But the routes into or out of are all broken because the icao code no longer matches. Hopefully there were no pilots or aircraft at the airport when the code was changed. Even if the official ICAO code was changed, whats more important is what is the airport called in FS9/FSX. If FS9 lists the airpo...

Chris, there are lots of airports in the system that no longer exist, if we are trying to recreate a historic route having the original airport in the system is important. At the minimum if your going to remove an airport that airlines are using you should at least announce it before hand. As it is ...

The current method, Flynet Assumes 100kg per passenger. The maximum allowed cargo is reduced by 25kg per passenger to cover there baggage. Dry weight of aircraft + weight of passengers + weight of fuel + weight of cargo must be below maximum take off weight of aircraft, and cargo is the first thing ...

This is actually quite hard to do, the client can not set the payload amount the way it sets the fuel amounts (FSIUCP limitation). FlyNET does not know exactly how much cargo you are going to carry until you enter the amount of fuel you are going to buy, and then its too late to go into the MSFS set...

Cargo is a bit of a mystery to me, the more cargo you carry and the farther you carry it the price/kg/mile goes down but Konny did not want to reveal the actual formula.

Hi Leif,

The other option for the cheater is to change the fuel flow scalar in the aircraft.cfg. Changing it from 1.0 to 0.01 does help increase the range.

They must be on if you are below 1000 feet above ground . Turn then off after climbing 1000 feet, turn them on before descending below 1000 feet. If you are at 8000 feet about to go over a 7500 foot mountain, turn them on. If you are at 12000 feet about to go over a 11500 foot mountain, climb to 130...

To agree with the points raised above. I write websites for a living using php and I can verify that it takes no additional bandwith to set a cookie to identify the logged in person. Also there is no such thing as a 'industry standard' 10 minutes. The two most common ways are either 1) 24 hours or 2...

Older aircraft

I really think we need to rethink the cost basis where we use older aircraft. While its true that in the real world older aircraft have much lower sale prices, this is because of many factors including higher maintenance costs, worn out airframes, noisy engines, outdated avionics, lack of current sa...

That would really kill those of us who are trying to run 'classic' airlines made up of older aircraft. I agree that there are lots of limitations using older aircraft that make uneconomic or unusable for regular passenger service that flynet does not reproduce and therefore there prices should be hi...

An excelent idea. But if a pilot leaves an airline and returns later they should get there old ID back.

I just looked at your aircraft in the database, looks like its 100% and good to go. The maintain aircraft button is always displayed even if your aircraft is 100%, your just not going to get any benefit from changing the oil again if its just been serviced.

We are supposed to provide valid email addresses, sending a code to that address when you register or change your email address would be a good idea. New accounts that have not verified can't join or start airlines and are removed after a resonable period of time.
