Jumping the C Check Gun
« on: May 04, 2010, 04:20:32 PM »
I've got a B757 and B767 which are soon to signal the start of my C Check season! Problem is they overlap. The 767 will still have a few days "in the shop" when the 757 needs to go in and that's going to leave me two a/c running.

Is it worth jumping the gun and putting one of them through C Check a little early to avoid this and the financial issues of two close together or just do them as they come timetabled?

Depends on a lot of factors I guess... Competiton etc. in any case, I would try to take on a credit early on and then let the more important one go into C-check right on, so they do not overlap.

Do one early, or leave one for a few weeks until the other is done. I've got away with an expired C-check for quite a while on a previous game. Takes a while before the fines and grounding to kick in but not entirely sure how random the ramp inspections are.

Be careful with that though, I accidentally turned off auto C-check in Jet Age and almost killed my airline in a day or two.  Building CI back up to 90 from 10 is no fun...

Yep, this is where the micro-manager has fun!  You can set up a really easy C check system if you do them manually but, like ucfknightryan said, you have to be on top of it.  This is also where fleet commonality really matters.  Lease a cheap model identical to what you are flying then begin a C check extravaganza - manually start your C check cycle using your new leased a/c to cover existing routes - then when one a/c is done, immediately use it to cover another a/c's routes and then put that a/c into C check, and so on.  It's expensive to do but you get all your C checks done one after the other and then you are good to go for several months.  This system also rotates your a/c so schedule and flight hours/landings get spread around and you never miss a beat on income.
