Overview of the functionality and configuration of the Aircraft Categories configuration section.

All aircraft are categorised by “type”, regardless of the manufacturer. This simplifies the listing and searching of available aircraft.

Currently, the module supports 8 different categories. Each can be set to:

  • Active
    If a category is set to inactive, all aircraft in the category will be hidden from the website
