Random aircraft events

Though they should by no means be common I think there should be aircraft/engine related events.
In real life the DC10/787 have been grounded for a while, currently RR powered 787s are having problems with their engines (as do the PW powered A320neos).
A380 had wing cracking issues etc.

I think these events should also be implemented in the game. At random of course.
In order of rarity/severity I think something like this:
- An engine family is grounded (e.g. all aircraft with RR trent engines)
- Full fleet type is grounded (e.g. the entire B787 Family)
- Specific fleet type is grounded (e.g. the 787-8)
- Specific variation is grounded (e.g. the 787-8 with RR engines)
- An engine family requires an overhaul
- Full fleet type requires an overhaul in X amount of time (this would mainly just increase the expense of the A/B/C/D check and add a couple of hours/days to the checks, resulting in delays/cancelled flights)
- Specific fleet type requires an overhaul
- Specific variation requires an overhaul

Cheers,

NC

Sure.

Let’s model in crashes too to go along with that severe weather the lovely channel 5 reporter keeps advising us about!  :laugh:

Come one, don't make him say what he didn't say, no need to be sarcastic ;)
That's way lighter, and conditions of application are not even mentioned here. Not every event would have to be implemented, and they could be effective without being traumatic. Would a 2-days grounding kill your airline? Probably not.

Conditions have to be discussed along the possibility of such events, otherwise we don't even know what were talking about and the discussion will be pointless.

As far as I am aware accidents and incidents are on the list to be added already (and you can already see a part of this implemented with the insurance menu)

I think random aircraft events would add another challenge.
Grounding could be anything from one or two days to one or two months (though the latter should only happen say once every 30-40 game years)
Perhaps insurance could also (partially) cover this.

How about a pilot error.  What if you inadvertently hire a pilot Sum Ting Wong, as it happened to Asiana

How about First officer Wi Tu Low?

What a even disaster it would be if both happened to be paired on the same flights.
