Just want to chime in here -
The airlines (IRL) are responsible for their fleet management. In your example, an airline had 2 aircraft and pilots were flying them then it’s the airlines responsibility to buy more aircraft to expand the fleet when they can afford it. This means more pilots can fly the aircraft and they can employ more. You need to think realistic here, currently same person can fly any aircraft at any give time, however it’s a bit different compared to real world. If one aircraft is in use, it should be locked to other pilots. You can’t just go to an airport, expect to fly the same plane again as someone else lol. Take Emirates for example, they have currently 113 Boeing 777-300 in service. If all those are on flights and more pilots are able to fly them, they are out of luck. It would be up to Emirates to expand the fleet if the need ever arises. You get what I mean?
I personally think this is a great idea moving forward. It will add a more realistic feeling to Infinite Passengers in my opinion. It will also introduce more airline management because you’ll have to work on fleet expansion across your airline and buy more when you can afford. Only downside is… what about airlines with a large pilot base and small fleet size? It will probably take them quite a bit of time to gather income to build their fleet. I think it will impact them a lot if they have little income. Chances are those pilots probably do a lot of flights, more income will be generated and allow expansion. Perhaps even integrated modes to allow you to set it for one pilot or all?. Man this idea seems cool… could also add specific type roles for each user like “A320 rating” etc. But I guess that’s more complicated than it needs to be.
Got my support! Just think it’ll need a little more consideration though.
