    Aerosoft - OnAir: Airline Manager

    OnAir: Airline Manager is a massively multiplayer online (MMO) with a persistent world that runs in real time. As the core it is a traditional tycoon with traditional tycoon elements like a skill tree and increasing difficulty levels. Designed for flight simmers AND tycoon enthusiasts it is a project Aerosoft loves. It's the first project we done that aims at ALL of our customers! You can use it with FSX/P3D/X-Plane but also without a flight simulator!

    The user starts an airline and tries to grow it to a larger airline (or something else, see below). You start by renting a small aircraft and transporting some good. If you are a flight simmer you can fly these missions yourself, if you are not, you can hire a virtual pilot and have him fly it. Do check the weather (yes, real time weather) because taking a job and not being able to complete it can be costly!

    As you start to make money you are also gaining experience points that you can use in the skill tree to allow you to train your pilots, get a license to transport passenger and dozens of other skills. But you will also run into your first challenges. You will find that your hired pilot is on a mandatory rest or that you landed on a small airport that does not have the fuel you need. All these limitations are based on real world limits, regulations and rules. If you think you can handle full realism, select Survival mode. You will be running at full realism and will have access to a leader board based on your company's ROA (Return on Assets) ratio.

    Slowly but steadily, you will be able to buy or lease larger aircraft; thus, enabling completely new challenges. If you buy an expensive aircraft, you need to plan maintenance (and that costs a small fortune) and it needs to fly a lot. You will also need multiple crew members (including cabin crew) and you'll need to start thinking about where you'd like to place them. If they are not at their home airport you will need to pay hotels. If you need to relocate them, you can decide to send a small aircraft or buy tickets for them. Or ask one of your friends to take them.

    While the game is perfectly suited to play solitary, it pays to get friends. You are not alone in the OnAir world. You compete with all other users or you build up strategic alliances where you support each other. You can ask others to fly your missions, you can fly part of a mission to avoid getting your aircraft too far from their home base and let your friends complete it. If you got room in your aircraft and fly roughly in the right direction pick up the cargo of your friend and drop it of so he does not have to fly the whole way.

    As the system is written to give the user an incredible freedom. You can start a company that specializes in medical transports, or in flying horses around to big events. You can even not fly at all and try to make money with an FBO selling services, repairs and fuel to other companies. Or why not try to pick up all the best paying jobs and offer them to other companies for a slightly lower amount? Or buy a lot of aircraft and lease them to other companies? OnAir is the "world", what you do in it is your choice.

      Not sure this is an active post or not. I have OnAir installed and working for 6 or 7 days now. The interface if okay, but is is so slow to load. I look at where an airplane is. I then go the hire a pilot. After 15 or more seconds the pilots page pops up and I look at the stats for a pilot to be certain he/she has proper certification...another 7 to 10 seconds. By now, I have forgotten where the plane was so unable to send the new hire to the proper airport. Is this a server problem? I have good bandwith internet.
