Re: New Parking Fee's - Billing Nightmare?

I think I fixed most of the issues., I even discovered one that was preventing all my big 747's parked at JFK from getting charged. I put the new code on beta.fsairlines.net and reset the database back to a backup from 4/30 and ran the parking charge program. Log into beta.fsairlines.net and see wh...

You have more patience than I do Cat! I'm sure Joe appreciates the help.

I'd just rather fly 8)

New Parking Fee's - Billing Nightmare?

I was just thinking about the new parking fee system and how it could possibly be streamlined. It appears we have seen a first test run and the amounts are so minor, couldn't we just make it an "expense" in the PIREP along with fuel and crew catering? The system should know when the aircraft arrived...

Re: Client 2.2.1 Released!

FSUIPC NOTE WITH NEW CLIENT : If you are running an ancient system (like mine and others) you must update FSUIPC to work with the new stable client …. RESTART YOUR COMPUTER after you install the latest version of FSUIPC or you will pound your head against the wall trying to figure out where it went...

Re: reconnect client?

Ahhhh I never knew that about FSUIPC and I've had a registered copy for years! Always learning something in flying, be it real world or simulators. I've never started from a "saved flight" in FSX as way back when, on another planet far far away many years ago, Flight 1 tech support promised all thin...

Re: some thought about more realistic

Yeah that would probably be the safest way too, could back out of any new item that has issues without affecting others. We are being proactive and setting our own 'standards' for Jan 1. All aircraft to have current annual inspections, aircraft shall not be posted for sale with an outdated annual in...

Re: some thought about more realistic

Sounds like a really good option for guys who want to keep all their planes but haven't got the time to fly them to keep them current. If the maintenance status hit for planes not flown does not exceed 5% annually, it really becomes a non issue as the aircraft will need an annual A service anyway. I...

Re: Change Cargo

There always has been a problem with the current system loading to max zero fuel weight with the pilot having no way to remove cargo other than to get down to MTOW. This has caused many "exceeded max landing weight" advisories as the max landing weight on some aircraft in FSA are set so you would ha...

Re: some thought about more realistic

Honestly with the path we are down, I don't see how it's going to be anything but complicated. There needs to be a way to keep it simple for it to work at all in my opinion. While it's true the "simple method" won't emulate full real world operations, I don't think there are any FSA owners out there...

Re: some thought about more realistic

One more thought tonight and I will cease and desist: Instead of just "delcaring" an airport as a hub, require owners to actually build a maintenance center there and when they do, they will get "preferred parking rates". This will allow larger operators to have multiple places to get breaks on park...

Re: some thought about more realistic

Well the fleet idea does not let us see how much parked hangar queens are costing us but it's a pretty valid compromise. If there is a way to get FSA data to talk to Google sheets via some magic formula, that would be ideal, we could then have our finance guy Mich pull specific data to specific area...

Re: some thought about more realistic

For the record, I am not against the parking fee idea with regard to making things more realistic. I just think the way we track stats at Fly Vegas it will be "difficult at best" for us to incorporate the billing of said fee's to individual aircraft, not to mention the man hours required to post to ...
