I see the fleet pages have the option to change a registration.
Has anyone ever done that before? Are there any potentially nasty knock on effects?

Just that CBFS's BBMG is showing up as a 500, not a 400.
Any objection to me changing it to a reg that matches a 500?

And am I right in thinking that I must put them in for maintenance when they reach 95.5%?

Hi Dave,

From what I have seen changing the reg is fairly safe thing to do with no real side effects. The only limitation is that the new reg has to be unique within flynet.

Also from my conversation with John earlier today, when an aircraft is at its base and is at 96.something its ready to go into the maintenance hanger.
Joe Cusick,

John had said to us earlier if an a/c is at 96.x it should go in for maintenance. :wink:

Here you go guy's.. this quoted from John's original post..

A-Check: 100-95% ; 1 day (costs 3% of aircraft valuation)
B-Check: 95-75% ; 3 days (costs 20% of aircraft valuation
C-Check: 75-40% ; 7 days (costs not known, but we don't want to be here)
D-Check: 40-0% ; 14 days (costs not known, but we don't want to be here)


To avoid long downtime and also minimise costs, all our aircraft maintenance will be performed before the aircraft status drops to below 95% so Do not use an aircraft if it's status is below 96%. A take-off at 96% should keep us above 95% as long as you make a reasonable landing at destination....

There you go. The actual numbers are open to discussion but best practise will be to not takeoff in an aircraft in the low 96.x area unless you can be sure of it landing with a 96.x percentage :wink:

Hi Dave,

My bad on 'MG. Go ahead and change it to something more suitable. If you have any spare known reg's that we have repaints for that would be preferable. Let me know what you change it to so I can update my records.

A/C maint guideline is that we must not let an A/C go below 95% as it's a big hit financially. To ensure this doesn't happen then the guideline is don't take an aircraft if maint is below 96% . At 96% or above it should be sufficient for a rotation A to B to A. With the VC10's and Comet's on longhaul you'd probably want to not leave EGLL with less than 100%.

Thanks for the advice everyone.
I've reregistered G-BBMG to be G-BDAT, all seems ok.
