How do you make your own airline?

Please explain in simple terms because i don't know how to do many things on the computer.


Also how do you paint your own livery?

All help is appreciated.

Making your own virtual airline is as simple as getting your own website. Preferably a professional one, but if you are unable to pay for a pro website editor, free websites can work also (like mine Wink).

However, you had better know what you're getting into before you're in over your head. There's more to running a virtual airline than just picking some HUBs, painting some planes, and creating routes. It's almost like you're volunteering for a part-time job, lol. It's the same thing as running a real airline, except without the factor of money (unless of course you want to add that element to keep it as real as possible).



As far as painting planes goes, it's not easy. When I first started doing repaints I thought it would be a hell of a lot easier than it actually is. To be honest, it's actually quite a pain. The only fun part is designing your own livery. If you don't have hours and hours of time to devote to this, get someone else to paint your fleet for you. I'm sure there's plenty of people willing to do so. If not, find a tutorial on repainting planes, there's plenty out there. Wink

However, the one thing is, once you get the hang of it, you're addicted to repainting, lol. Whether you like it or not, you just get one idea after another and you just want to keep painting planes lol.
