FSE and PE make for a powerful combination

Not necessarily. I make all the jobs public so that everyone had a chance to fly them. Look for jobs for HFS SoCal Ops.

What you may be missing is that YOU have to select the jobs and rent an airplane. THEN on the "My Flight" page, there's a link that is under, "If you want to fly this flight for a group, select its name". The available groups that you are a member of will be below.

One easy way to find specific jobs is to go to myflightroute.com, click on "FSEconomy job search".

http://www.myflightroute.com/fseinput.php?

Type in "HFS SoCal Op" into the "Cargo Name Includes:" field.

http://www.myflightroute.com/fsequery.p ... S+SoCal+Op

This will bring up a full list of all FSE jobs containing the search string. Click on the columns to sort by FROM or destination. When you have added the jobs to "my flight" and rented an aircraft, then you will be able to click on the group assignment.

Another method is to use the FSE Airports page to search for the aircraft type that you are interested in flying. Use the options to search a radius from a specific field. This will give you a list of airports with the plane available for rent. Go to the airport and see what jobs are available.

BonanzaDude, may want to consider standardizing on the job template. Searching on "HFS SoCal Op" verses "HFS SoCal Ops" gives a very different list.

John, you have an amazing network. I've wanted to utilize some of your fields such as SFO, LAS and PSP but the job counts to individual airports are relatively low. Are you open to considering not having each airport point at so many other airports?

That way, it would be possible to fly a 15-18 seater, full of jobs (or close to it) and be able to enjoy those runs while still flying on FSE.

You've said in the past that you fly a lot of jobs in Africa and other parts of the world to make your money and then use the FBOs here for fun, but for those that only want to fly within the PE coverage area, it would be great to have some solid money making opportunities, too.

BonanzaDude,

I'm trying to figure out if there has been a recent change in Hawkey Flight Services. I have been using Palm Springs (KPSP) as a destination for Hansen (11CL). I switched to KPSP because it created a slightly longer flight and it seemed better to use share ground crew fees with a PE owned FBO.

Recently it seems that the 5+ PAX jobs in/out of KPSP have all but dried up. Further the jobs going to KUDD have also dried up (note KUDD is currently showing closed). I'm finding it much harder to find and fly full 5 or 10 PAX loads into and back of KPSP.

The PAX counts seem much higher going to Crystal (L01) and Agua Dulce (L70). IE it's not hard to fill the 10 PAX PC12 going to L01 & L70 out of KONT.

I guess I was trying to find out what the plans are for KONT and KUDD. Further if there has been changes made that explain what I'm seeing or if this is just the "random" factor of FSE operations.

Pointing Hansen (11CL) to 46CA creates flights that are just a little too long for me to fly except on the weekends. So I would rather point to a slightly closer destination. Without the PAX counts going to KPSP, I will have to revert back to KONT to keep my planes full.

Thanks for any insight.

Supplying KUDD now. I haven't changed anything so I am guessing its random FSE factors.

The following will be closed once they run out of supplies unless someone wants them. I want to keep them in PE hands.

L73 (358 days of supplies)
L88 (needs supplies)
CA42 (needs supplies)
