What am i doing wrong?
« on: April 07, 2014, 02:50:31 PM »
Okay guys.. quick question. I've got a DC-8-53 with a range of 4250 miles.. I created a route from KHOU to PGUM with a stop over in PHNL. My longest leg length is 3391 NM but it says I can only carry 8 pax ???  What gives?  Thanks for any input..

Probably a runway length issue

Does the DC-8-53 have different variants?  That is, are there different engine offering with different ranges?  You will get a warning for the variant with the lowest range, so if the lowest range is 3000nm and you have the 5000nm model, it won't apply.  I'm not in gameworld so I can't do the research.  If you are flying the max distance, that means you need more fuel and more runway.

3160m runway required.

Hobby has 2 317 x 46 m.

Guam has 3 053 x 46 m.


The less runway you have available, the more weight must be reduced to be able to take off. This means either fuel (range) or/and capacity (pax) are reduced.
