RED Virtual Airlines - Pilot Survey - Jan 2019
Thank you to those that have already completed the Survey. For those yet to participate, it will only take a few minutes. Your views are important to us.
The RED feedback Survey will remain open for a further period to allow for stragglers. However it is useful to share some of the results currently trending.
Another interesting suggestion was for a seaplane to be added to our fleet. Admin staff have had this option on the back burner for some time It is a more complex ask that it first seems. However given the increased interest from members it is appropriate to invite discussion on the practicalities.
Ansett operated flights between Rose Bay Water airport and Lord Howe Island until 1974. However Rose Bay nor its close neighbour, Palm Beach Water Airport are recognised in FSX. Indeed, FSX does not list any water airports in Australia or New Zealand. This begs the question, as to where the seaplane would be parked.
Its parking location influences the routes it might fly and the terrain on which it might have to land. So, should the seaplane also have wheels or skids and do we want an old aircraft or more modern.

Limited routes between capital cities on the eastern seaboard have been created along with flights between Townsville and Cairns. RED-167 is currently parked at Melbourne Airport (YMML).
