Which one is better indicator?
« on: October 28, 2012, 12:13:57 PM »
I am wondering which one is better indicator for airplane performance? "Financial overview" or "financial overview, weekly estimate"? Because often there are significant difference between two of them.

Thanks in advance.

Best indicator is a week you have not sold/purchased/leased any aircraft or slots, payed back loan or payed taxes and with a normal amount of C-Checks but with no D-Checks.

You can do math on some things, like the costs of a D-Check to use a week with one in it and still get a useful result.



The result of such a "clean" week is where your company is at the moment.


Mostly these weeks are created while you sleep, so you don't have to prepare in a special way for them. Just play your game and do whatever you want while you are awake and when you sleep/work without AWS access you'll see it at least after two or three nights.

I“ll try to answer your question:
Financial overview are the data of the past performance with hard coded data.
The estimate is a try to predict the future, based on just one day performance, so sums differ according to daily changing performance.
It may show you a tendency, especially when aircraft is new and RI is evolving.
To really have an idea if aircraft is a winner, you will have to break down some company costs (like c-checks,personal,marketing) to weekly/per aircraft figures and add them on the costs already deducted.

I am thinking to try the foolowing - do all C Checks on one month, and be a rich guy the remaining 11 month!
then not prolong the marketing campaings.
then decrase salary for my personell.
keep the old aircraft on the ground, no maitanance, no scraing, or on selling market (who will buy it anyway???)

aaand - voilą - i get the beast Income Statement in entire AWS!
