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.

Good question, I don't really know what there effect would be on competition. For that matter there are airlines that setup hundreds of routes that they never fly. I would think that a reasonable approach would be that a competing route has no effect unless it has been flown in the last 30 days.

The virtual airlines page in the database only shows airlines that have aircraft in there fleet.

Go to the booked flight page and select upload pirep (or something like that), it will ask for the code.

I am inclined to agree with John, can we roll back to 6.0 until we can work out the bugs with 6.2?

Re: test

2. when you change the kgs/lbs radio button it incorrectly converts the value. It converted 48 kg to 105 lbs, this is a conversion of 2.1875 whereas the correct conversion should have used 1 kilogram = 2.20462262 pounds. As far as the conversion is conserned, since the client only handles fuel in w...

You enter the amount you need.

Here how it works, after the previous flight there was 2000lbs on the aircraft, you need 10000lbs for your flight.

The client indicates 2000lbs,
you change it 10000lbs,
You are charged for 8000lbs.

Until Konny decides otherwise, the rule is the rule. If that is the case we should probably drop the Antonov AN-225 from the database, I don't think anyone is operating it. Dave, apparently the B-52 was in the system before the rule was adopted and was grandfathered. I think only one is in service ...

Ideally you should be able to distinguish between airports that have either jet fuel, av gas, both or none and which type of fuel the aircraft needs. The flight sim airline database has this information in it and type of fuel needed by the aircraft is in its aircraft.cfg file. Although I don't know ...

More information in support of the beluga. From the airbus website A wide range of commercial charter missions have been performed by Airbus Transport International, from airlifting a 17.6-metre-long x 6.5-metre-diameter chemical tank weighing 39 metric tonnes to transporting a large French masterpi...

While I am in total agreement that military aircraft and aircraft that have not entered civilian fleet have no place in flynet but I think the A300-600ST "Beluga" does have a place. It does have a civilian type certificate and has entered service with airbus for civilian cargo missions. I am sure if...

I said it does not work at all. My experience with it. I have created a flynet directory next to my fs9 folder where I put the client, I have a shortcut on my desktop that links to the flynet.exe that I use to start the client. When I started the client it told me that a new version was available an...
