Any additions, deletions, or changes to the Standard Aircraft Items list, including the order of the items, will be reflected in all Aircraft records both active and archived.

Making a Standard Aircraft Item Calculating or Non Calculating

Standard Aircraft Items can be designated as calculating or non calculating. This will make no difference in the way the event is tracked by ADCAR. Calculating events simply help to prevent errors by automatically calculating a future date based upon the event date entered and the desired interval. To make an event calculating simply enter an interval and define the interval as Days, Months or Years. If you would like to use Grace Month calculations with the event, select the "Grace" checkbox. To make an item non calculating, enter 0 for the interval or leave it blank.

 

Note: It is important to understand how ADCAR treats Day/Month/Year intervals. Day and Year intervals compute to the exact day. Month intervals compute to the last day of the calendar month. Events like pilot medicals and checkrides that are good to the end of the calendar month should use month intervals. Passports and events that are good only to the calendar day should use Day or Year intervals.
