In our next release of scheduling, we will offer an option that allows students to schedule a lesson (i.e. an aircraft or boat with an instructor). If this option is turned on, a students could book a resource even under the following circumstances - both only if scheduling at the same time as an instructor:
- they had an expired data, such as a BFR or medical
- they are not checked out in the resource (assuming checkouts are required)
- they do not have the hours required for currency (assuming currency is required)
If a student schedules a lesson (aircraft/boat with an instructor), the system will not allow cancellation of the instructor unless they meet all of the requirements on their own or if they cancel the entire lesson.
