I have a business research project to complete. Theme is start-up air operations. My group have decided we will be doing our start-up scenario based on something similar to Air Taxi's/Air Charters with a light twin aircarft. (Not a scheduled fixed route air operator).
The light twin aircraft would be likes of a Piper Chieftain, Twin Commander, etc..
What are all the different costs that you can think of that would be faced?? Like airport landing costs, terminal costs, maintenance costs, a/c operations costs etc... for light twin a/c..
Also where would I find info about a/c costs like fuel burn and insurance and other relevant stuff???
Would be great if you knew any costs associated with Piper Chieftain and Twin Commander, but dont limit to these two a/c, any light twin in the same category would be very nice.
Also for a start up operations, how many aircraft would you need to make yourself competitive and feasible.
Any general relevant comment on the theme would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
