Aircraft age?
« on: July 13, 2018, 01:12:36 pm »
Is there any way to see the age of aircraft in your fleet? I've been expanding but still have the first a/c I purchased and have noticed my reliability has been suffering. Guessing it may have to do with the old planes? Is there any way to see this so I can sell them and purchase newer ones?

After clicking the airplane tab, click on the model u own, on the right u should see "Inventory" with the aircraft u own for that model, click on the airplane icon in inventory, it show show details of that aircraft  :)

If it's too old u can simply click "replace" button in the details and it should replace ur old aircraft with a new one w/o having to reassign

Hope this helps!

Extremely helpful thank you! Is there any way to increase your maintenance budget or refurbish aircraft to increase there reliability or condition?

There used to be a maintenance funding option but i removed it cause it doesn't make the game more fun...it just kinda adds complexity w/o anyone using it :P

The only option right now is replacing an aircraft. It's relatively cheaper if u replace it at young age (since the resell value is higher). Though as a rule of thumb airplanes usually run OK with condition 40%+, when it drops below 40% you will see a little exclamation point next to it - as it will break down more often below 40%. If it's below 20% it will break down even more often up to the point that the route might not be profitable and your airport loyalty will be hurt due to frequent delays and cancellations
