Flight packs are classified by chronological order in the platform, this means according to the date and hour of the first flight posted by the host or the instructor, from the earliest flight to the latest.
Furthermore, on the top of each page of results, a « Filters » block is located. These filters allow to refine search results by :
(i) the distance regarding a specific address given by the user, classifying then the results from the closest to the furthest ;
(ii) the date or within the specific and given dates by the user, classifying then the search results by chronological order for the date or within the given dates, that means according to the date and hour of the first flight as posted by the host or the instructor, from the earliest flight to the latest ;
