More Information

This only seemed to happen when the terrain wasn’t downloaded already a short while before the flight. It didn’t happen on the second and third attempt. Decided to clear cache: it crashed again. Seems to be some kind of terrain loading issue.

This other problem might be related: I calibrated after the flight was loaded, I was able to switch camera views and the plane model was loaded. But… there is no sound and I couldn’t move the camera inside the cockpit (look at the swipes for reference). After some time I pressed the menu button and the sound started playing, the aircraft dropped onto the runway and became flyable. A bit like the game thought I was in the pause menu when I wasn’t.

I’ve had a similar issue with pressing calibrate then the plane immediately crashes upon spawning.

The issue was fixed after I cleared cache, and restarted my device. Something worth trying.

With me it only seems to happen after I have cleared cashe or when I haven’t flown there recently.

maybe try clearing scenery cache? I once had this issue at RJAA and after clearing everything was fine

^As I have said above. Clearing the scenery cashe makes the problem occur more often.

Then maybe restart your device and try again?

I believe this was fixed in the latest beta release.

Yes quite possibly, just giving it a test on this new version, and all was good

On the latest release it states " fixed occasional crashing when starting flights"

So yes, this is fixed I imagine 👍
