Taxi Problem

I was starting to taxi to the runway last night as was going pretty slow ( < 10kn) when the aircraft I was using suddenly started getting those unexplained bounces that FS aircraft sometimes get, the wheels must have left the ground on one of the bounces and since I had only the taxi lights on not t...

I don't know if we need it broken out that much, but total hours on the airframe would be nice to show.

Another situation that just occurred to me. Its would not uncommon for someone to sign in on there home computer and book a flight, then later when sign in on there work computer and do administrative stuff, both systems will have different IP addresses.

Yes it is very common that dial up users will have a different IP address every time. Even users with permanent connections (like my cable modem) more often than not, do not have a static IP address and it can be re-assigned at any time.

Mission Statement

Just a small idea. Add a database field for the airline where a mission statement can be entered. That way the CEO can explain what the airline is trying to accomplish or the way its going to operate. That way potential pilots looking for an airline to join would have more to go on than just the air...

I ACCIDENTALLY LEASED AN AIRPLANE!

Help, I accidentally leased an airplane! I was trying to click on the info button and hit the $ button instead!
How do I undo this?

The plane:

Most Hours Award

I was looking at the monthly awards page and the numbers for those who had most hours ("Most Active") does not look correct. I know I did not have as many as the person in the #1 slot but I know I had more than the others. Given how many miles I have I am probably not in the top 5 so I am not expect...

Thanks for the info, thats sort of what I expected. Given how many airports there are in the database, I am not sure how else you would do it that would not be both overly complicated and require a ton of work.

"Beware of posting in haste and contradiction, for there in lies flames" --Daniel Freedson, Mosaic User Ok, one by one: I never said a bigger engine was more fuel efficient, I just said twin jets are more efficient than quads.

Hey Joe, I think on the second point you misunderstood my argument, i was just pointing out that an old clunker will not make the same amount of cash that a new plane makes. Maybe I was misunderstood in my argument that clunkers will make more money than a new jet. Here is a comparison based on som...

Fuel Price Formula

I was curious how FlyNet determined what the price of fuel is at each airport? Is there some basis on actual market prices? Does it take into account how much fuel is available or purchased at each airport? Do the prices ever change? I ask this because I noticed that of the three major airports in t...

Hi Martin, you brought up two issues, realism and playability. And you still havnt addressed the fact that your formula makes it even cheaper for the big new jets. Trust me, I was around for the multiplier wars, and the decision was to base the system around having a small basis in reality, slow exp...

I'm just saying, your idea, with good intention, unfortunately only makes it easier to make money, and pushes people even further from worthy classic aircraft. Look at the simple economics, the market value* of an aircraft is directly related to the profit it can generate, ((Seats * ticket price) -...

The point of what I am suggesting is that the maintenance cost of an aircraft should not be linked to its market value. For aircraft of about the same size the relationship would often be inverse of each other. Think of your own car, as its market value goes down due to depreciation, your maintenanc...
