Re: How to make A2A Spitfire be treated as a Spitfire MkXIV

Thanks Joe. Quite right, the early Spitfires were over a thousand LBs lighter than the later (and especially XIV) aircraft. The weights info for the A2A model (all 3 simulated variants - MkIa, MkIIa, MkIIb) is as follows: [weight_and_balance] max_gross_weight = 6178.000 empty_weight = 4000.000 refer...

How to make A2A Spitfire be treated as a Spitfire MkXIV

Hi I have A2A's excellent Spitfire package and wish to use it to fly my Spitfire Mk XIV that I have in my FSA private hangar, but unfortunately I always get told by FSA client that it is the wrong aircraft. What can I do (to the config file of that plane) to make me able to use it with FSA for priva...

Training Flights - Penalties, etc

Hi Not a bug report, simply a request for the exact nature of Training Flights to be confirmed, particularly relating to personal flight rating, airline reputation, airline finances, aircraft fuel levels and aircraft maintenance. For instance, on some training flights we might want to deliberately "...

Re: Cannot Load Main Website

There was definitely something unusual going on; I was doing a flight from EGLC to LFMN yesterday (just before 11am GMT) and, while I managed to start the flight OK, when I got to LFMN it was not possible to submit the flight report as the server was not responding. [Looking at the debug.out file it...

Re: Antonov 225 Availability?

Hi Joe

Thanks; we may well do that, but in the meantime we have acquired a 747-800F so we'll see how we get on with that.

Antonov 225 Availability?

Hi One of our new members has expressed a desire to fly AN-225 routes; we currently don't have any of this type and there doesn't seem to be a way to buy one (and there are none avail for lease). I know there was some so-called "cheating" issue a year or two ago relating to this type; has the An-225...

Re: I can not lease our CH-53 or sell!

Thanks for the explanation Chris; I hadn't realised the "unreal" status of that airframe.

Re: I can not lease our CH-53 or sell! (ATR-72Fs too?)

Hi I am trying to sell (or lease) one or two ATR72-Freighter (not passenger) aircraft to a partner airline, but the only option I get is to scrap it. Does this fall into the same trap as the aforementioned CH53? If so, that is a bit of a shame because I know that the airline in question has only rec...

Aircraft Has Zero Value

Hi One of our MD-11 cargo aircraft (DQ-PFE) has suddenly become of "zero value". Can I ask how this might have happened and how this can be rectified, please. The aircraft has been flown normally and was last maintained in November, so I see no reason for its value to disappear like this. Thanks Sim...

FSA Web Site - Mixture of English and Arabic text?

I have noticed over the last few days that when I go to the FSA website there is a mixture of English text and what - to my untrained eye - looks like some sort of Arabic font. Initially I thought it was due to my works PC having a bit of a mare but the same thing has happened on my home PC. Do I pr...

Re: Merging with an airline

Hi $600m does sound rather a lot for an aircraft probably worth $200m. FSA's "leasing screen" would probably suggest $10m per week, totalling $260m for 6 months (180 days), although even that might still not be "competitive". As a test, I attempted to lease one of our B747s (worth $200m) for $22m pe...

Aerosoft CheyenneX Causing "Fuel Cheat" Flight Abort

I have installed the Aerosoft CheyenneX (in FS2004) and attempted to fly it on an FSAirlines route, but with the engines running (and total fuel at 45%: 250kg in each of the main tanks and nothing in the tip tanks, crossfeed off) the flight got aborted in FSAirlines client because it (FSA client) th...

Re: "My aircraft is late from maintenance/transfer"

Hi

I have the same problem. A Boeing 737-800 (G-UBKK) was returned from a lease and is stuck in transfer. It was due to become available on May 26th but is still showing as "grounded".
