I’d just like to make a little introduction. I’m Emmiran, nice to meet you I stumbled upon AirlineSim late last year,and when I did it was just as Xiguan was launching. So I bought some credits and devoured the forums, the beginners blog post, the wiki, some YouTube stuff. I was all ready to dive in… then Christmas, New Year etc took me away. In the new year I once again returned, only to move on again. And a 3rd time. But now I’m here properly! I think I was lacking a direction within a really blank canvas. I knew I wanted to start in Perth, Australia ( my home city ) but beyond that I didn’t have much direction. So I decided to set myself a challenge, and it is this ;
Emmiran Global Transport Holdings, through it’s subsidiaries will offer at minimum 2 weekly flights to EVERY airport in Oceania that has been issued an ICAO code ( All 388 of them! ). This will mean that anyone in Oceania will be within connection range of a 4 bar or higher airport, even if it means direct flights from remote islands. Flight is a right, not a privilege.
On top of this, we will also offer a minimum of 1500kg in cargo capacity to all 388 ICAO airports, meaning all of Oceania has access to the goods they may require.
So the challenge is on. Can a complete rookie achieve this? It’s going to be a long tough haul that’s for sure with a lot of lessons along the way. Oh…one final note… I will never restart. Yep. Just as the final difficulty icing on the cake.
Now the more observant may say I have already restarted several times, and that’s possibly true, but I’ve never flown a flight in any previous visit, so I’m going to write them off. Likewise it may be noted I started a few days ago, then restarted today. That’s because I figured I’d possibly need multiple enterprises to cover different maintence classes etc so I left some money on the holding to do that. Except for some reason I thought the minimum was $2M, turns out it is $3M and I couldn’t fire up the 2nd one, hence the restart. But we’re locked and loaded now. FLIGHT Oceania (FOL) looks forward to taking to the skies, and FLIGHT Oceania Regional is also set up to handle some of the more niche routes we will be offering to make sure all of Oceania can explore the world.
While there is some information out there on starting an airline, I’d also like to contribute and will be documenting my progress. Whether that takes the shape of blog posts, recorded videos or live streams I’m not 100% sure yet, but adding another voice with another style of articulation can’t hurt in trying to get more airlines to start and stick around.
And with that, the challenge is ON… wish me luck
