Last leg of the Tour. Nice Airport - Plane spawn on runway and had to go around if not I would of crashed. Who spawns on the runway while on Vatsim. Ruining a good flight. Hope this doesn't get rejected

Going around is a normal operating procedure. Well done on completing the tour!

Thank you. I know and understand that it is a standard procedure. My query is who in their right mind spawns right on the runway into vatsim knowing that it is multiplayer (flyer) environment. It's the small things that get to me lol

Too right... It's completely against the VATSIM COC as well. They need to be burned with fire!

I have a question. I want to the KSAN tour but, it has 2 long hauls flights. Now just because you have been great at responding and seem to have a good sense of humor. What are the specific rules to afk when it comes to long hauls? Example.. I set it up and make sure all is well and head to bed while I'm over the Atlantic or Pacific oceans. Can I sleep through the cruise and then wake up an hour prior to TOD. Thoughts?

You would need to hit the AFK every hour. When the AFK window pops up, until you click it, your flight time is suspended so you would lose all your overnight time until you click it in the morning. That really makes the flight pointless. For any flights over 3 hours long, you have to have less than 20% of AFK minutes or the flight is rejected so no, I'm afraid you can't do it.

Well, I guess I'll do the flight in the early morning @ work :P. Going to have to make it work since I do want to do as many tours as I can. Thanks
