Re: some thought about more realistic

Yeah, it was our owner (Tim) original idea back in 2012. Then we got a guy who is really good with spreadsheets and using Google sheets and he linked them all up to a master ledger. It's pretty neat to look at any given aircraft and see it's history from day 1 with the airline. We track not only inc...

Re: some thought about more realistic

I've been on it, looks about the same to me .... took me awhile to find the 'actions' thingy you are talking about ... duh ... Fleets. We have aircraft logs for every aircraft from day of purchase so we know when it was last serviced just by our own paperwork .... Our CFO is a spreadsheet wizard and...

Re: some thought about more realistic

Yeah, before we decided to go with our 1 year annual requirement program last year we were shocked at how many planes had not been serviced since purchase and some of them were 6 yrs old at the time!! We spent just over $64 million to get our fleet "compliant" with current 1 year annual inspections.

Re: some thought about more realistic

"move it to a municipal airport" .... tearing up the pavement in the process :shock: One of the items where we try to separate the "gaming" from the "reality" .... In order to fly an aircraft into a particular airport, we require the pilot to show proof of "real world precedent". This means they hav...

Re: some thought about more realistic

We track all aircraft revenue individually, so we would prefer to have a billing system "per aircraft".... but also how will it be billed? By month? By week? By the day? If we have to log every parking fee for every aircraft daily into our own financial records, that will become a huge workload hass...

New Feature Idea - Ground Aircraft icon

For some owner/operators it would be nice to be able to ground specific aircraft without having to pull type ratings for all others. We operate with the policy all aircraft must maintain a current 1 year inspection certificate (A Service) and when our Franchise Fleet operators let one expire, I'd li...

Re: Ticket Prices

Other factors that affect passenger / cargo loads are the airline reputation value (120 is the highest) and your pilot reputation. People don't want to fly with airlines or pilots who crash a lot or can't find where they are going .... :roll:

Re: Ticket Prices

Airlines compete with each other for market share so if you are flying a popular route and have high prices, chances are high your planes will be mostly empty. :shock:

Re: Maintenance Centers

Possibly putting an aircraft into a center that is not large enough to handle it? 747's can only be serviced at Extra Large Maintenance Centers.
