Merlion Website moved to flymerlion.org!

For over a month, merlion's web development team has been working on a new website for the airline! We've also built a new airline management system and are using what we like to call flightdeck, instead of the commonly used phpVMS because of the freedom we have to make our own additions, make any change that we want, write new systems without staying in phpVMS's limits. The looks of the new website is still in construction but a VA management system is ready for use! We've already had pilots filing pilot reports in the new website instead of the old.
Due to a change in password encryption system, previously registered pilots will need to reset their password here. The form will be closed in a few days, so if you miss it, please send an e-mail to support@flymerlion.org or webmaster@flymerlion.org!

Once you've registered or set your new password, you can either log in at the homepage, or go straight to the dashboard. The basic procedure for filing a flight report is slightly different from our old website. Here, you first log in, then go to Flight Search and search for your flight based on multiple optional filters including Departure Airport, Destination, Aircraft Type, Distance, and Scheduled Departure Time. Schedule Dep Time lets you look for flights based on the departure time and current UTC time, for example a flight scheduled to depart in the next 2 hours. Once you find the flight you're looking for, (the flight results page estimates the amount you would earn from flying this flight too!) you can book it by clicking on Book this Flight Now!. Then, in your Bookings page, you can either file a report on the selected flight or cancel your booking.

We're still working on parts of the website including our forum, information center, and some other stuff, so please bear with us for a little longer.

All of our data HAS been transferred from the old website (as of Jan 13, 2013) so you don't have to worry about losing your hours!

Thank you very much, and we hope you enjoy the new website!

And now, some screenshots of pages in the new website...

This screenshot shows the page displayed when I want to look at the stats of a flight I reported earlier.

Well, I suppose if you want to host images, nothing's better than using your own host! :roll:

Right click + "Open in New Tab" works well ;)
