Follow ai aircraft problem

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

A bit of help please. Was wondering why when I ‘follow’ an ai aircraft from departure to arrival airport it cuts back to departure airport just before it lands and the aircraft has gone?

I followed a Qantas A380 from LHR to DXB and just before it landed at DXB, literally 20 seconds from touchdown, the simulator took me straight back to LHR, at the runway threshold and the aircraft had gone!! 

Anyone know why this is please? Do I need to change some settings? 

Many thanks

The first thing to establish is whether your DXB has parking sufficient for an A380.  If not, or the parking is occupied by others, your AI is deleted near touchdown.  When the AI you are following is deleted, STB returns you back to where you started from.

After that, please set up a trace as per appendix C of the user guide, reproduce the problem and send me the trace file with details of the AI you were following (all flight details please)

Thanks Simon. That makes sense. Am using the Flytampa DXB scenery. A very busy airport. Will make a trace and send the file over.

many thanks
