Okay first things first, as much as I would love to be the pilot this isn't about that, I am no where close enough. Just trying to get a feel for the plane / money side of things to see if its worth pitching to ownership. Inputs: Company: Private Corp, 1000+ employees, low to mid 9-digit gross revenues, zero debt Home base: Flying Cloud (KFCM) suburb of the Twin Cities Top Destinations: (980nm) Lawrence, MA (KLWM) or Danvers MA (KBVY) (470nm) Detroit area Class D's (220nm) Local production plants Trip Duration: Typically 1 overnight for farther destinations, max is probably 3 overnights Same day and perhaps 2 full round trips for local production plant runs Total Seats Needed Pilot+2 is typical, Pilot+3 next most common, Pilot+4 max Local runs might be pilot + equipment only Hangar I could see the company renting or owner LLC (build/partner/sublease) Mountain Flights: None. All flights are upper midwest or heading east FIKI Yes Dispatch: Local Runs: 25 weeks per year, 2 runs a week Far trips: 30 weeks per year, 1 run per week max Thats about all I know. Is this TBM/Meridian/Pilatus territory? Of is small jet all they way? Is the dispatch and flown seats just to low to warrant owning the aircraft / hangar? For the turbo props would the Flight Level limitations and/or lengthy upwind (west bound) legs be to harsh for the passengers? Or fuel limitations? Any thoughts from others who fly these corporate routes, planes or has a company doing something similar?
