Hello

I apologize, for now I have not made corrections due to two reasons.
1) I wanted to correct file in github, but I have some problem to use it and, if I understand it, you would not be able to import the corrections automatically as you use svn.
2) I am undecided, I do not know whether it is more correct to consider a bag of mail = 50kg (as currently configured in pak britain) or stay with the configuration of a bag of mail = 85kg.
In my view, using one bag of mail = 50kg, aircraft have very high capacities, which combined with lower usage costs (in fact, an air freight has fewer staff, no catering, no need to keep the seats, entertainment facilities etc etc.) involve a situation of high profitability of the transport of mail.

What do you say, I use 50 or 85?

I'd use 50kg as with the rest of pak128.Britain. In any case the whole set needs a major rebalance at some stage.

Hello James & The Hood

I'm providing the accommodation of the payload. As for the mail I should be well under way. But (sorry if I continue to ask) as regards other goods as I do?
In respect of carriage of mail, if I to calculate the capacity of the aircraft I divide the maximum load for the weight of a sack of mail, I do the same for other types of good?
Or I leave the capacity for other goods equal to that of the post?

Thank's
Giuseppe
