attendant. Each of them has a dedicated screen.
- 3 break patterns : 1, 2 ou 3 breaks for flight attendant , and an
extented mode for pilots where breaks can have different relative
- 2 calculation modes : Overall flight time overflow allowed
- Optional rounding to 5 minutes.
Because its even better when working is fun , you can freely download a

. Later on ,a PayPal version
should be available for people who do not have a Google account. Once
installed, the application will switch to the smartphone language (
french, or english)
Starting the application
Once installed , click on the green icon.
The application has 2 modes ,depending on the user ( 'Pilot' or 'Flight
Attendant' ) .
'Flight Attendant' is the default mode , which you can change
back and forth using your handset 'menu' button. Just click the menu
entry ( 'Pilot' or 'Flight Attendant' ).You choice will persist for a
later use of the application.
( 'Pilot' Mode)
The main screen is a form where you have to edit.
Enter the desired breaks sequence.
There are 2 input formats available : A simple one and an advanced one.
- The simple format requires 1 digit
which defines the number of desired breaks.
For instance , '2' says one want a serie
of 2 breaks
with a time interval in between. The interval is defined in another
- The advanced one is a serie of integer or
decimal values . Each value is 1 digit with an optional prefix.
'3' means 3 , '.3' means 0.3
and '/3' means 1/3 = 0.33333 ...
With this format , the number of digits
number of breaks.The digit itself tells the relative length of breaks.
For instance , 31 means there are 2
breaks with a
constant time interval in between , and the first break is 3 times the
There are sevral
ways to specify the same breaks sequence , for instance .3/3
mean the same.(break 1=1 * break 2)and are another writing of '11'
Just use the values and format that is
intuitive to you. Its probably wise to use integers with the smallest
break equals to 1.
The most generic syntax is CODE 1 , ... ,
, where CODE = DIGIT or '.' DIGIT or '\'
DIGIT and N <=4
The screenshots expose a situation where we want a serie
of 4 breaks , where the break number 2 and 4 in are
longer than the 2 others.
Hence the vale '1212'
- First break start time , with 4 digits ( HHMM format ).
- Last break start time , with 4 digits ( HHMM format ).
- Break transition interval , with 2 digits (MM format).
- Press 'Calculate'
Hold your finger for a second on a field to get a tooltip.
The break sequence appears.
To simplify the results , check the checkbox 'Round'
which will round break times to a multiple of 5 minutes.
A flight time overflow would display in red. This would only happen if
you check 'overflow allowed'
However , this will result in even simpler breaks , which have the same
When relative break weights are different , breaks with the same weight
would have the same length in this case.
( 'Flight Attendant' Mode )
This mode has minor differences.
remplace and simplify the 'rest sequence' texfield , which , as far as
we know , is not needed by flight attendants.
to right , each button respectively defines 1,2 or 3 breaks when
activated. Also ,instead of the 'End of break' time , you have to
- The second service length , which has a default value of 1
- The descent time.
The result will look similar to the pilot mode , but you will get an
extra line for the second service.
Pressing the smarpthone's 'menu' key , will take you to the

Hold your finger for a second to take the snapshot.
Or , you may download a picture as a wall paper. Enter the picture
