Looks like your column headers got switched around, Ken. Nice work getting this up fast, though.

Hey Ken--if you resubmit a flight for a leg will the new URL overwrite the old? I've made several of the flights but haven't submitted them. I am thinking of a restart since I cheated at Bakersfield, landing below minimums.

Hey Steve,
I'm traveling and don't have access to the code. If I recall correctly, you should be able to submit the same flight leg multiple times. If you want the prior one deleted just drop me a note and I can remove it from the database.

Steve, maybe you should remove the "rule" for the Challenge to be completed by the end of 2015. I noticed that at least one relative newcomer to PE has completed it this year (2016), and the rule may discourage newer pilots from entering.

Hey.
I'm considering starting on flying those flights.
Would it be okey to fly ifr in only 1 direction each flights? And then at the last flight fly the routes back again opposite way?

Regards
Anders - a happy new pilot on pilotedge

Hi Anders,

You are welcome to fly the entire challenge IFR, VFR or any combination or IFR & VFR. However, the page which records your flights (http://www.myflightroute.com/alphainput.php) will only log flights made in sequence from 1-35. Logging of flights made in the opposite direction is not supported.

EDIT: 9/20/2016 - apparently it doesn't currently check that flights are executed in sequence, my mistake.

FYI - to date, the following 25 pilots have completed the challenge:

  1. Brian Winney (2822) 2/8/2015 21:30
  2. Todd Payne (5750) 2/12/2015 14:37
