Occasionally I like to take the TBM or C172 from an uncontrolled field nearby my choice of destination airport, basically to make a short flight to rack up my landings needed for grade 3.
The trouble i run into is that most smaller fields have no taxiways/aprons/gates, so the flight starts hot in takeoff position. However, on the training server this means the Weight and Balance settings are unavailable.
I’ve been working around this by setting up a dummy flight at some Charlie or Bravo field nearby, do the settings i want, then End Flight and restart at my intended departure.
Is this just the way things work? Is there some way to adjust settings at smaller, ready for takeoff fields?
Personally whenever I’m at an airport with no taxiways or spawn points to adjust weight and balance I just taxi to the side of the runway where it allows me to adjust weight and make a flightplan, then I’ll get back on the runway to start my flight.
Really no other way around it until those airports are edited to have spawn points or aprons/taxiways.
