Re: Fly By Wire A32NG Fuel Consumption

Just came across a FB post that confirms changes to FBW fuel loading. We have recently improved the A32NX flight model and finalized our weight and balance loading integration available on the development version. Please note: - We have disabled the MSFS fuel and weights UI to prevent issues. - Use ...

Re: Fly By Wire A32NG Fuel Consumption

Thanks Mike. I now realise fuel purchased through FSA Client no longer automatically adds to aircraft. I attempted another flight this time monitoring fuel loaded into FBW from Simbrief plan. Only 7400 odd lbs loaded. Edited Simbrief plan adding reserves for good measure. Recommended 21000 some odd ...

Fly By Wire A32NG Fuel Consumption

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing excessive fuel consumption in the FBW A32NG in Zmsfs. I have been flying this aircraft for the last 10 months. Recently i am finding I am running out of fuel on any flight even where a flight is well within aircraft range. According to the FSA Flight Bri...

Re: Scrapping special use aircraft.

Hmm our AN225 has recorded 14 flights between April 2020 and current. 14 flights in 18 months is hardly dominating the package market. Probably now time to move it into the livery museum.

Re: Pumpkins

Should the focus initially be on inactive/defunct VA fleets with a review of aircraft availability after? We are a small but active va . We have a number of aircraft deliberately placed into long term storage. Some will be approaching the 18 months - 2 year mark. Would these be forced into compulsor...

Re: Government and Airline Bailouts

I had recently toyed with this. Ultimately I decided it was my choice to fly in MSFS and that Joe already had more than enough to do with FSA. MSFS is now 12 month plus. Yes there are issues with each world update but hot fixes are generally issued pretty quickly. I flew in FSX-SE for years and flyi...

MSFS FBW A32NG parking brake not recognised by Client

Anyone else finding it impossible to finish recording a flight in MSFS using FBW A320NG. With the last updates of the FBW A320 Developer Version, FSA Client is unable to read parking break state at gate after landing, meaning the flight cannot be completed. Keyboard command does not work either. Any...

Re: Maintenance times.

I too commend Joe on the inbuilt management realism. I think there has to be a balance between features and workload for FSA Admin. If we add in Wi-Fi etc it follows that ticket prices on aircraft with these features would also rise. A quick random check shows tkt prices VHHH-EGLL already range from...

Re: Booked Flight Not Flown Causes Late Packages

And perhaps that is the role of the CEO/VA Manager. Not every business decision returns a profit. Minimising the loss as described is a sound strategy I too have used. Our virtual ideal can sometimes be overshadowed by real life events as opposed to lack of thought/training or simply greed. Next ste...

Re: Game Crashes, what's the protocol?

I know its a pain but I uninstalled and reinstalled my sim two MSFS updates ago because I had CTD after blue flight load bar completed but before scn turned over to show plane sitting at gate or rwy with yellow Fly Now box. If CTD occurs when flights are not tracked then issue is less likely to be w...

Re: Game Crashes, what's the protocol?

Just a suggestion and not trying to tell you to suck eggs but, deal with the crash to desktop (ctd) first before using the Tracking Client. There is lots of info on the net (google) around ctd and many support forums. Not sure at what point in flight ctd occurs. If you save untracked flight regularl...

Re: Fuel Dumping

Exceeding max landing weights should be addressed by individual VAs and their position on realism, in my opinion. Too complex otherwise and the comments around discouraging simmers are valid. Time is always an enemy. If an aircraft is auto grounded for 24 hrs this issue (time) would be compounded. H...
