - On the Passenger Notes screen, FBO and Hotel data can be pasted below the previous entry by left clicking on the Paste FBO or Paste Hotel button, or can be pasted to the position of the cursor in the Leg Note by right clicking on the Paste FBO or Paste Hotel button. Note: if you right click to paste, the Leg Note will be reformatted to eliminate large numbers of carriage returns.

Optionally suppress Segment Fee in Bidder -- The Domestic Segment Fee can now be suppressed in the Bidder by accessing the Fine Tune screen and clicking on Set Defaults. Select the Default file you wish to use for the suppression and click on the button that says Press to "Supress" FAA Seat Tax. Then save your changes to the Default file. When a trip is created using that Default file, the number of passengers per leg will display, but the Leg Totals on the Bidder screen will be set to zero. To restore the Segment Fee calculation, simply use Set Defaults to modify the Default file and click on the button that now says Press to "Include" FAA Seat Tax.

Easier way to enter Number of Passengers in Bidder - The # Pax field has been moved to the left side of the Bidder grid so that it can be seen without expanding grid to show more details. The number of passengers can now be modified by putting the cursor on the # Pax field and clicking on the arrow next to an overlay that displays. Click on the number desired (from 0 up to 99) and it pastes automatically.

Departure Time Shown in Bidder - If you would like to include a departure time in your Worksheet, click on Set next to the date field on the Bidder screen. Type the Departure time and click on am or pm. Then click on Accept dates. The Departure time will also display in the date field on the Bidder screen. (Note: the Departure time does not display in the Bid or Invoice).

Net Costs reflected on Bidder screen - If you put your cursor on any of the first three fields on the right side of the Bidder screen (Gross aircraft charges, Adjustment, or Total Base Charge), a Cost Details overlay will display. The last three rows of this display reflect Net Cost per Nautical Mile, Net Cost per Statistical Mile, and Net Cost per Kilometer.

More refined Search capability on Names & Addresses screen - It is now possible to search by up to six characters in the Client Finder field of the Client List screen. You can type the first one through six letters of the name. Backspace to clear text previously entered. This increased precision is useful if you have a large number of names in your Client database.

New way of reporting Adjustments - The Adjustment field (line 2 on the right side of the Bidder screen) has been used by NAVPAK to report adjustments and discounts, Trip Minimums, and Day Minimums. In addition, an extra discount line is available on the Wait-time charges row. In the interest of clarity, these considerations are now reported in a new panel on the Fine Tune screen. When you access Fine Tune, a new button captioned "Line Two Adjustments" will display. Clicking on that button will open up the Fine Tune screen to display a Line Two Adjustment grid which will list Gross aircraft charges, Day minimum adjustment, Trip minimum adjustment, 1st Discount, 2nd Discount, and Total base charge. Whichever of these adjustments are being calculated will be indicated with a "Y". Adjustments that are not currently in effect will be indicated with an "N". (For instance, if both a Trip Minimum and a Day Minimum are present in the Aircraft Performance file used, the Minimum which generates the highest dollar value will be honored.) To enter an Adjustment, type in the dollar amount and percentage (if used) in the fields captioned "Enter discounts or add-ons here." Only two Adjustments can be in effect at any time. For instance, you can have either a Day Minimum or a Trip Minimum in affect (but not both) and one Discount (or Adjustment), or you can have two Discounts (or Adjustments).

NAVPAK optimized for European customers - When you set your Regional and Language settings to Italian (Italy), you will find that the NAVPAK Costs and Winds screen will indicated that the Currency used is Euro. Currency amounts will be indicated in the Bidder using the Euro sign and Italian formatting (commas substituted for periods). Days and months will be printed in Italian on the Scheduler screen and in the printed reports.

Timekeeper now listed on Alternate Drives screen- The Crew-time module allows you to select your Duty & Time files from an alternate directory, but always defaults to your base directory. If you would like to be able to always access the Crew Times module from an alternate drive, you can locate Alternate Drives-Folders from the REVIEW button on the NAVPAK startup screen, select your non-standard directory, and click on the Altern. Path column next to the row captioned "Crew Time Sheets - Part 135."

Super Search has moved further into Europe - With this release of NAVPAK Super Search the following countries have added: Poland, Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia and Hungary. In addition, many smaller towns have been added to the countries which were already in Super Search such as France, Denmark, Sweden and the United States.
