Noob question re flight times

Postby AAC0735 » Mon May 07, 2018 7:46 am

Greetings fellow pilots.

As a newly minted member I'm building up to doing my first flight.
KACARS installed & connected no problem (miraculously!) so I'm checking out the flight booking/bidding system.

Do I have to do the flight at the scheduled time/day?

Do I have to fly in the right livery?

Also, the 'Search Schedules' screen doesn't work for me in Firefox but is OK in Internet Explorer. Using Firefox, if I select a Departure Airport or
Aircraft Type etc. there are no results. Is this a known thing?

Thanks in advance.

Not really. OTOH many of our schedules are based on real-world schedules, so you can add this as an extra challenge.

Again, no. Me personally I'm rather perfectionistic in flying with the correct livery and callsign, but that's me.
IMO it adds to the realism.
Btw our president Dave Reed is (amongst other things) a gifted repainter and regulary adds HAG-based liveries to the known libraries.
So do I, but on a not-so-regular base.

No, it's not. One known thing is people not waiting long enough for the loading screen to ehh... load :D .

So, don't try anything on THIS screen (be it IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, smoke signals, ...) :

But wait for THIS screen to load:

Depending on your internet speed, this CAN indeed take a while.
Screenies taken in Firefox btw. So it works.

Happy landings,
