Default Planes will not repair when only gear/wheels are damaged.

Me and others noticed that planes will not repair when only the gear or wheels are damaged (wheels i know for sure). It seems that it doesn't register it as damage.

(Edit: I don know what i tried to say afterwards. But that was gibberish so i deleted).

If your wheels or undercarriage are damaged and you can't taxi off the runway I don't believe you get any repairs.
This applies to any repair while you are still on the runway.

I have seen the wheel issue mentioned before, I do look out for it. seeing a short track would help but it is difficult in an online session.

You should be able to get a repair on the runway, as long as the airfield is friendly and there are no enemy within the airfields influence as far as I am aware.

I know things change from update to update but I do remember there was either no re-arming or re-fueling or repairing on the runway...unless that has all changed.

You do get repairs anywhere on the airfield (unless they recently changed it). But i never repair on the runway anyway. I noticed this bug several times now on different places and double checked with others.

We also have been noticing an occasional denial of repairs. I couldn't put my finger on the circumstances though, I'll pay more attention next time to see if it's gear/wheels/tires damage causing the repair not to be initiated.

We are multiplayer only so we just re-select another slot to continue in another aircraft abandoning the damaged and un-repaired one. Still, it would be nice to pinpoint this bug and get it fixed.

Could it have something to do with not registering landings.

I have the same problem in my single player missions. No repair if gear or fuselage is damaged!!! (I checked for more than 20 Minutes, after I got a "copy" from the ground crew - no effect).

which single player mission was this simpit?

It would be nice to catch this one, as it has been mentioned before.

I will have a chat with the ED team in the morning about it
