Ian Harrison Please explain why it took 1h14m to get there and 2h21m to get back. You took off at 8:42 and at 9:40 were reported as approaching. Then what happened from 9:40 to 11:10? In any event it seems you have exceeded the maximum time allowed of 2 hours.
Deon Schlebusch Hi Ian, I paused the flight as I had to attend to something. Is that not allowed on this tour? Why SmartCars decided to report a approach I don't know, I was flying and descended to about 3400ft due to wind coming from the front and then I noticed the report to approach. Can you maybe put some light on it why it will report an approach if it was not one.
Ian Harrison Deon, I can't give you an answer. It has you flying from 9:40 to 11:10.Did you do anything peculiar or unusual which could have caused Smartcars to report this long time. As you can see, the only pauses are short ones of 10 minutes.
Deon Schlebusch Nope nothing, I see the problem started on the last Sim unpaused 9:40 then showed 11:10. The flight in total definitely did not take 2 hours.
Ian Harrison Deon, I will refer this to Dieter to investigate. I will accept your word on this and let you carry on.
Deon Schlebusch Thanks Ian!
