    Downloaded this program Mon the 29. I find it totally impossible to use the times displayed in the jpeg picture when selecting any other time in the
    Flight Plan Editor / Leg List except the 24 hr.
    I want to use the 4 hr. It is more than enough time to make the flight too and from KSAT to KAUS. The distance is 57 miles 1 way and the duration is 38 minutes. But selecting the 4-6-8-12hr gives me a pop up window about improper format or something. Why?
    No problem using Ttools. But I want to learn this program. Only use FSX.
    Appreciate any help

    If you want to use a 4hr. repeat, the times you enter must be between 00:00and 03:59.

    If you really want to learn the program, you should invest the time to read the extremely well-written manual.

    I did, and I'm very happy that I did! :D

    But, 00:00 to 03:59 is night time. I want day time so I can see the AI.
    That would be like 13:00. So I HAVE to use 24Hr time to accomplish this?
    I am referring to GMT times only

    Yes you will have to use the 24hr time.

    Every 4 hours means precisely that: an a/c flying the same flight every four hours!

    00:00 to 03:59 // this is the time-frame that defines the flight(s)
    04:00 to 07:59 // all of the following time-frames repeat the flight(s)
    08:00 to 11:59
    12:00 to 15:59
    16:00 to 19:59
    20:00 to 23:59

    Bill, thank you so much for the help.

    Never saw this in the AIFP help, but that doesn't mean much either
    Appreciate your time

    For the benefit of other users, this is explained in Section 7.1 of the User Manual.

    ...which oddly enough, is precisely where I read about it! Amazing, eh? :idea:
