Changing the clock.
A particular TE mission, Saved tab, Training CAP, package 3703, has a TOT 16.55.00.
Falcon time is 16.33.28.
By using the Flight plan tab, I can alter the TOT to 16.47. There are no earlier slots available.
This leaves 8 minutes, approximately, to wait.
Is there a way further to reduce the wait?
try TE>saved tab>Edit> change falcon time (see what will work, going back some likely) save and see.
In other words, edit the saved time, and play with falcon time to get what you want. Not from flight plan tab.
Let me try again:
Using saved tab>edit, enter the TE and change the clock in a way that will allow you to set the flight time to what you want.
Change the clock time back to what you want if you can.
Save, exit the editor, then enter the TE and advance the clock time if needed and stop and save the TE again from within the TE itself.
You did everything from Falcon editor? I suggest you to use Mission Commander.
Thanks Axe, I’ll try that.
vandroy…would you mind elaborating on using the Mission Commander in this case please.
Your goal is to reduce the time between joining the TE and the take off, right?
First backup the original mission file!
Open the mission with Mission Commander and under Campaign -> Dates change Current Time to the time you want when you commit the TE (remember apply changes and save).
Or you can change the take off time of your flight: under Units find the flight you want, double click and use the function Shift Times (for example you could insert - 0.0:20:00 to have a take off 20 minutes earlyer.
I think the first option, that gives the same result as Axe said, is the less dangerous.
