Unable to do long haul flights

Recommended Posts

Normally when i do long haul flights I take off and do some errands and and come back, however lately when i have long haul flights (HKG to YYZ) i come back find the aircraft crashed, or on the ground with the engine/s shutdown, but I still have fuel, this mostly occurs near the polar regions up north near alaska and that area.

 

Is this a failure i need to fix or is it a real life feature of some sorts.

Not a feature..., if the simulator (FSX or P3D?) is crashing you'd expect to find just a desktop or maybe a I gotta shut down message.  Not sure how the aircraft is ending up on the ground.

if you have crash detection enabled and/or 'aircraft stress damages aircraft' it may be that you are hitting bad turbulence or something like a huge wind shift..with default fsx weather dangerous shifts that can break a plane could happen sometimes.. so the plane 'crashes', and then reloads you back on the ground.

just speculating, not really sure..

Hi,

 

Do you have the service-based failure enabled?

Without any symptom, difficult to give the cause of the shut down and crash. Freezing fuel (if simulated), icing, failure...?

 

The best thing would be to record the flight if you can and see what happens. Or, if you have time, stay close to your computer during the flight to be able to monitor what goes wrong.
