fleet of only BAE Systems Avro 146-RJ85A and base out of Orlando. My first
destinationes would be:

In current market conditions, I would not have good hope for any new airline unless they had alot of cash, operated very economical aircraft and operated profit generating routes. Not too sure if the 145/RJ85 is the most economical..............plus theres probably a fair bit of competiton on those routeS?

Nashville = BNA
Mx and spares may be a bit more challenging than other options due to your geographic location. Other than that, the 146-200/RJ85 are workhorse aircraft built in the "over-engineered" fashion of yesteryear. Your aircraft certainly wouldn't give too many problems.

Ahhh, fantasies fantasies... Why the BAe 146? Why would you select those routes? Do you have insight into the market potential to those respective cities from MCO? Perhaps it could fly as a virtual airline . Also, you might wanna think of renaming it lol. None of those routes live up to the namesake. Maybe IntraCon? haha cheers,

You know, I have been tempted to start a thread about what you would do if you had your own airline. I would hub mine in BOS! I don't know if MCO has that much O&D unless you are connecting pax. If you had wanted to expand it across the country then MCO would not make a good hub.
ATL - Delta and AirTran competition.. Ohh.. that's gonna be ROUGH
BTR - You might can charge higher fares on that one..
MSY - Southwest on that one.. Ohh.. that's gonna hurt BAD
SAT - Southwest on that one.. Ohh.. it's gonna hemorrage
BNA - Southwest on that one.. See the running theme?
I will say, I do wish you luck.. perhaps you can make it.. but your fare structure is gonna have to be pretty significant to cover your costs..

Dump the 146's way too expensive, change the name to Inter-State-Air, (ISA) look for some used B717 or A318's. Then look for some good long routes, if you have to have MCO as a home base, what about MCO/YVR/YYC/SEA/PDX the 318's will do easy.
Get good employess , treat them right and treat your customers as humans with a brain..of course as with all things you'd have to make a few concessions.
