I thought you said you didn’t get logged. which I assume the logbook at the end of the flight didn’t appear. to me whenever the logbook appears, my flight is logged. But if I sit there on the parking spot after I cutoff my engines and the logbook doesn’t appear to end the flight. My flight isn’t logged.
So that’s just a trick I do when my logbook doesn’t appear, (which signifies my flight isn’t logged) and I do the trick to get my flights logged.
I suppose it’s forcing the game to log the flight the same way it behaves with your other flight. Logging the hours without having the logbook appears.
