Re: List of ideas

Both myself and the person who posted above (Matt Berne) are REAL LIFE PILOTS in Australia, so we know at what speed to taxi at! We both have ATC services operating at our terminals and NO aircraft does a high speed taxi any where EVER! The max speed any one uses is 12 knots! And way slower for corn...

Re: List of ideas

Obviously you have never been in an aircraft in real life taxing, 20 knots is VERY FAST for a taxi! In real life an aircraft you would taxi a MAX of 12 knots, a general rule is "You taxi as fast as you can walk". Going 40 or 50 knots HIGHLY Illegal and a death wish for any pilot. And I know for a fa...

Re: Routes

Yea that would be even better, then you don't have to offer the 2 routes, you can just have the bonus system and if people want to go direct they don't get penalised or a bonus, however if people want to use the route and successfully use it then they get a bonus.

Re: Routes

Have it so that the pilot can choose to use the route provided, or not. The people who chose not won't get any penalties, however people who choose to use the route should have the penalties. And there are a whole heap of websites which create the routes for you. You just have to select where you st...

Re: Routes

Edward, it's a nice idea, but we come up against the old "why are you on FSAirlines?" question. Not every airline is interested in realistic flight planning, or realistic operations for that matter. Some are looking to make as much money as possible, in the shortest time. Some airlines operate with...

Routes

For each flight we should have pre-programmed in routes. I know that when you book a flight it has a spot for routes, however most pilots would not look there, and also some Airlines probably don't worry about entering them in there. A different route can affect your flight time, and fuel used on th...

Best Checklist Website

I have recently found a website where you can obtain checklists for almost all aircraft. The link is here: http://freechecklists.net/

I would recommend all realistic pilots to use it.

Helicopter Section

Can you please make a "Helicopter" Category in the front page please. Preferably next to the Airplane one. This is because people want to be able to access these aircraft and helicopters quickly having them mixed will make the category over crowded. Where as if we make a new one for helicopters it w...

flight classified as cheated when client froze

However apart 1/4 of the way into the flight the c...
