Re: ERJ145ER CARGO CAPACITY ERROR

Yeah, I see the Change button, but nothing happens if the plane is not over weight. The way it works (to the best of my understanding) is to fuel the airplane with required fuel. Then if the GTOW exceeds limits, the pilot can reduce either passengers or freight. But if the plane is within takeoff li...

ERJ145ER CARGO CAPACITY ERROR

FYI - The ERJ145ER is showing a cargo capacity of 12923 lbs. Just to compare, the ERJ145LR has a listed cargo capacity of 2576. I submitted a support ticket with the suggestion it be changed to 1925 which might be correcting too far the other way (too light). All the real world specs I've found say ...

Re: Pax Doesn't Match Tickets Sold

Appears to be an issue when using PMDG737NG with FSCopilot and FSInn. Not sure what the exact issue/solution was, but the pilot in question has cleared up the pax problem on most recent flights although the combination of programs is giving false high altitude temps (+50 at FL400) that is causing ex...

Pax Doesn't Match Tickets Sold

Hi Everyone, I have a new pilot who is flying a 737-800 with default seating (156). But his latest flight shows 315 pax carried! :shock: Not possible in a 737-800. Yet the financials are OK, only 156 tickets sold. I'm thinking this is a PMDG 737NG load manager configuration issue, anybody run across...

FSA Airport Database with sort feature

It would be really helpful if the airport database could be sorted by clicking on the top header of either the airport name, airport city or airport ICAO code. Airports named after a person are a pain to find in the current database if the person looking does not know the actual airport name. The on...

Re: New ICAO Code Rule?

That would explain why a pilot on Flight Simulator Network Virtual Airlines was stuck at ANYN. It was ANAU in FSA but now the airport database changed to ANYN and he was left hung out to dry in never-never land. Don't know if he got the problem fixed or not, I'm now the owner/operator of my own FSAi...

Re: 737-400 Combi incorrect pax

Ahhhhhh......grasshopper see the light .... :idea: ... maybe....I'm still not used to the seat config thinking I have to max out the seating..... So if I've finally "got it", then the cargo shipped should approach the 11kg max with only 72 pax on board.....provided there is enough cargo at the depar...

737-400 Combi incorrect pax

Hi Guys, I just ordered a 737-400 combi off the "out of production" list and discovered the passenger capacity is way off. The 737-400 combi holds 4 737 freight containers (up to 6000 lbs each) in the front and 72 passengers in the back. FSA stats for type #597 737-400 Combi indicates 189 pax. Here'...

Duplicate flight upload at 630 GMT

Hi Guys, I ended my flight around 11:30pm local time (630 GMT) and discovered it had uploaded twice. It also showed the flight as still booked. I clicked on the flight overview of the duplicate and requested it be reviewed by an administrator. :? No sooner had I done that when suddenly the duplicate...

Re: Fuel Calc Beta

Thanks for the lbs conversion Konny! It looks to be spot on for the 737 based on my previous flight data. I usually don't cut corners and carry an hour extra for all flights. Once it's in the tanks, you don't won't be penalized for keeping that nice fat reserve. 6000 lbs for a 737 is my normal targe...

Re: Fuel Calc Beta

Any chance of getting it to convert to lbs for those of us in the States who have our system set for lbs? Lost my "whirly slide rule" kg to lbs converter in the cockpit somewhere....I think it's down between the quadrant and the chart bin .... :roll: Great idea though, it really gives the new guys a...

Re: Total hours Flown

Hi Guys,
Is it possible the duplicate names are due to the pilot changing email address? I had the same problem and found out one of the pilots actually had two accounts each under a different email address.

Re: Cannot Load Main Website

Matty: Wouldn't do much good to put it on the website page when the website is down.... :wink: Auto email notification (if possible) would be the solution - nothing fancy, just something like: "FSAirlines.net is currently down. Our apologies. Please stand by for notification when system is back up"....

Re: Cannot Load Main Website

I kinda figured it was server issued so I told my pilots they had the day off and to go enjoy it. An Administrator of a website such is this reminds me of the plumber .... They rarely get a thank you and the only time they get called is when the sink backs up!! So for all of those who don't or won't...
