 DO NOT create a flight document weeks before your flight. ​ It's just not possible to be confident that far out that the wind and weather will allow for a safe flight. ​ Generally predictions are very variable until about 3-4 days prior to the flight, so that's a good time to create the flight document. DO NOT create a flight document weeks before your flight. ​ It's just not possible to be confident that far out that the wind and weather will allow for a safe flight. ​ Generally predictions are very variable until about 3-4 days prior to the flight, so that's a good time to create the flight document.

-Now you are ready to get the flight document approved - until then it will not get added to the calendar or the flight list in dl-fldigi. ​ Approval is done on the #habhub IRC channel which you can join here - http://webchat.freenode.net/?​channels=habhub.  Once joined, paste your flight document ID and a bot will display a status message, including whether you tested the payload document or not (and if you didn'​t,​ give yourself a slap for not following the instructions above!). ​ Of course you did follow those, so the bot will show "​Tested 5 minutes ago" or similar, so you can now ask for the flight document to be approved. ​ If an admin is around then, assuming the flight document is in order (which essentially means that it references a payload document which you have successfully tested) then they will approve it.+Now you are ready to get the flight document approved - until then it will not get added to the calendar or the flight list in dl-fldigi. ​ Approval is done on the #habhub IRC channel which you can join here - https://web.libera.chat/#​highaltitude.  Once joined, paste your flight document ID and a bot will display a status message, including whether you tested the payload document or not (and if you didn'​t,​ give yourself a slap for not following the instructions above!). ​ Of course you did follow those, so the bot will show "​Tested 5 minutes ago" or similar, so you can now ask for the flight document to be approved. ​ If an admin is around then, assuming the flight document is in order (which essentially means that it references a payload document which you have successfully tested) then they will approve it.
