Most likely there won't be catagories like local regional long range etc. never the less good aircraft

ok. Unless further discussion is started these planes will be added to the list.

The Cessna 195 seems a bit small - but hey, it'll be fun to have a go flying


Regarding these short range/local routes, could there be a way to make them a bit more profitable?

I don't know. In CA, I operated a local airline with a bunch of DHC 6-Twin Otters, they were the best locals, but only made about $800-$1999 per flight, while the Cessna 208s made about $30-$700. There needs to be a way to make it profitable here. Perhaps, local planes need to unlock once a person reaches a certain rating, therefore they will have more upgrades and a higher chance of making some actual money with locals. Or we could just make it more profitable then CA all together. The 195s hold 4 pax.

Fuel discount for low consumption?
Less Maint. Cost?

Here's an idea. Small aircraft are usually operated on remote flights from small airports to major hubs (in the UK anyway.) Maybe you could treat local flights as charters and increase the price of the tickets or something?

Yes.

Nah. I mean airlines operate them in Hawaii for inter-island flights

Should they be added?
