Looking for articles on flying OLC. Performance optimization. by Martin Gregorie[_6_]

Rear Seat Scoring by Bob Youngblood
I happen to be looking at some OLC scoring and noticed that there were rear seat ride along customers scoring flights on OLC as if they were the PIC. Is there any provision for making sure that the ride along is not permitted to score the flight as if they were the primary scoring individual.
