For those addicted to aviation...

Welcome to Aviaddicts, a new way to share information, collaborate with others, and learn new things.

We are moving to a new website!

The new Aviaddicts!

Coming soon!

While times are tough at the moment with the pandemic and all, at least I've had the opportunity to put some long overdue work into the website. There are going to be quite a few changes, but what will really be noticeable is how the site looks. And I think when you see it you'll agree, it looks a lot nicer and more modern, with updated icons, menus, and photos. Here's a sneak peak.


So keep coming back because I hope to have migrated over to the new site soon. But in the meantime, stay well, stay safe, and stay close to family and friends. Good luck, and hopefully we will all get through this soon.

What's new...

We've now gone over to HTTPS which is a secure web browsing protocol. You won't notice any difference in your experience on Aviaddicts, but your password and other data are being encrypted behind the scenes to ensure your privacy.

Read this because we keep getting queries about it. There appears to be an issue with iOS that prevents importing an entire roster into your calendar in one go. This is not to do with Captain's Roster, but will hopefully be fixed soon. For more information, have a look at the Apple forums, for example here.

If you have sent an e-mail requesting support, we will endeavour to get back to you where possible, but in the meantime please use the I forgot my password option on the login page. Using this option will send an e-mail to your work e-mail address that will allow you to login again.

Remember that you can change your password at any time by clicking My Settings at the top right of each page. Try to keep your password secure to avoid hacking by botnets or people (yes, some people have nothing better to do).

Roster Sharing

Welcome to roster sharing. This is another feature that has long been on the list of 'to-dos', and now it's here. You can now share your roster with your friends on Aviaddicts, enabling you to organise and co-ordinate those rare days off to maximum effect. From now on, when you import your roster into Captain's Roster Online, it will become available to the people you choose. If you want to maintain complete privacy, you can do so, but if you want the ability to share rosters, that can be achieved too. Roster sharing is airline independent, so it does not matter where your friends work, you'll be able to share rosters. To find out more about how to use roster sharing, we've setup a forum that gives instructions and allows you to ask any questions you may have.

You can also print your roster directly from Aviaddicts now, eliminating the need to export and import into another calendar program just to print. This is done through My Settings, where you'll find an option under Calendar for Print.

We'd like to share a thank you to everyone using Aviaddicts for continuing to spread the word to colleagues and friends. Thanks to you, we saw a reason to not just continue, but to expand and improve. In particular, we'd like to thank those people who have updated and added content to the site, and those who actively participate in the forums. Your contributions are all appreciated, no matter how big or small they may be. You are contributing to the continued evolution of Aviaddicts!

The Aviaddicts Forums

Well after much procrastination, we have finally delivered a significant upgrade to Aviaddicts... The change in styling to the site should be obvious enough, although if things look a bit out of alignment you may need to Refresh Your Browser (usually done by pressing F5). Aside from that, we now have the Aviaddicts Forums /wiki/wikis/system/bin/forum.png, for those that like to keep the conversation going after you've done the reading in the wiki. Just click on the Forums link under Online Apps on the left for access. We've implemented a Single Sign-On system, so once you login to Aviaddicts, the whole site is available without logging in again. We'd love to hear any feedback you have, so drop us an e-mail if you have any comments on the new site.

As usual, your access to various parts of Aviaddicts will depend on what Company Email address you used to register on the site. If you didn't enter a Company Email address, you may be missing out. You can go to My Settings to change your details, however. And another tip... remember that, wherever you find yourself on Aviaddicts, just clicking on the logo in the top right will bring you back to this page, so you can navigate yourself around from there.

What is Aviaddicts?

Aviaddicts is an aviation related portal consisting of wikis and forums. The wiki format means that anyone can add or edit information using a simple wiki syntax, and have it immediately published on the internet for others to benefit from. If you've ever used other online wikis before, such as Wikipedia, you get the idea; and you'll find that Aviaddicts is easy to use and focussed on the information that interests you.

Who is it for?

Aviaddicts is open to enthusiasts and professionals in all aviation disciplines. It's a site built entirely by people like you - people with something to give back to the aviation community. Pilots, cabin crew, engineers, air traffic controllers, researchers, managers, ground staff, operations staff, and all other interested parties are invited to use Aviaddicts. Basically, the more people we have here, the more useful it is, so introduce a friend or colleague today!

Everyone who registers for Aviaddicts automatically receives their own Wiki Space, where you can keep information that's useful to you. Even if you're not involved in aviation, you can still sign up to get your Wiki Space.

What now?

If you just want to see what it's all about, try typing something in the search box to the left and clicking search. Or, check out how to edit a page using the sandbox.
