I am with John and Lief on this one. I don't think most FlyNET pilots are very concerned about there pay. The only thing flynet really needs is a way for the CEO to transfer funds a pilot to reimburse them if they had to cancel a flight or buy ticket. You could use that for bonuses but there would h...

I understand your idea but would rather pay on a per flight basis to encourage productivity. If you wanted to do weekly salary I would say you need to do some number of flight hours a week to stay current (say 20), if you work less than that you get less. Real world pilots would get a salary but wou...

If you are trying to figure out if a flight is profitable, pilot salary is certianly a major factor. With you proposal, a flight would be much more profitable if the pilot flys 28 flights a week rather than just two flights a week. This might be realistic if it were the airline that made that descis...

From what you described, FS9 did not say crash but the flynet client did. Is that correct?

Problem solved, it was related to the panel that was being used.

1kg fuel used

One of our pilots was using the new vistaliners L1011 on a route between KSFO and KLAX and the client said he used only one KG of fuel. Not sure how that happened, but there is the contents of the log.out file to help diagnose this situation. He just had to reformat his drive and reinstalled FS2004....

An excellent plan Konny, it will also make it clearer what to do when flying over high mountains in unpressurised aircraft.

If when the client asked for the fuel amount, if it also asked for max pax and cargo would that fit the requirements?

My observations is that refueling is a pilots only function. I have negative revenue all the time when I tank up at low price airports but assume that the loss will be made up on future flights, as long as you don't change your multiplier in between flights. Are you asking for a limit on how much fu...

For formats I would recommend the csv format (comma separated values), its fairly simple and supported by Excel. I would second Ionathan's idea of being able to upload a file with the flight plan. If you have a large number of flights to enter or update that would make it much easier. I am not sure ...

Hi Joao, You can create a training type flight rather than a scheduled type flight and then it wont effect your airlines reputation. As for your lights its only the landing lights that count. The thresholds are that they must be on when less than 1000ft above the ground and off 10,000 feet above sea...

Not to pile on, but I could not imagine a real world airline manager allowing a pilot involved in a crash to fly again until after the investigation.

As far as the existing penalties for taxi speed and lights I don't think its different. With the old version while there was a 60 second grace period for taxi speed, there was no grace period for lights or air speed > 260 when alt < 10,000ft. I for one have had the old client instantly ding me when ...
