Re: Take off weight problem

Yes, the Rick Piper Viscount 800.

As you say those figures have the exact 430 Kg discrepancy.

Re: Take off weight problem

I have tried all of the above but I am still always 430 Kg overweight. Even tried loading 430 Kg too much fuel, then going back and reducing it by 430 Kg but to no effect. The only way to get the client to start the flight is by clicking the change button against the passenger number. Any ideas, Joe??

Re: Take off weight problem

Anybody got any ideas on this one? It doesn't seem to matter how much fuel I load, it is still over weight by 430 Kg, current flight ZFW 24924, fuel 1600, TOW 26524, MTOW 32886, OVER BY 430 KG! It is seriously limiting how many passengers I can carry hence profit margin. (The system won't let me loa...

Re: Cannot Release Packages

Just flew a shed load of packages from Glasgow to Manchester, planning to deliver them to Liverpool after landing.

Unfortunately FSA thinks that they are loaded on Joe Cusick's aeroplane so I can't deliver them :shock:

Re: Client 3.4 ideas

Figures in the (fairly extensive) flight manual with the aircraft model show similar figures so I guess they are about right.

Average fuel flow seems to be in the region of 1,000 Kg per hour so my impression is that the reserve of 2,000 Kg (two hours of cruise time!) is probably a bit excessive.

Re: Client 3.4 ideas

I do all that, but in some aircraft, with the client loading you to max ZFW, the calculations leave little margin for error. Example, Vickers Viscount (VC8) MacZFW 24494 Kg Max Landing Wt 26535Kg so there is a margin of 2,041 Kg. HOWEVER, the flight manual states that one should carry an extra 2,000...

Re: Client 3.4 ideas

I think this might be better as a website option after booking the flight to limit payload and reduce the generic cargo and passengers there. We would need the entire loading schedule on the website in order to determine ZFW, Payload, TOW and try to predict Landing Wt. Landing weight is the tricky ...

Take off weight problem

I am flying the VC8 (Rick Piper model).

The FSA client tells me that I am overweight for take off despite the figures displayed for MTOW being well in excess of actual TOW.

Any idea why?

Re: Cargo System/Packages

I still can't release these packages.

I am on the airline - packages page, I have selected All VA Packages.

The tick boxes to release are there and I select them, then I click Submit.

NOTHING HAPPENS! They are all still there several more days later!
