Transportation Fees

Postby bluestar » March 15th, 2017, 1:13 am

Good Evening Jon,

I am having a problem with transportation fees. For the last couple of weeks I am having a problem with an FSX crash to desktop (random) once I touch down and am rolling out. When I restart FSX my VAFS data will upload before I have a chance to restart the flight. My flights on March 13 from KDFW-KORD and returning on March 14 are prime examples. The transportation fees have been $1.5 and $1.1 Million for a flight that would have grossed under $200,000. The flights were saved by FSUIPC-VAFS.

Is there any way to prevent this or is it something I will have to live with until I get my FSX COD crash sorted.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Bill

Hey Bill,

Let's start here ... Do you have the latest version of FSUIPC v4.96?

Good Afternoon Jon,

Just some information about my earlier post on this subject. I may have found a common denominator. On almost all the flights where the Transportation Fee error occurred the mileage in 5,758. This would indicate to me that there may be some relationship between one of the algorithms used in the program and the Transportation fees. I also found one for 6151, 5310 and 4669. There were no Transportation fee errors other than those associated with the distances listed above.

I know you and Mike are busy with the next iteration of VAFS, but hopefully this might help somewhere down the line. :)

Grace and Peace,

Bill

You may be right Bill, good looking!

However, I am not sure that this is stable/consistent, throughout ... :roll:

Will keep looking out ... :?

Hello Sven

How are you?
No, don`t worry, I will bother you with VAFS 6 again.;-)

I have 2 Pilot that report me a very high Transportation Fee cost. I did check, and seems to be a bug
from VAFS. They took correct aircraft, flew correct route, no OOM.

Can I post it here, or I need to send you an email, with the flight Details?

Thank you very much for your kind help!
Kind Regards
