I have completed the 2 Dove TRs. It said on both flights I had exceeded my maximum landing weight but penalised me --0%. Is this something new I will have to watch out for?

I cannot find the Heron TR Flights on the database. I have tried various ways to no avail. Please can someone let me know what they are.

Hi Simon
I looked back through the type ratings thread to find my request
Good to remember Dave this way

Cheers
Dale

Yup :thumbsup:

EDIT: Dale.. there are currently no training routes for the Heron (either series) so I've allocated a full rating on both and trust you won't break them ;)

Ps the overweight penalty is recently introduced and as you say currently has 0% effect on rating I think however that it accelerates a/c wear and tear factor leading to increasing va maintenance costs

Thanks chaps, I've given you full ratings for the Dove and Heron then Simon. Don't break them please! ;)

Joe is helping me with the VA now. Hopefully between us, we'll have any requests covered ASAP.

Cheers
David

Sorry I forgot there were no Heron training routes, hopefully I won't forget again.

Some of the MLW in the database are incorrect, if you find a more accurate figure you can propose a modification so that it is more realistic.
