Re: Your own Airline?

What models are you using?



The BAe146 is the BAe from the Northwest airlines fleet section of Simairline

The EMB-120 is the Skywest airline EMB from the Delta page.

I just use whatever aircraft I have of the type laying around.


Now... How do I repaint them?

Re: Your own Airline?

A quick question.


I have flown Rocky Mountain air since 06' but using paint kits that where blank. Is there a good EMB-120 and BAe146 paint kit out there and what can I use to repaint them? And how do I repaint them.




P.S. Is there a good CRJ-200 paint kit

Re: Your own Airline?

To prevent what aaron was talking about

This is NOT a thread for VA's this is for airlines you run on your own and fly on your own. A.k.a. Rocky mountain air has no and will have no website, I just fly it in my own time.

Re: FS Time Calculations Always Wrong

Well seeing as NRT-HKG isn't far over 3 hours anyway, that would be quite obvious that you were early. As long as your speeds are fine and you have no delays, then you should know if you'll be late or early. Also, when you close FS, check the time that the logbook accounts for. It doesn't care abou...

Re: X-jet to San Diego

I'm getting bored.

Yesterday and today we just stay home... I woke up at 1 in the afternoon both days.

Well this trend should continue until Friday at minimum. I just found out that nothing except CFS3 works on the laptop from the Back-up hard-drive. So I can't fly :x

Re: X-jet to San Diego

WOW! Today was BUSY! I got there at 8:30, helped Bruce put the track cleaner together. Bruce was saying how the equipment the kids where running tracked dirt all over the track, which is why we had to clean it 2 days in a row. The day started slow, the museum wouldn't open until 11AM. But by 12 it w...

Tonight I get to ride the Belmont Roller Coaster! YES! I hope when they renivated the ride they didn't take away my favorite part- the tall corner where you could feel the track shift beneath you.
