It’s important to keep your aircraft in good flying condition.   If you don’t the aircraft will become unusable and may even fail mid flight.  Hired pilots will refuse to fly if the values are below 25.

 

The hull & engine lights give you an indication of condition, if you want more detail hover your mouse over the light to get an exact value.  

 

To manage your aircraft, right click and a menu will appear.

  • You can pay to have the hull repaired

  • Pay to have an engine overhaul

  • Pay for the aircraft to be flown to the pilots location

  • Sell the aircraft

  • Start/stop insurance

  • Search for a mission for the selected aircraft

  • Search market at this location

Insurance
 

You have the option of insuring your aircraft.  The insurance will cover the replacement cost of the aircraft in the event of a crash. 

The insurance can be started and stopped on a per mission basis. 

 

The cost of the insurance is dependent on the category of the plane, a percentage of the mission earnings  will be taken. 

 

Cat A = 5%, Cat B = 6%, Cat C = 7%, Cat D = 8%, Cat E = 9%,  Cat F = 10%

 

 

To insure your aircraft, right click the aircraft and then left click start/stop insurance.

NF Hangar Jump cockpit.gif

You will be taken to the Flying Tab.  Here you have to match the settings to the mission you are wanting to take over.

So like on a normal mission, within MSFS:

  • Select the correct plane, select any airport as departure (but DO NOT select the airport you will be landing at) and click fly.   

  • Add the goods weight & mission weight as per the mission brief. 

  • Start up the plane (if it isn't already).   

  • If you are expecting to jump to a cold or dark part of the world you might want to select suitable lighting and de-icing.

  • Press active pause

  • Deactivate the parking brake

  • Click Connect & Fly and you will be ‘teleported’ to the cockpit of the plane currently controlled by AI.

  • Adjust your throttle to suit the situation

  • Press active pause again and you have now taken over the plane.

  • If you wish, enter a flight plan into the GPS and land as normal. 

  • A 10% bonus will be awarded if you complete the mission yourself.

  • Once you have landed, you (your pilot) will be back at the original location before taking over.  You can then choose to carry on your own flying your own missions or jump into another AI cockpit and land again
