Route distance and airplane capability
« on: February 22, 2010, 08:17:38 AM »
I have an airplane with range 420 NM. I have a plan to use this airplane to take a route from Fresno to Seattle, which distance is more than 700 NM. So I decide to make a stop fueling at Chico (why chico? because I haven't done the  math which I will explain right now).
The distance Fresno-Chico is 207 NM and Chico-Seatlle is 460 NM, which is 40 NM further than the aircraft capability. Is this going to work? I already make the route and assigned to the airplane schedule. I dont know if its gonna work because the airplane will be delivered in 2 weeks.
Why when I assigned this route to the airplane, the system didn't tell me that my airplane can not cover the distance from Chico to Seattle ?
HELP ME PLEASE
thanks

It will work but it will be limited in the amount of passengers/cargo/bags it can carry (the lighter the aircraft the farther it can fly.)
