  1. The Beechcraft King Air 350i is the most expensive and once leased I'll have enough to cover the leasing cost for the next month. I am planning to put it to immediate use, transferring the TBM850 back to the lessor will also earn me some. Cheers, Ivan
  2. Hey Matt, Yeah I've been flying non-stop for the past 3 days. about 9 hours a day, picking high fee cargo to small airports. One was a 700nm flight to Courchevel (risky!) that payed about 43 grand. Not bad for the TBM850. It's almost due for its A check in about 7 hours.
  3. So I currently have enough money to lease either the PC-12 or King Air 350i (both carenado). But I'm also enjoying my TBM850 Specs TBM 850 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOCATA_TBM#Specifications_(TBM_900) (you can take 14kts away from the speed and reduce range by 200nm. I adjusted the .cfg to match the payload of the TBM900) Specs PC-12 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilatus_PC-12#Specifications_(PC-12NG) Specs B350I https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beechcraft_Super_King_Air#Specifications Cheers, Ivan
  4. HOLY MOTHER OF ALL JACKPOTS Look at that job fee
  5. Thank you Brett, by the time of this writing I've done 4 more flights, nothing really interesting. Unfortunately, the weather isn't cooperating.
  6. Sorry, I'll see if I can make them direct pictures next time. Flying to EHLE Lelystad airport. Because that was the only job available and it's pretty low paying, but enough to cover the fuel costs and landing fees. Let's hope EHLE has better jobs
  7. Hello! I would like to introduce you to my newest company and my first company in Nomad mode! I started at EGBN Nottingham airport in a leased TBM850. I've already done 2 short flights and am currently located at EDWK Klagenfurt airstrip. Our next flight will be from EDWK to ESGK carrying 948kgs of Shrimp! http://prntscr.com/ijoe1e Our cruise is going to be FL270, expecting a 1h 20m trip Lovely bird, It's a late evening at 11:05 pm http://prntscr.com/ijofh3 http://prntscr.com/ijofur A quick taxi and we're ready for takeoff http://prntscr.com/ijoh5a And we're airborne! Barely missing the trees 30m from the runway. Enroute to Sweden! http://prntscr.com/ijoiei Cabin view isn't bad for the passenger seat, I prefer having cabin lights below 5000ft in the dark. Now let's hope I turned off the autopilot before going back here! http://prntscr.com/ijoj4f We're above 5000ft so that means that cabin lights can go back on, the weather is nice but it's a bit windy. http://prntscr.com/ijok5u Lovely view http://prntscr.com/ijolbq I hope I strapped the cargo down well enough because we might be in for a flying bouncy castle. http://prntscr.com/ijomdt I love the TBM850, It's my favourite single-prop aircraft after the Cessna C208B with the PC-12 and C182 Skylane shortly after for Airhauler. http://prntscr.com/ijonb1 http://prntscr.com/ijooch At cruise and we're about to cross the Danish Straits, time to hop in the back, relax and enjoy the view, http://prntscr.com/ijoqed http://prntscr.com/ijor2j Crossed the strait into Sweden, 70nm to go http://prntscr.com/ijp628 Time to descend http://prntscr.com/ijp9nr On Short final http://prntscr.com/ijpe9h Touchdown http://prntscr.com/ijpep1 And Shutting down, 21.000 Euros richer, just 72000 left to pay off my lease I hope you guys like my first flight report on here. Thinking of joining the AT7W with my trusty TBM 850. Let me know what you guys think! (I did prntscr links on purpose, as I noticed that I cannot see pictures on posts before 2017). Sincerely Ivan
  8. Hello everyone After 7 months I talked about my Islandair Company. The company has had a massive growth, -New destinations like the Faroe islands, Ireland and Iceland with a stop in Aberdeen have been added. -2 new bases have been opened: Cork and Aberdeen -Services to Guernsey Airport EGJB and Alderney Airport EGJA have been terminated as we retire the Dorniers and DHC-7. -Our fleet has been expanded to 7 ATR 42-600s (5 pax and 2 Cargo) The airline has become self-sufficient by itself and there is little for me to do. So 2 months I've decided to start a new airline on Career mode, without a real base flying point to point. I started out small in the Cessna 172, from EGTB Wycombe Air Park only to never return. (except to get the C185) Once I had the money, I sold the C172 and got the C185 which I used daily for 15 days straight. Fast-forward to now and I'm currently parked at LIRA Rome Ciampino Airport in my QW Bae 1460-300QT which I acquired just 2 days after selling my Q400 I had used for almost 2 weeks. I did have to swallow my throat seeing the difference in fuel burn ( around 750L/h more at optimal efficiency). (built a temp base in EGHH to get the Bae 146-300QT, already demolished) Now I have a question for you guys. What is a good airport to call "home"? Here are some requirements for the airport (can be slightly "bend"): -ILS -Min ~7000ft runway -Minimal RFF6 https://www.icao.int/safety/Lists/RFFCrashCharts/AllItems.aspx -I prefer near or in the Alps, but a nice channel hope is nice too. I had my eyes on LOWK Klagenfurt for a while, but maybe there are better options. High speed, Low drag Sincerely Ivan
  9. I calculated it so that the base is self sufficient and requires minimal attention. Only need to keep an eye on the condition and maintenance checks
  10. *NEW* Opened up a Base at EBAW Antwerp with 2 leased C206's They will Operate to EBCI Brussel Charleroi and EHTX Texel International Airport while also doing weekend flights to Southampton. We are starting to expand into the Dutch West Frisian Islands as there are a lot of potentials there. But our primary goal will stay focused on the Channel Islands.
  11. Looks like Sarah (the Grumman Goose pilot) is complaining about the goose having poor controls and being underpowered, she also said the passengers are complaining about it being uncomfortable and the limited capacity of just 6 pax. Losing passengers can be a disaster for such a fragile route with okay-ish demand and fierce competition from the fast ferry. So I was forced to return the Goose to the Lessor and get a Twin Otter with Floats. Luckily Sarah already has a type rating on it so she can immediately stop complaining. I did have to cut her paycheck by 4% to cover the lease w (hopefully she won't mind). addon: Aerosoft Twin Otter extended
  12. In AH2 you do have to do Type Ratings before you can actually commercially fly the aircraft. It improves the realism but can be a pain if you don't have much time.
  13. Thinking of putting major spotlights Illuminating the "Runway" and dock. But that's a hefty price and the flights during the day will do for now as Sark only has a population of 600. I also changed the times so at 8 am people can take the plane to Jersey and from there take the 9 am flight to their work on mainland or Guernsey and Alderney, then when they come back they can take the 7 pm flight back home and land before it becomes dark.
  14. Oh, they aren't, Although Labour-unions force me to give them a free weekend which is why they only operate Monday to Friday. I did reach an agreement with Harrison and his labour-union to let him fly on Saturday in return for a free Wednesday. Which is why I do those 2 flights with Dornier 4. I asked Jefferson how he is able to also fly the entire day without taking a break until I saw a Pillow in the cockpit which already gave me the answer, so for his hard work I gave him a blanket and installed a USB port on Dornier 1 to charge his phone. Unfortunately, Once we start replacing the Dorniers with ATR 42's Alderney won't be able to handle them. So he asked me if I could give him a de Havilland Canada DHC-7 instead of an ATR 42 which Alderney will be able to handle which has the same seats as the ATR 42. Seeing his commitment to the company, I accepted it and gave him a well-deserved promotion from CCL to Third Officer. Currently 3/4th of the way of leasing an ATR 42. Cheers Ivan
  15. I just made a fiction sea airport at the Sark isle. As this is a small island I will lease a Grumman Goose to ferry pax between Jersey and Sark (3x daily at 9 am, 1:30 pm and 6 pm. due to no lighting I will not allow my pilot to Fly at night). This will also bring us in direct competition from boat ferries servicing the same route.
