Recommended Posts

Welcome to my diary. I will be using PMDG DC-6B.

Originally, I wanted to make relatively short segments around 2 hours however after some thinking and current fuel prices, the decision is to fly full legs. So my first leg will be EGLC-HEPS.

I will also fly on VATSIM and will add in comments -'AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHT DAYS event' for driving more interest.

Captain's log: First segment- EGLC-HEPS 24/12/2021 

-------------------------------------------------------

We will be departing London City airport RWY09. Wet takeoff power will be required due higher that 87k LBS weight. Flight level 130 all way towards Port Said. Weather should be calm with some rain clouds over our starboard side.

Captain's log: 10/01/2022

-------------------------------

After running out of money, I decided to open my own air transport company on OnAir. After initial rent of R44, then moving to H145 Airbus helicopter, I finally figured out that helicopters are not good way to make money and rented some Kodiak 100, which allowed me then to move into CJ4 with fully executive seats, which was great money maker:

Finally, after earning to rent DC-6, I went back to Port Said, fill up cargo and passenger and did a first segment for my flight to Mumbai - HEPS->OHTT

Good money:

The take off from HEPS and flight to OTHH were uneventful:

Captain's log: 10/01/2022 OTHH -> VANY

-------------------------------

We flew additional segment on our way from Port Said to Mumbai - OHTT->VANY. The flight was smooth, picked up full of cargo and passengers in small island OTUI. Very nice profit :)

While waiting for the next leg in Calcutta, decided to do another OnAir job to Kathmandu.

Tomorrow will rent Kodiak and will take some tourists to Lukla. May be also will do another DC-6 run to Paro Buthan airport.

Too bad Twin Otter is not available yet :(
