Aircraft in storage

I've got a couple of DC-8-63's in storage that I would like to pull out and convert to -73's WITHOUT automatically performing "D" checks (since the conversion process includes a "D" check).. Is there a way to do this?

Dear competitor ( 8) )

I am not 100% sure this really works since I never had this situation. However, I just checked it with my stored DC6 which could be converted into DC6F. When you click on "Remove from storage", a new window appears. In this window, there is a little check box (see screenshot). It reads: "Perform additional heavy checks (C/D check). I would assume that if you do not click on this check box, the checks would not be performed. If I remember correctly the checks would only be done as soon as you schedule that aircraft.

EDIT: OK nevermind. I just tried it with one of the DC6. The D-check happens automatically. Sounds like we need a feature request..."Remove from storage and convert aircraft".

EDIT 2: If you like I can buy DC-63 for you and convert them on your behalf to DC-73, so you don't need to touch your stored planes. Would sell them at book value to you.

If the C check had expired but the D check hadn't, checking that box would send it for a D check too

I had exactly the same situation: during fuel crisis some super 60s were stored and their D check expired. I was not able to convert them to super 70s without first performing D checks.

But anyway the time for super 70s conversion also has passed in GW2. Time to scrap them and embrace the next generation of fuel efficient jets. A D check then conversion would cost over 10 millions and with gradually falling fuel price itís not worth the cost. (By my calculation fuel saving is about 2M/year which takes 5 years to break even if currently stored.)

This is now fixed. So it may be worthwhile converting in storage if you think you will be using it for more than 3 years.
