Help a newb please
« on: October 19, 2015, 03:31:59 PM »
 So I'm confused about turn around times.
On my hawker turbo props they require 25 minutes turn around time. So I set then on my routes.  And between routes I try to give them 50 minutes between flights.  But I'm still getting a lot of delayed flights from ac rotation. 
For example what I'm doing

Indy to Chicago 25 minutes turn around Chicago indy. 50 minutes next route

Do I have to double turn around times to 50 minutes across the board or is there something I'm missing?

If the minimal turnaround is 25 minutes, I would perhaps do 35 minutes both at outstation and home base (or 40 at home base).

Is there any benefit to a longer turnaround time at home base?

Also if I'm shooting for a 30 passenger per route market

What is the best max distance before these routes aren't profitable

I'm flying the hawker turboprop should I stick to this or look towards a b737-100

Now, I'm no expert, but why would you fly such large aircrafts if you aim for 30 pax a route?

Something like the SAAB would fit better then, no?

Well I understand the Saab or Brasilia for routes up to 600-800 km. but is there a viable option for anything further than that or is my airline basically going to stay tiny

Economics aren't in your favor flying farther than that with only 30 demand...

You have the Fairchild SA227 that can take 19 pax and push 1010NM but I think you will find it hard to be very profitable if you aim for very long routes with such small pax count.

Is it worth it to just start over at a huge airport even with the heavy competition then?

Indianapolis is a large one and you are the only one based there. Just go for bigger airplanes and go for routes with more paxes.
