Setting B check - additional option
« on: May 19, 2018, 01:22:35 AM »
We have one B check option - to start at the same day and time as A check start.

It would be nice to have the other B check option automatic as well, for B check to end at the same day and time as the end of A check.

This would also make the customized B check redundant.  There no reason to have B check start at any other time other than start with A check or end with A check.

I do it all the time with 7-day schedules. The A-check falls between the same two flights on all 7 planes but I adjust the B-check to do the least damage (never on Friday, for example).

Well, you have 2 options for B check:
1. Overlap with A check and lose only 19 hours of scheduled flying
2. Don't overlap with A check and lose 24 hours of scheduled flying

There are plenty of reasons, actually. I'm not going to deliver them(that's advanced techniques I keep for me), but more than 40% of my B checks are disjoint from the A-Check. And not only Cardinal's reason, by far.

Well, regardless of the manual B check option staying or not (I have nothing against it staying), I just thought the 2nd most useful way to schedule the B check (automatically) should be available as well, not just the most popular.
