Hello,

All 4 completed for full rating. It keeps saying over max landing weight- this isn't the case though.

Paul
Full rating granted. I looked at one of your flights, you bought 1139kg of fuel on a flight that used only 271. so the 868 kg you had in the tanks were more than enough to make you overweight. The difference between MZFW and MLW is only 387kg.

Can you set me up fro the Rs on the Viscount please. I am currently at Heathrow where the Viscounts are at present. I will take one up to Dyce and leave it there when I have re-qualified.

Ah, ok.
It also billed me for fuel on each flight, although as there was plenty in, I only added fuel on the first flight. Is it me or is it the Client?

I think client reads whats in the aircraft when you start it, the sim by default starts the AC with 100% fuel, The Briefing document gives an estimated fuel usage you can use as a starting point for how much fuel you should load into the aircraft.
