Fuel Trucks?
« on: April 19, 2009, 07:47:21 pm »
Are fuel trucks available at KLAS?  When I hit shift-F I get a message saying that they are not available at this airport.

For the record, fuel trucks slow the departures of the ai traffic. Because once an ai plane calls for a fuel truck it CANNOT leave until it has been fueled. FSX does not really allow the use of mulitple fuel trucks, they do but they have to each be working a specific area. Sometimes I have called for a fuel truck and I was number 7 in line, and that takes a good amount of time for it to make its way over to me. I have found that the ai flows more smoothly if there are no fuel trucks.

Just my opinion. Thought I would share it.
