Re: Automated Pilots

To be honest I was one of those in the 15%, but now people are discussing it, I could see a "Manager Mode" being something attractive to bean counter game player types. Integrating with flyable routes will be the trick tho. Senior Captain Stacy may be onto something with separate route numbers for a...

Re: Fleet management

Again, as you say Joe... complicated. But take a look at how our ranks are set up. And you will see more what I am talking about. By having each pilot his/her own rank, that allows permissions for just about any way we need to go. Our First Officer and Captain ranks which are standard for new pilots...

Re: Fleet management

Because we are a smaller operator, we have the luxury of giving each pilot a unique rank once they clear orientation and minimum hours. This allows us to assign whatever we need to assign to each specific pilot. The only problem with "Fleet Ranks" is then the pilot is tied specifically to only that ...

Re: Cargo System/Packages

We have found you do not have to be stuffed full of package cargo to make a profit. In fact you can still make a profit with just passengers and generic cargo. So any little you can grab will help for sure. The biggest thing to teach, I think, is to get pilots to only take what can be delivered on t...

Re: Automated Pilots

The new rules limit pilots to a maximum of 60 hours of flight duty per week, defined as 168 consecutive hours. In any consecutive 28-day period, a pilot cannot exceed 290 hours, of which no more than 100 can be flight time. During 365 consecutive days, pilots cannot exceed 1,000 flight time hours. T...

Re: New Feature - Aircraft conversions

FYI, many people (including us) simply change the seating layouts to 0 in some aircraft as the database for the pax model has cargo capacity at ZFW-DOW=Cargo capacity. The database for pax planes will need to be updated to make this conversion application "required" in order to fly max cargo payloads.

Re: Out for a few days

Thanks for all you've done Joe! And "having to go back to work" means you are on the mend and not forever "retired due to medical issues" like some of us. Having your health means everything first and foremost. Don't overdo it at work, ease back in to it.

Wishing you well and happy flying!

Post by joefremont » Fri Aug 09, 2019 6:01 am Sam, Sabahassani, Stan and Harvester, I can not thank you enough for the help you have given me on testing this cargo system. I am sure we are not done, no software product is ever really done, but the help you have provided has really made big differen...

Re: Cargo System/Packages

Is there any way to limit Cargo/Package operations to 1x flight time operations? Seems a bit unfair for guys to go scooping up large amounts of package cargo in big freighters then flying them 16x speed while more realistic operators slug along at normal flight times. If it' sounds like whining, the...

Re: Cargo loads

Jucebox85 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 10:34 am Is it just me, or is there no way to change the amount of cargo loaded? There has never been a way to adjust cargo load, a sticky point with me over the years. And now with the new cargo system, don't look for anything any time soon either. How would the system...

Re: Automated Pilots

At the risk of popping your 'happy balloon' on this idea, you would have to keep the autobot pilots out of the new cargo system or they will milk it dry leaving us hard working humans looking for work. :shock:

Re: Cargo beta testing

Had a pilot make a mistake in trying to load his plane and now we have two "packages not delivered" but they are INCOME transactions and not EXPENSE transactions.
