who is our central fleet manager?
We have some planes in the hangar with only a few flight hours after years, eg. one Concorde, ATR72 etc. On the other hand there is no Saab340, TBM900, PC12, which are often used on IVAO and X-Plane.
Just a quick heads up for X-Plane simmers: there's a Concorde and an ATR 72 under development - Concorde is done by Colimata, and the ATR by Milviz. So that gap should soon be filled...
As for TBM & PC-12 - they're rather for private business charter, not airline operation. I know we even have a C172 in the fleet (in an attempt to hook up with FSE), but as far as I can see these small GAs aren*t used a lot. Though I don't deny the HotStart TBM900 is a superb model and deserves a good share of an X-Plane sim pilot's flight time.
If you would have another weekend off and the wishlist is still open - What about B787-800/-900 as a (partial) replacement for B767-300 (I am losing believe that an update for P3Dv4 is going to come in the near future). Some more DHC8-Q400 would be nice, too.
As of Today, we have two new family members in our fleet. The Boeing B787-9 with a seating capacity for 290 passengers in a two-class configuration of 40 business class seats and 250 economy class seats. Both aircraft will be based in Cologne-Bonn (EDDK).
We have secured options for further aircraft of this type from Boeing.
