Internal Memo

Janet,

I can’t figure out how to send this memo I wrote to just the CSAs working in SJC, I’d appreciate if you could send this out for me thanks. Also, get IT to take a look at my computer, my email looks weird today, did we get a system upgrade? I will try out the tag function

Thanks

Bob,

Shpadoinkle West Manager

Notice to our valued customer service employees:

It has been brought to my attention from complaint forms that we’ve formed the bad habit of boarding passengers on the LAX on demand overbook flight by their airline name, such as “now boarding Uniteds”, “we’re still waiting on 3 Southwests” etc. While this is unprofessional on its own, multiple feedback forms contain expressed disapproval specifically regarding yesterday’s announcement asking “The two Virgins on Overbook Flight 1 to Los Angeles please make your way to Gate 31 immediately.”

It caused serious embarrassment to our customers, please review protocol immediately and stop referring to Virgin’s passengers as “virgins”.

Shpadoinkle Aviation Holdings End of Month Report

For the month of April, Shpadoinkle and its subsidiaries did well.

  1. FlyMAF

FlyMAF reported a company profit of $93k and $884k in assignment throughput as its chief pilot completely disobeyed company policy that bans landing anywhere other than KMAF and KHRL. FBO operations number at 100.

2. KSJC

As a major airport, KSJC has always been one of Shpadoinkle’s focus airports for developing traffic and for this month, we achieved 99 flight operations. On the bright side, our 12 month average is now… 69

3. VHSK

As our hub in east Asia, VHSK reported 86 operations – the highest in 12 months.

4. CYBC

Traffic at our Quebec hub dropped to 54.

5. Transcontinental 3000 mile ferry network

I doubt anyone used it, but its still cool to have and I’m never gonna give it up.

6. FBO sales

Many properties in the US Northeast have been liquidated due to falling into disuse. I am confident a buyer will be found for KWAY, yet RCGM remains difficult to sell without incurring massive losses.

7. Aircraft acquisition

Shpadoinkle has acquired a new DC3 (what is this – our third?). Unlike previous DC3s, we plan to keep this one, & at our Iraq hub, where we have sufficient jobs available to achieve a relatively high load factor.

8. 2 FBO networks

Activity at ETNG-LFQJ was low due to an unreliable aircraft delivery contractor. The Challenger 300 is now stationed there. Activity also dipped at our 3 lot 2 FBO networks of OERYxOEPS, FYWHxFYGB, and OEHRxOEJB.

9. YGEL

We are disappointed that the facility owners at YPPH have decided to change the configuration of their facilities. We will continue to offer flights YGEL to YPPH as I am a big fan of real life airline routes (hence the SJC-RNO/SJC-LAX connections)

10. Misc/small FBOs

They are what they are, I don’t expect them to perform well, they are cute to have.

11. Shpadionkle Aviation Holdings

I did $2.6M worth of jobs for the Shpadoinkle mainline, translating to far less in profits while frequently maxing out hours. Its not the most profitable use of my hours but I like longer flights which are a more realistic use of aircraft anyway (not that we don’t have extremely short routes

12. Performance at our rented facility hosts

Were good enough. No reason to evict us.

13. Performance at our destinations

KLAX had less pax, VMMC remained steady, YPPH activity increased (which explains it)

14. FBO income?

Negligible/loss. Shush.

Peace

 

Shpadoinkle’s Super Spending Strategy

While other aviation companies spend their capital on worthless things like aircraft and ground facilities and employees, Shpadoinkle spends all our money on supplies! And that’s the story of how we blew 2 of the 3 million v$ from a recent loan. You laugh now but you’ll be sorry when the zombie apocalypse comes and you can’t get printing paper for your FBO.

Better 14 Months Late Than Never

Forever I flew the Captain Sim Lockheed C130 Hercules (purchased during the January 2017 sale) accepting that engines would start quitting below certain fuel levels. Instead of solving the root issue of not having enough non fuel starved engines to take off, I would simply start my flight at altitude and speed and hope I had enough working engines to sustain flight.

Today I finally decided to put the vacuum behind my eyes to work and learn me some fuel crossfeed. It is ridiculously intuitive. Still, I’m feeling quite proud of myself for figuring it out without looking it up.
