How do I find pilots along my flight route?
After you post your transport request on Ride Board, you will see colored links at the top of your post. Click More Mapping Options to get a list of pilots along your flight route. Names of the pilots are listed on the left side of the screen. Click the name of a pilot and a bubble will appear with a link to the pilot's profile (where contact information is given) along with a link to send the pilot a private message through the forum. Also be sure to check Space on Planned Flights for scheduled flights along your flight route.
Is there a way to find pilots by zip code?
Yes, you can look them up by city and state or by zip code using this form. http://pilotsnpaws.org/forum/phpbb_transport.php
If you know their user name you can use the Find User link at the top right.
