Re: Bug with CYYT airport & FSAirliners

OH WAIT - If you are on a "technical fuel stop" / divert ... the system will build you a flight out automatically. A transfer might actually "break the chain" of flights and cost you millions in lost revenue.

Re: Bug with CYYT airport & FSAirliners

It would be fantastic if there was a way to make heliports only have a 1/4 mile range instead of the airport 5 mile range. That would solve a lot of issues. If you miss a heliport by 1/4 mile, you shouldn't be flying helicopters! :lol:

Re: Bug with CYYT airport & FSAirliners

We have had the same problem diverting into KPHX, Phoenix AZ. It dumped our pilot into a heliport across the freeway when she landed on the runway at KPHX. So our COO Sam Scott posted an internal NOTAM for diverts to be used only in emergency situations. If a pilot needs a fuel stop, we will make th...

Re: FSA client says sim isn't started

Dont use 2.3.3 with MSFS, use the beta client, 2.4-rc5.
I am not using the new MSFS, I am referring to changes in the Beta Client that seemed to break it for FSX-SE. I had to revert back to 2.3.3.

Full computer reboot after reinstalling 2.3.3 worked for me with FSX Steam Edition

Re: Client 2.4 Beta

OK I just landed KABQ and the flight report says I got paid for 3058 cargo + 12787 packages = 15845 total. The pre-flight briefing only allowed me to load 12,787 worth of packages as the max cargo with this pax load was 13,034. So I got paid for 2761 lbs of passenger bags as generic cargo. Flight LA...

Re: Client 2.4 Beta

What I am saying is the passenger bags are showing up as general cargo in the Cargo line. added: My max cargo generic and packages together was 13,034. But the Client is showing the cargo at 15,844 which can only be the passenger bags added in. I did the math and it's 55.174 lbs per passenger. added...

Re: Client 2.4 Beta

FYI - It does it with 2.3.3 too! Max cargo capacity listed as cargo weight in the Client. So when we hit change we are just tossing out baggage and not packages? There's 2800 lbs of "extra cargo" (baggage) that is not paying cargo. If you are going to keep this complex system, you need to make that ...

Re: Client 2.4 Beta

I cancelled my flight at my expense and rebooked it and now the numbers are all different. Something is really funky with the new system. The package cargo is the same but now the pre flight briefing is showing the crew weight and correct generic cargo where before it was showing the generic cargo a...

Re: Client 2.4 Beta

Loading up a flight in a 737-300 tonight. The pre-flight document states I have 13,034 packages / cargo but the Client says I have the max cargo capacity of 15,845. I did the math and the difference works out to 55.1174 lbs per passenger. So the passenger bags are showing in the Client as cargo? Tha...

Re: Beta 2.4 Client Bugs/Issues

UPDATE: now I can't even load fuel in the FSX fuel planner, it seems the client has it locked out somehow or there is some way to fuel iFly737NG's that I don't know about. I've always used the client. Going back to 2.3.3. Enough of this.

Beta 2.4 Client Bugs/Issues

First issue off the bat, the new beta client no longer loads the fuel into iFly737NG payware, you have to change it to "read only" and then load your own fuel in the sim. Very much a PITA, I'm thinking of going back to the stable client as just about all I fly are the iFly737NG airplanes.

Re: Client 2.3.3 frequently stops flight simulator

I think the auto save feature is more trouble than it's worth. How are we supposed to put the aircraft back in the sky at the precise place, with the exact amout of fuel that was in it was when the sim crashes anyway? It does not "auto save" the sim flight, only the data on FSAirlines.
