Lights penalty

Post by Quantum » Thu Sep 18, 2008 1:53 pm

Hi,

Yes, I know, this has been debated to death already but we never get nearer a solution. Would it be easier to just have a penalty for lights not on when wheels leave runway or when wheels touch runway i.e. they must at least be on for take-offs and landings. That would at least make all operating differences allowable and solve the high altitude airport problems as well. It also fixes the problems on payware aircraft that have landing lights mapped to nosewheel and switch off when gear retracts.

Please can we give some serious consideration to this.

Regards

That is a good idea.
It would also eliminate a penalty (that I have incurred) for landing lights off while taxiing.
Currently if a pilot turns off the landing lights after vacating the active or leaves them off while taxiing to the h/p, as required, and the a/c hops due to a scenery issue, the client very kindly dings the user. :(

well, I don't think anything has changed there. But if someone knows how the Maddoglights work, maybe can develop a little workaround, if there isn't already one.
