Your Opinion Matters...
June 24, 2018, 05:02:31 pm
We need your help to decided which aircraft you would like to see us use in a new upcoming project that is being worked on. I can't reveal anymore information about this project right now but I can say that it will be a series of short hop regional flights...

The result of this vote will decide which aircraft we ultimately use.

You have a maximum of 1 votes each! 

Happy Voting  (pilot) 8)

Definitely the Dash-8. There's a study-level Dash-8 as opposed to the Wilco.

They aren't options ;)

We try not to think in "TFDi" and "Carenado". Having nice models at hand is a part of the considerations but by far not the whole thing.
There are tons of airlines that fly everything just because a model has been released. That's fine, but it's not the way Metro operates.

Oh and by the way, the Q400 is clearly my first choice. Especially for this particular project ;)

Yes I'm aware of what Metroair does.  Just was throwing it out there.  Since its a "project" thought there might be some thinking outside the box for regionals like FlyUK's Topa and Nordic.

Q400 is the best model etc but E145 is really fun to fly.

Is the E145v2 even available for P3D v4 yet?

Valid thought, but I'm afraid we're not big enough for multiple airlines yet. Our project has to happen within the realm of Metro and it's fleet.

No there's not.

That'd be great news, however I can't find anything about that.
Could you give us some more info?

The 175 seems available for v4 now  :)

Q400 the whole way. The ERJ-145 from Wilco isn't my favorite.

I thought i saw it on their website but it surely wasn't $17 unless they just started a sale.  They haven't sent it to any of their other retailers.

A little info on the "Project" would help make a decision, otherwise this is basically a "whats your favorite of the two" poll.

I am told it would be plenty of short hop flights between 75 nmiles and 250 nmiles. 

I am guessing it is either island hopping within Caribbean or inter-Alaska flights or new division serving three Cape Cod airports from various major Northeast and mid-South airports.

Regards,

Aharon

I see that 35 Metro Air pilots are voting in the aircraft choice poll.  Makes me wonder how come 35 Metro pilots are not participating in any Metro Air events    Inquiring minds want to know  :) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D (=D (=D (=D (=D (=D (=D

And please vote for E145s.

Thank you to everyone who voted! The winner as you can see is the E145. I think when you see what we have planned you’ll agree it’s the best choice! Will have some more news about this planned project in a few weeks time. For now Craig has to get painting!!!
