Newbie Question Concerning Extra Maintenance
« on: August 14, 2012, 12:22:50 AM »
Hello all,

I've been reviewing my fleet, and I see that in addition to a and b checks, there is an extra maintenance to bring it up to 100% condition (or whatever value.)  Roughly at what point should this option be used?  Does a B-Check do the same thing?  When you do perform addditional maintenance, will the plane not go into a b check that month as it is in extra maintenance?

Thanks in advance for helping out a new player.

Cheers,
J

To avoid cancellations due to technical problems I would suggest to keep the performance well above 80.
A- and B-checks bring up your performance value to a certain degree, I must confess I donīt know exactly how much, it seems to keep the balance. Extra maintenance is something you do additionally to scheduled checks, they will take place as scheduled.

A check 5%
B check 10%

these can however not be done too close after each other. Meaning: once an A check was made, you cannot do the next one for a week (ingame), or 1 month with a B-check.

Extra maintenance can however contain these checks (or even C/D checks, up to how "damaged" your a/c is). I suggest, that if your plane is ~50% of condition you should just make a C-check, and see if that raises it to 85-95% (which it should), before doing the "extra maintenance", since that usually costs more.

cheers,

Hi,

My question related to the Maintenance, so I guess I can post it here

Does a higher class check also cover the lower class check?
Like for example, a B check is scheduled on Aug 30th, but then a C check happens to be on Aug 25th to Sep 5th. So, is the mentioned B check covered by the C check and then it is delayed until Sep 30th?

Same thing for C check and D check happen at the same time, is the C check ignored to the next year? What happen if they are, say 1 month apart, then both of them need to be done on the same year? If so, we'd better manually schedule the D check to cover the C check, right?

Thanks

When a plane comes out of a particular check, it is also considered to have just had all lower checks.
