VAs: Start or Resurrect?

Post by YSFan » Fri Nov 06, 2015 4:24 am

I was thinking, if I want to be the boss of a VA, should I start a brand new airline or resurrect a defunct one? If I start a new one, I would need a whole new livery on all the planes and this can be very time-consuming. If I resurrect an old one, I only need to update the fleet packs. However, I will need the original CEO's permission and some would be uncontactable. So, which one should I do?

How much experience as a VA member do you have?

Some folks may think that is a negative, but I think it is a positive. You might bring a whole different experience to the world of VAs.

If you can find an unused VA and get in touch with its owner and convince them to let you bring it back, that would be good. If you can't, you should start with just one plane and go from there.

As Patrick said, as long as you got permission from the original owner then go for it! You might also be interested in a VA Quick start guide which should be ready soon. :)

YSFan, go for it, either way. You know you can start out small fleet with a few aircraft of your own if you want to start a new airline. A lot of members on here will be happy to help you build a fleet pack to start out. (Me included).

Ahh, ksh hopefully he should get back to you. If he does indeed say 'no' there's nothing stopping you starting something similar to HAVA with an orange and yellow colour scheme.

I think it's up to you to choose ;) .

Oh, come on mate, I think you have to give him some more time to answer ;) . BTW, how long does TB1 hasn't answer your email?

Yup, David is right. And actually, HAVA's livery gave me the idea to make Abel Jets' livery back then when I was thinking about making my own VA.

So, I got a PM asking me to take control of E-Fair. I agreed and sent a zip file with blank aircraft so that a new fleet pack could be made as the old one had been lost. What did I do right and what could I have done better?
