So I have a dilemma.
I already have three aircraft type under my parent company, but I would like to expand my cargo network, however the cargo aircraft I want to purchase is in a different maintenance category than the three planes I have.
Correct me if I am wrong but in order to avoid the maintenance penalty, the only option would be to found a new enterprise under my parent company. I’m apprehensive to do that because the only way to realize those profits is to create an IPO, however the server I’m on doesn’t allow IPO’s. So it’s either found an enterprise under my parent company and they operate as virtually two separate companies, but I can interline, or found a separate holding (with no parent company) but they still have to operate as separate companies, and no interlining.
I know I can transfer fully purchased airplanes, but I usually lease them all as I’ve never made enough money on the temporary servers to have enough money to purchase a plane outright, without losing time or market share opportunity.
So my question. What would be the BEST option.
To take the 15% penalty across all my aircraft in the entire fleet for the 4th model?
Open another enterprise or holding?
or another option I’m overlooking?
