  • Trying to add a new type - a frustrating experience...

    It is no wonder that new users to this site get disillusioned. I completed the new type form to add a sub type - a Piel CP-301B Emeraude for an upload of a shot of G-ASVG.
    https://www.airport-data.com/aircraft/G-ASVG.html
    This aircraft is however in the database as a Piel CP310 Emeraude with the last shot submitted in 2011. I would be quite happy to upload it using this but am not given this option in the pull down list under Piel.
    The response to my correction was
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Your submission for new aircraft

    Builder: Piel
    Type : Piel Emeraude
    Model :

    was rejected.

    Screener comments:

    This is about as useful as a chocolate teapot. Can someone please tell me what I need to do.

    Thanks

    It seems you have forgotten to fill the field Model with Piel CP-301B Emeraude.

    Have a good day!

        Hi Brian,

        As with several previous request I normally add a comment. But after seeing the same issues time and time again sometimes I do omit a comment. Indeed the builder was missing with the model name. Imo its quite clear to request a new type.

          Thanks Erwin. I did however include it. Somehow it did not show when it got to your desk. I will try yet again.

              On the last field you fill in model. But that has to include the builder also. So for example, you want to add Boeing 707-320, you fill in off course builder; Boeing, type Boeing 707, model Boeing 707-320 (So Boeing included, not just the type)

                  Hi all, just to add that the type already exist...as Piel CP301E Emeraude. I added the photo below, but it is a model "E", so possibly just the other model "B" is required.
                  Here the like to the photo: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9696604

                  But I agree...it was rather complicated to request a new type and just getting a reject without any comment (I did a few times).

                  Best Regards

                    To be honest. On the request page there is an example to fill a new request in, and also how not to do it. Quite clear.

                      Erwin, perhaps you could convey how clear it is by completing a screener comment in future should you feel that the complete information has not been provided - that would save time for everyone including you.

                        Afaik I normally post indeed a comment. But since it happend quite a few time.... And the instructions are clear if they are read before entering a request.

                        I am srry, but there are so many request coming in, airports or aircraft etc. But many do no read how to request them.
