Loosing Aircraft

Post by UKD192 » Sun Feb 03, 2008 2:52 am

We are increasingly finding that when aircraft end their lease, they are NOT being returned to the Airline, but are put up for sale by FlyNET Aviation Inc. !
We used to get this about 1 time every two months, but the past 3 days has seen 3 aircraft disappear from our fleet and end up for sale on the Traders List by FlyNET Aviation Inc !!!

Could this be a bug, due to the fact that we have multiple fleet types now ? It seems to have started about the time we were able to modify the fleet !

Has any one else found this problem ?

and by the looks of the signature photo I've been kicked out of the Airline as well. :P

Now you mention it i am pretty sure that B763 G-BNWH was one of mine and now Flynet inc. has got it up for sale on the traders list.Trouble is with such a big fleet i can,t be certain.I have started copying my Fleet lists and pasting them into Notepad to be saved in the Flynet folder but i only started doing this about a month ago.
I just checked back and i leased this aircraft to Palegre on the 18.1.2008 and now it is for sale by Flynet inc.
Perhaps it could be returned to my fleet,please.
On further examination i lay claim to the following aircraft also on traders list for sale by Flynet Inc.
TC-KOF 737
TC-DXZ 739
G-BNWH 767

As the unfortunately ex-CEO of Palegre I can confirm that B763 G-BNWH was leased from Manchester International Airways, and I can see more of our previously leased aircraft for sale by Flynet.


It may be that the owner has also gone bust, but I doubt it, we only leased from the bigger operations. Several other aircraft that we had on lease appear to have gone back to their owners. IIRC the aircraft listed were from two sub-fleets.

VAs go out of business regularly (unintentionally in our case) but leased aircraft need to go back to their owners, if not leasing becomes a very risky business, or gets priced out of all proportion to reduce risk. Also, when Palegre went under we were not a poor airline, there was money enough to compensate all owners for the loss of income from their leases.

There is another aspect too. I've started again from zero, but because of this I could easily find myself blacklisted and unable to lease additional aircraft.

Please send Konny an e-mail at info@flynet.en-studios.de. What is happening is that the airline which was leasing your aircraft was closed before the end of the lease and instead of being returned, it appears they were incorrectly sent to the trader's list. Konny will be able to take care of the issue for you.

Ok, I think I fixed this bug and all aircraft once operated by Palegre have been returned to there proper owners owners, although you may have to reassign the fleets, although one of stan's had been purchased by somebody else so I gave you another identical aircraft.

I had a similar problem myself recently, which was found to be due to my Airline pilot ID number being changed (was originally BJA109 which got changed to BJA103... returning it to the original value (BJA109) cured the issue. Hope that helps
