Airline made of fighters?

Post by Krux » Thu Nov 17, 2016 12:43 am

This idea suddenly popped on my head.

As im not up for Combat YS anymore, but i dont want to stop flying all lovely fighter jets, i've been planning to work on a airline with not only known civilian aircraft, but also fighter aircrafts.

IRL I remember there was a asian airline that had a J-18 as a part of its fleet. Can't remember its name tho

So uh, any thoughts?

Would this be some sort of high-speed, high-price VIP airline?

This is YSFlight. You can do whatever you want!

My only word of advice/caution is that your fleet will be easily mistaken for active military aircraft and will likely be targeted. Make sure your passengers are up for a good dogfight, and be sure to keep the rules of engagement in mind.

I think it would be fun to do. The costs would be exorbitant but it could lead to canyon tourism or something like that!

Why not a E/A-6B Prowler? Seats three passengers!

A bit slower and not a fighter but I reckon it's more maneuverable than a standard private jet :lol:

Thinking of the future, i'm setting up a fleet. Some aircraft include the new T-50A and BTX-1 prototypes (they're double seated).

I'm thinking about 13 aircraft, 10 fighter jets and 3 Cargo/Civilian (Perhaps a B-52 i can adapt :lol: ) How's that sound?

I've thought the same thing! The Prowler is definetely having space in this fleet.

Can you put seating in the bomb bay of a B-2 Bomber? There's a passenger version of the B-52 somewhere (TF58?).
