Yakolve Yak-42

Hi all...

I am searching for a new aircraft... I am about to order the BAE-146... Just waiting the money to come in.. lol

But i was looking around, and i made some accounting comparing the Yak-42 and the BAe-146-200

Yak-42
-------------------------------------
Maintenance (month)
57.532 USD
Week
14.383 USD

Fuel (100 hours)
449000 kg

x = 449000 kg * 153 USD / 1000 kg
x = 68 697 USD

Leasing:
45.632 USD / Week

Total weekly expenses without fuel: 60.015 USD

Total expenses spending 100h of fuel: 127.609 USD

----------------------------
BAE-146
----------------------------
Maintenance (month)
28.307 USD
Week:
7.076 USD

Fuel (100h)

x = 201.000 kg * 153 USD / 1000 kg

x = 30.753 USD

Leasing:
89.780 USD / Week

Total weekly expenses without fuel: 96.856 USD / week
Total expenses spending 100h of fuel: 127.609

So they cost almost the same, at the end... But the Yak has 108 seats and the Bae has 84...

So, before i try to buy it, has anyone had success using the Yak?

I am not considering the C-Check, i would get ride of it before the C expires.. But anyway

Interesting analysis.  Funny how they work out to precisely the same cost @ $153 for fuel.

In this game, being an Easy one, the Yak might not be such a bad way to go.  In a Hard one, where one can expect the fuel to surpass $1000, even $1500, suddenly the Yak has a ~$250,000/wk penalty though

You may want to take into account that the Yak needs an extra pilot ( which translates to 3 or 4 because of shifts). Their wage is around 3.700/month. Also, your math is based on current fuel prices which you can expect to triple ( at least ) at some point, while the leasing costs will decrease. Furthermore the BA has a slightly greater range which can be key depending on your routes.

I think you forgot to consider the fixed monthly maintenance cost for those. If it's like the Tupeluvs (cheap leasing but everything else  cost higher), the Yaks would cost more in that area. :P

I use Yaks. I don't love them, but I joined this game late and that's what you left me with! Anyway, I'm prospering for now... until the price of fuel goes that is.  :o
