You are encouraged to fill out the Pilot Preferences section of your pilot profile. This will help us to better target missions to you that are potentially of interest. There will be many different ways the coordination team will use this data, but currently the main way is via a missions available e-mail.
There is a third missions available e-mail that goes out on a weekly basis that is more specific to the individual volunteer receiving it. The missions in the e-mail are being rated, and they are being targeted for you based on the pilot preferences in your profile. The green stars represent a score for you based on your preferences on a three-point scale. Any missions that don’t meet your “maximum” preference criteria, e.g. the maximum total weight in your profile, have been excluded from the list.
