Hello! I just started a flight but something popped up in the middle of my flight which is causing me to leave. I am on the expert server but I am worried that If I just leave and keep IF in the background that I could get a violation. So my question is will I get a violation for leaving on expert mid flight?
No you wont ;) you will just loose connection from the server with no consequences.
Depends what your doing… If you leave your aircraft on overspeed (250kts below FL100) yes. Other than that, your fine, nothing to worry about rather then your personal needs :)
If you hit ‘end flight’ you won’t.
If you leave the app for a few minutes you won’t
If you have enough fuel and are at a stable cruise you should be fine too :)
IF cannot run in the background. Unless you meant sitting on a table or something while you did something else.
I am planning to leave IF and resume the flight later. Is that ok?
Closing the app will end the flight and you will not be able to pick up where you left off.
If you paused it and minimized it there is no guarantee that it will be available when you come back.
The best advise it to quit the flight an obtain whatever XP you have up to that point. The flight will not continue either way otherwise.
If you leave the app for like a quick minute to pick up the phone or something you should be good.
However if you leave the app for a few minutes or kill the app it is unlikely you will be able to resume.
I quit the app often during mid flight, I just make sure I leave the graphics low and nothing happens. Yesterday I was in the middle of flying from KFLL to OMDB and left for an hour and when I came back, I could pick off where I had left. In fact, right now I should be flying my American A320 from KATL to KDFW but I chosed to stay here reading in the forum and continue later just hoping the app won’t crash :-)
Hold up, I’m a bit confused. Are we talking about closing the app completely (opening recent apps and then swiping up/down/left/right on IF) or just pressing the home button and not closing IF?
If you do that you can just resume the flight where you left off, but if you swipe up your flight will completely end.
However even if you press the home button only, when you’re outside of the app for too long, IF would just restart, losing all of the flight progress. If you have to use other apps for longer than 5 mins, I recommend opening IF once in a while to prevent it from restarting.
Also, being outside of the app (clicking hoke button, not swiping it and killing the app), this would effectively pause the game. So no violations, nothing will happen when you are outside of the app. You will just disconnect from the Live Server, and disappear from everyone’s map. Once you return, you will find yourself at the exact same area where you left of. For example, you’re climbing to FL350 and you exit IF at about FL280, when you return you will find yourself still at FL280 and climbing, and roughly at the same geographical coordinates.
We are making this complicated.
No. If you need to quit, there’s nothing wrong with that.
It’s more responsible than those that leave it going then complain when something happens while they were away.
