Inappropriate postings...

Busy Jet has been targetted by the Flynet username of Ninja who has put an innapropriate thread in our VA Forum. We can only delete the thread, but would like to make it quite plain that we had nothing whatsoever to do with it, do not appreciate this abuse of Forums in general (especially ours), and...

Pointless...

I'm not getting involved in this pointless, senseless argument... this is SIMULATION, and will never be completely accurate... each airframe will have different characteristics to the nth degree, as will each engine. I have no doubt that as Microsoft Flight simulator has evolved, that the stock airc...

Gentlemen If I may direct your attention to the following link http://www.airliners.net/info/stats.main?id=100 The B747-400ER at MTOW 910,000lbs has a range of 7670NM (Still Air) at 490Knts - this would give a maximum endurance of 15.6 hours - so it matters little what PMDG or anyother "modelmaker"...

Sorry to interrupt this discusion guys, but apart from calling someone a cheat, is this really worth the agro? I guess you could call me a cheat too... I'm using FS2000, have no add-ons, no ATC, no extra traffic, and just bimbling around the skies in the stock aircraft in FS2000 (not pro), a PSS 777...

Yep...
I had the same problem because I didn't shut down the client betwen flights. An indication that you will have the problem will be that you'll se your previous flight path on the map page, as well as you current flight.

I had the same, and can only think that it was because I had not recycled the client between flights. A pointer to that would be that the map view showed the outward flight's track as well as the current flight track...

aaargghhhh!

It just got worse... (flight tracker still on incidentally) Having rebooked the flight, refuelsed, and commenced the flight, at some time the client decided that the flight had expired, cancelled the flight in mid flight, and charged me again! The log start normally enough, but at the end there are ...

Same issue...

I've had this issue twice now, with windows (98SE and FS2000 ) reporting that flynet has attempted an illegal instruction and shut the client down mid flight, with the same symptoms as the initial report... having said that, it has only occurred twice in the time I've been using the system, and I'm ...

As an basic thought, if you was to have a passenger modifier (passengers don't know about aircraft seviceabillity generally) but you could do something with the reputation and aircraft status if you wished with a simple calculation of airline reputation x aircraft status as a percentage, and use thi...

I'm fairly new to this too, and flying using FS2000! Four stupid questions for you (not tryng to insult your intelligence). 1. Do you have a licence to fly the type you have booked your flight with? 2. On opening the client, when you click on show booked flight, does it show what you think is your f...

I appreciate that, but the 777-300 series has a bigger hold thanthe 777-200 series, yet according to the database the -200's has the ability to carry more in the way of cargo which seems a little peculier to me... :?

777 aircraft information...

I've done a little investigation regarding the 777 series of aircraft on the Boeing website, and a discrepency in the flynet data for them is regarding the cargo allocated for each of the types... I have the information (from the Boeing website) regarding the cargo space available but I don't know h...

I can only relate the experience I had Cap'nFlyer... You're right in that I could fly the flight, but in my case, it put myself at the destination and left the the Rapide at start point, without ending the booked flight... and nor could I cancel it; but I am using FS2000 and a novice at both FS2000 ...

If you book the flight, you also have to have the liscence (?) to fly it from the CEO of the airline, else that flight remains your booked flight... well, that was my situation anyway... filed a flight plan for my DH89, and flew it, but the flight remained booked as I didn't have a liscence to fly t...
