increase Available flight time
« on: March 29, 2020, 02:48:51 am »
Can I increase available flight time per airplane? I have to got free slots but cannot use the plane to its full potential. It only flies about 6 hours a day and stays unused for the rest of the time. Even if I add the turnaround time, there is still many hours left which could be used.

If u click on the clock icon (next to the assigned airplanes in the route edit tab), what number does it show?

There's currently no way to increase the available flight time - it's being set to certain ratio of a week for game balance

It shows 97% and it does a max of 15 flights a week, each flight is 1h26min, Embraer 170, route BRQ-FRA, does not serve any other route. It should be allowed to do 21 flights.

1 flight (my estimates):
  • 1.5h outbound flight
    1h turnaround
    1.5h inbound flight
    1.5 turnaround at home base
total: 5.5h per return flight
2 flights a day: 11h
If the first flight is 7 am, the AC completes its flights by 6pm and then stays idle.
In the real world, it would be able to do one more round trip per day with a return just before midnight.
