matt.buttsworth -> Airbone troops error message. (8/1/2012 1:38:42 PM)

I have an airport brigade with experience 41 on an airbase with four good air transport units TBs and Lis. It is 29 hexes from the landing zone.
When I try to fly, it says cannot fly here, landing zone must be a friendly hex.
Why is this so?
I thought 41 experience would fly to any hex!
Any advice appreciated.

v1.06.11 - May 10, 2012

New Features and Rule Changes


4. Rule Change (Section 16.3.6) - Airborne units may only be dropped within 8 hexes of a supplied friendly unit. See the next item for the interface change that has been made for airborne drops.

5. Interface Change (Section - To airdrop a unit, now you must go to air transport mode and then left click on the hex containing the airbase and airborne unit. Make sure the airborne unit(s) you wish to drop are selected in the unit bar. Next, shift-left click on a hex near the airfield. This will cause the pick air units mission window to be displayed. Close this window and you will now see the hexes where you may conduct an airdrop lit up, while those that are not possible will be displayed in. Shift-left click on the hex you wish to drop the airborne unit and the pick air units mission window will appear. Due to some issues with the interface, the only way to indicate the valid hexes to airdrop in is to click on a valid hex. If you click on an invalid hex it will not bring up the air window nor will it indicate the valid hexes. This is why we suggest you click somewhere near the airbase. Whenever the air window appears, you can execute the air drop. It is important that you select the airborne unit after you have entered air transport mode (previously the airborne unit was supposed to be selected while still in movement mode).
