Explore a CEO inside of you

Dear everyone,

I would like to present you a new generation of create-your-own-airline topics. In this one, I encourage you to create your own airline with an estimation of expenditures. Yes, I know there are similar topics but why is this one different? Just because this one has a set of rules.

Goal:

General: Create your airline with set budget

Advanced: Plan your actions to generate as much profit as possible during 3 or 5 year time

Rules:

  1. You start with a budget of $ 1000 million
  2. You can only use this budget to “buy” planes, open new hubs and hire new employees.

Prices:

  1. Opening new hub:
    i. If the chosen airport is class Charlie, then the price is $20 million
    ii. If it is class Bravo airport, the price is $70 million
  2. Buying new planes:
    Available options:58ee8d113545163ec1942cd3, airbus-1-logo-png-transparent, bombardier-aerospace-1-logo-png-transparent, cessna-logo-png-transparent, Embraer_logo

    This tax is payed as a % from final income.

  3. Catering and other services on flights:

How to earn money?

  1. One month of a plane operation will make you a total profit of:

Price of the plane / million * 120 = total profit per month
Example:
1 A340 price for which is $304 million will generate: 304 * 120 = $36480
But if you have purchased fuel storage, you can add $200 thousand to each of your months

E195 $6480 $77760

Example
I have two Boeing 787, this gives me ($372002) $74400 per month. I have elite catering on both of them, which costs me $12648 (17% from 74400 (744000.17)). Also, I have a crew of 6 on each of them, which costs me $20832 (28% from $74400 per month). Therefore, my net profit is $74400-($12648+$20832) = $40929. OR simply 74400 - 45% = 74400*(1-0.45) = 40920.
You can also estimate this profit from yearly figure.

We already have something like this:


I know you mentioned the rules, but I still find it to be too similar.

Yes, it is true. However, in this one I offer you to estimate cost, so you don’t end up seeing people with 100 Boeings 747 and so on:)

To be honest it’s still the same. You can still include costs in a post on this topic.

I find this particular main post to be more organized than the other one. Although people are saying that this one is very similar to the current existing one, i do have to say that, yes that is true but i like this post quite a lot more actually :)

Don’t want to look like I’m bumping this thread or something lol:))

What my airline would look like:

4 x Boeing 737
1 x Boeing 787
6 x CRJ1000 as they cost pretty much the same as other CRJ models but is much bigger
And obviously 1 hub in a Class Bravo airport.

It would probably operate in the USA, somewhere in LA. We could have long hauls to Asia or Europe and flight on CRJ’s and 737’s to Canada or other States

Holy hell this is detailed to the finest expense. I’d try and make an airline for this but I’d get 100% turned around on myself, and go way over budget.

I would honestly not have 1 of any aircraft type starting out. As an avid AE player, maintenance and type ratings are expensive. Just some advice to all.
