Shpadoinkle West Regroups At San Jose

After the liquidation of assets at Taylor Municipal (KTYL), Greenlee County (KCFT) and Gabbs (KGAB), the employees of Shpadoinkle West put themselves into stasis and were scattered all over the world. After 3 months laying low, the acquisition of FBO facilities at San Jose International (KSJC) triggered a beacon and awakened the slumbering giants, guiding them towards the west coast where they will unite to once again provide excellent service to visiting aircraft. So say we all.

Record Breaking Revenue MKII (Monthly Transparency Report)

We do transparency reports because we are ethical, and not because of any exhibitionist tendencies and turn ons associated with exposing our internals that may or may not exist.

In the month of April, Shpadoinkle Aviation Holdings and our hub-ops airline Shpadoinkle Airways flew a combined v$4,033,412 in flight revenue. In addition, our ground crew have provided v$54,443 in services to 3rd party operations, and FBO flight operations totaled 959 across our network.

This means that we’ve improved revenue per operation by about 30%, and that is awesome.

Though the Month of February conspired against us by arbitrarily skimping on the amount of days in the month, Shpadoinkle nevertheless achieved record profits, and flew $3.01 MILLION worth of assignments in OVER 900.0 FBO operations (and 446 flights according to FSE Reporter, putting Shpadoinkle in the top 10 groups by flights in February), a new high for Shpadoinkle second only to what is induced by substances in our contract shipping manifests:

Shpadoinkle Secures Saudi Contract

Even though the doorman never heard of us and refused to let us in, we insisted that Shpadoinkle has always considered Saudi Arabia one of our top allies, and to prove it, we showed them a friend request on facebook sent more than 30 years ago.

Moved and deeply touched by our act of friendship, Shpadoinkle was awarded contracts to serve airbases at Riyadh (OERY) and Al Jubail (OEJB) with both FBO operations and scheduled flights, marking a new milestone for Shpadoinkle as both Airports have 13000ft runways, IAPs, and this time they actually exist in FSX and X-Plane!

Goodbye KGAB

Our FBO in Gabbs, Nevada was one of Shpadoinkle’s earlier FBO acquisitions, where I’ve logged at least 50 flights. As Shpadoinkle uses the funds from the sale for ventures elsewhere, the experience provided from ownership and operation of Gabbs was invaluable, even though profit was sub-par. We hope the new owners put it to good use.

Fly with Shpadoinkluber for up to 88% effective pilot pay [cancelled]

NOTE: Planned forum-based job notification system cancelled due to lack of interest

In January 2017, Shpadoinkle Aviation Holdings flew $1.9 million worth of assignments, which translates into $1.4million in pilot earnings if you flew those assignments instead.
In the spirit of the silicon valley startup that we are, we have developed the revolutionary pilot app “Shpadoinkluber” so you can make this money, instead of us.

All sorts of aircraft are available on site at our FBOs: my 172, my Caravan, 350s, ATRs, DC3s, my Challenger 300, any aircraft you bring.

Shpadoinkluber is not in the business of hiring and dispatching: our mission is to facilitate profit for anyone who discovers and flies our routes. Just like our un-named ground based analog, our pilots are considered independent contractors. Payment is instant, you choose your own assignments and you have no obligation to fly other than the drive to accumulate wealth.

We have locations worldwide, and on average,pilots can expect to earn 70% of their assignment value, with pilot pay between $3000 and more than $12000 per flight, and earnings as high as $20000 per flight hour, depending on factors. Your pay is entirely merit based – if your profits exceed 70%, you get to keep it!

Just look at my earnings sheet from the past 2 days!

Think of Shpadoinkle as an agency: you aren’t an employee and don’t get to log your flight as a Shpadoinkle flight (until FSE can offer net profit based sharing), you don’t get to fly our aircraft for “free” (although our rentals are pretty close), and yes you can find our jobs on your own, but unless you are able to see this page, you need us to provide updates in lieu of scrolling through our FBOs one by one yourself.

In addition, participation is representation, if you don’t like something about us (other than our face), you can give us feedback and let us know where or what you would like to fly when it comes time for Shpadoinkle to expand, among other policy issues.

See you in the skies, pilot!

The Company Wide Announcement

The following is the transcript of a company wide speech made by Shpadoinkle Aviation’s CEO, that all employees were forced to watch live regardless of time zone:

When I was 5, I told my mom, I said “one day I’m gonna own two 3 lot FBOs in close vicinity to each other in a game called FSeconomy. They won’t be 3 lots due to having a million short runways, and instead they will have proper 10,000ft runways with Cat III ILS and ALSFs on every approach end, with control towers, taxiway lights, and terminal buildings. The FBOs are gonna be situated in a bustling area full of player activity and VATSIM coverage, and in places where I wouldn’t hesitate to fly in real life, and momma, one of these airfields won’t be abandoned and full of craters accordin’ to wikipedia, meaning that it will exist in both 10 year old FSX and in today’s X-Plane for all players to visit.”

That was a childhood dream, and today I am proud to announce that we’ve acquired two 3 lot FBOs within an optimal distance of each other! OK, I’ll admit we didn’t get everything we wanted. But the important thing is that the airports – OR0B and OR0D in FS9/OR31 and ORKK in FSX have long asphalt/concrete runways, are 3 lots with onsite building materials, and we have secured an indefinite high value contract to fly between the two airports so I think we can call that mission accomplished! Now we just need pilots to fly our route that pays about $14,000 in profits per hour long round trip renting system owned aircraft and regenerates daily. In addition, anyone who signs up to transfer there for a local ground position right now will receive a giant incentive package, just type your employee ID in the chat right now, no backsies…

NOTAM: Shpadoinkle Quebec

Experimenting with dru-uhhh-umroll… HUBS

When Shpadoinkle first acquired our Quebec FBOs, our initial strategy was to connect the FBOs with a single line as it was theorized this would result in minimum distance and flights, resulting in maximum profit for a round trip at a network serviced by a single aircraft (as much as the P word can be used on 2 lotters). This is technically still true, unfortunately we soon encountered problems that others who operate lines may have also experienced but are trade secrets so I can’t tell you, as such our Quebec network will undergo restructuring for a hub-and-spoke system centered around Baie-Comeau (CYBC), an airport at the north shore of the St Lawrence River with a luxurious 6000ftx150ft runway and fabulous ILS.

While transitioning to this tried and true system from the stop-by-stop line system will increase flight time and make us look like old fashioned fools instead of the silicon valley startup we are, it will increase our dynamic coverage of the area and synergy and logistics and such, and whether the less immediate benefits actualize is what we are trying to find out.

Keep your eyes peeled for the changes, and in the meantime we invite everyone to Baie-Comeau-ver to CYBC, our new Quebec hub which will be overflowing with jobs in about 5-10 days.
