Read somwhere that you are in charge of a fund in NYC, maybe time to start considering an investment in AWS?  ;)

That would be interesting. But Sami is too far from NYC (I believe somewhere in Norway?) to meet with him.

Besides, Dan, as the #1 player in this platform (arguably  :P) how would you invest funds in this website to make it grow besides massive web advertising? If AWS became a highly profitable venture.... most of the players that are hooked on it today (myself included of course) wouldnt enjoy it anymore. But hopefuly Sami reads this..... if they were to open their books to me I would love to have a private discussion about a venture.

He is over in Finland and what does that matter in todayís internet age  ;) One word I say, Web-Conferences.

Interesting question, how to spend money. Well my missus has her own ideas on how to spend my money :'(
But here is here's my answer.
- Get Sami to go full time. There are so many more things that AWS could have/do. Cargo, Travel Agencies, Hotels, Car Rentals. More detailed/specific demand. Low Cost Carriers etc. etc. the list is endless. At the moment he is doing this as a hobby if I remember it correctly....
- I would be inclined to invest in more targeted web advertising. There must be Thousands of websites out there for Aircraft enthusiast that he could hit with AWS. On a side note: A year or so ago I sent an email to Sami that he should target the plan-spotters that every airport in the world has :-) Not all of them are old duffers and Iím sure they would enjoy it.
- Of course you would enjoy it, more to do. At the moment the biggest challenge for the game is that it gets a bit boring half way through. If there was more to do you will just keep on playing.........

What is Sami's day job?
And just for the record: Day job by definition is something you love or hate but you do it to pay the bills and support hobbies. Hobbies, on the other hand, are things you love to do but dont get you paid (most hobbies actually cost money to do).

So I dont care who you are in this world..... if someone offered you the same or more money to do your hobby full time and quit your job, you would do it without thinking twice. Maybe if you are heavily obsessed with your job and love it so much... you can make it your hobby  ;)

Looks like Dan put some thought into this. Maybe AWS should hire you if they get some seed money to expand. The 1 million dollar question is: are all of the things you mentioned great only on paper or could they actually work? I believe this entire platform and script would need to be rewritten.

Also, in my opinion, one of the things that would absolutely change the fact that halfway the game gets boring would be the ability of lending cash between airlines at agreed upon rates. And ultimately, the ability to halfway through take over other airlines. This way, the few survivors would face the same competition except it comes from less airlines. This would only work towards the end of the world..... otherwise there would be a huge problem with airlines buying other carriers just for the fleet and having advantage over the others.

About the ability to lend cash - This is great for any game. How many airlines go bust because of stupid mistakes that end upo costing big? For instance, 10 planes delivered on direct pourchase programs that burn all of the cash and then C checks dont get done and marketing dropped..... If I have 300 million in cash and another airline needs 100 million to not bankrupt and I can lend with airplanes on order as collateral and 16% interest for a year... I would love to do it!

I think for a passionate pilot their day job is their hobby. That's why they're so lucky!

Nlgravity, if you're managing a Macro Hedge Fund you should have the financial means to afford an ATPL, a type rating and still have money to spare while you wait for an airline to hire you! ;)

There hasn't ever been a C152RG model.

152 has a fixed gear.

I know, I'm confused now... do you mean a C172RG or 182 RG? because those have been manufactured, unless you made a huge modification?
