How do I update my aircraft costs and apply it to my flights?

As the price of fuel changes, you might find your hourly cost to fly goes up. You can change the hourly cost of your aircraft but then must also edit each of your already posted flights to reflect the new price. Here are the steps on how to do this: 

1. Click Cockpit and then Aircraft
 


You will see the list of your aircraft and the current hourly costs. 

2. Click edit on the aircraft you want to update.


3.  Click edit next to the information tab



4. Update the hourly cost of your aircraft to the new rate. Then press save and continue



Note the warning that you still need to update your posted flights that use the edited aircraft, in order for the new price to be reflected in what you will receive. 

5. Review the changes and press update aircraft




You now need to go to your already posted flights that use the edited aircraft, to update your costs so that the listed price is according to your new hourly rate.

6. Click cockpit and go to flight management



7. Select flexible flights or fixed flights to see the flights you have posted. 



8. Click the three dots next to the flight you want to change. Then select edit. 



9.  Click costs and then move the blue bar to the right to increase the total cost to reflect your new hourly cost. You will see a summary of what you will receive after the flight. Check the overview and then click update flight to save the new cost.




You will need to do this for each of your posted flights that use the edited aircraft. 
Your flights will now appear on the Wingly platform with the updated price and you will receive your updated share of the costs for new bookings. 

Flights that have already been booked by passengers will not have the price changed as the passenger will have already agreed and paid. If you are unable complete the flight due to the increased cost, you will need to cancel the booking and have the passenger re-book after you have updated the prices on your posted flights.
