Hi Lars,

good to hear about another existing and living VA for FG pilots. I am flying with St. Paul airlines, which has mainly FSX etc. pilots, but is suitable for FG as well by now.

Now my question: How did your airline IT team deal with different mass-and-balance approaches by different aircraft?

I refer to an intensive development and testing done by the SPA webmaster to apply an economy mode to FG aircraft, he has found a way and refers to this issue in his post: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=34555&p=334436#p334436
As you apparently have payload/economy results for your flights, as well, how did you handle it for different planes?

At this time we use the same standards for every plane. This standard uses full load and differs depending on the flown distance. But we have a different class for special aircraft such as the Concorde.

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks, Lars, i.e. you assume full payload and "pay" per distance, did I get that right?

Hello, I attempted to join your VA but your site is using an outdated version of reCaptcha which seems to be preventing me from completing the application process.

I filled everything out and attempted to submit the form without any reCaptcha input but it seemed to have no effect as the page just reloaded with no message to indicate success or failure and I have not received any confirmation email of any type. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Same here... CAPTCHA-test is not working as it is outdated. Registration not possible.

Cool, that's great!
No rush here anyway.

Well, this VA sounds amazing! I'd love to join it, but I'll keep flying "alone" just for a little while so I get more experience. A couple of questions, if that's ok!

Let's imagine I choose "Dublin" has my HUB. Do all my planes need to take off from that airport? Or I can actually choose any route I want? And, once the route has been chosen, do you give the pilots information (autopilot, fuel, take-off time, etc...)? I'm not really an expert so I might be asking for something that's quite silly... I hope the questions are ok!

Cheers!

We use certain hubs but everyone is free to fly from wherever they want to wherever they want, no matter the hub. The route which you choose should be filled in in the tracker if the pilot is using it (which isn't mandatory). When using the route manager, the route can be easily filled in the tracker by using the 'route' button. We don't give information about the flight, because routes can differ depending on weather just like fuel. Take-off time is determined by the pilot.
