Re: some thought about more realistic

Yeah that would probably be the safest way too, could back out of any new item that has issues without affecting others. We are being proactive and setting our own 'standards' for Jan 1. All aircraft to have current annual inspections, aircraft shall not be posted for sale with an outdated annual in...

Re: some thought about more realistic

Sounds like a really good option for guys who want to keep all their planes but haven't got the time to fly them to keep them current. If the maintenance status hit for planes not flown does not exceed 5% annually, it really becomes a non issue as the aircraft will need an annual A service anyway. I...

Re: Change Cargo

There always has been a problem with the current system loading to max zero fuel weight with the pilot having no way to remove cargo other than to get down to MTOW. This has caused many "exceeded max landing weight" advisories as the max landing weight on some aircraft in FSA are set so you would ha...

Re: some thought about more realistic

Honestly with the path we are down, I don't see how it's going to be anything but complicated. There needs to be a way to keep it simple for it to work at all in my opinion. While it's true the "simple method" won't emulate full real world operations, I don't think there are any FSA owners out there...

Re: some thought about more realistic

One more thought tonight and I will cease and desist: Instead of just "delcaring" an airport as a hub, require owners to actually build a maintenance center there and when they do, they will get "preferred parking rates". This will allow larger operators to have multiple places to get breaks on park...

Re: some thought about more realistic

Well the fleet idea does not let us see how much parked hangar queens are costing us but it's a pretty valid compromise. If there is a way to get FSA data to talk to Google sheets via some magic formula, that would be ideal, we could then have our finance guy Mich pull specific data to specific area...

Re: some thought about more realistic

For the record, I am not against the parking fee idea with regard to making things more realistic. I just think the way we track stats at Fly Vegas it will be "difficult at best" for us to incorporate the billing of said fee's to individual aircraft, not to mention the man hours required to post to ...

Re: some thought about more realistic

I am still concerned about how a parking fee system would bill out …. For us to have to update every one of our aircraft logs daily would be a deal breaker and we would not be participating in the advanced system as the paperwork would just become too much to do. Of course not all airlines do the pa...

Re: some thought about more realistic

How will parking slots be distributed? Can airlines claim an airport as their hub and if so how many airlines would be able to claim the same airport as their hub? In what manner would hubs be allocated? Bids via airline seniority? Would declared hubs get a discount on parking? How many hubs is one ...

Re: some thought about more realistic

In looking at our fleet of 91 aircraft, right now today 28 of them would be in the "over 60 days not flown" penalty of .2% status hit. Will there be some sort of notification via FSA message when aircraft are assessed the over 60 days not flown status penalty? That sure would be helpful. Will the st...

Re: some thought about more realistic

If an aircraft is not flown within 60 days its repair status is reduced by 0.2% All aircraft must receive a maintenance check every two years to fly although officially 'passed due' at one year. All aircraft up for sale must have received an maintenance check within the last year. Airlines would be...

Re: some thought about more realistic

The cost of performing A services on all aircraft every year is prohibitive. For our purposes Cat, let's go with every other year, make it bi-annual. We can put this policy in place for our operation and not need an FSA directive. 8)

Re: some thought about more realistic

I like the idea of a two tiered system - optional for those who want it but not mandatory for those who don't. I am probably one of the few VA owners in FSA to be blessed with having both real world pilots and those who love to crunch numbers. It really should be up to each operator/owner to set the...
