Hey everyone, you may know me as that crazy guy with all the Soviet planes that just won't die in DoTM or the first person to ever launch two LET products in JA. Anyway, I had a very specific airport in mind for this round and had it all planned out how I'd be a real contender in this my first MT scenario. Well, of course it got taken and there are too few slots for competition. So instead, I am going ahead with another insane thing I always wanted to try.
Basing in Tahiti.
French Polynesia boasts more than 20 airports most of which are actually worth flying small turboprops to. However if you want to fly outside the country, the only international destination within 1000 miles is the Cook Islands which could need a tech stop (provided you can find somewhere else to land besides the ocean) for many smaller planes. Within 2500 miles you finally start running into New Zealand, Hawaii and neighboring island nations but there really isn't any demand. Once you run out of turboprop routes, the only road to expansion is in the insanely-ultra-long-haul market. You're looking at 5,000 mile flights to the US or 9,000 mile flights to Europe. Basically, it's never going to happen.
I did a little toying around here in the recent test game and I think I can make a profitable company even if I never get off this rock. There's a little 3 turboprop operation in DoTM I highly admire and most of my time and effort is still locked up by the other two games.
