Sorry for all the questions Thanks very much Skyseeker Lost of questions here which most operators would not like to answer as it will give away too many comercial secrets.
It's always good to see new competition in the business, but avaition is a very small, and cut throat world, I can't think of one commercial charter operator who has started up their own business without previous experience in the industry. This is usually done at a cost but perhaps if you have something of interest to them, you can trade the use of you plane Vs a financial arrangement.
Go and work for one of the established operators for a few years and you'll see what we all mean. Once that's done, since you will be under the AOC holder's responsability, it will be down to them to decide whether or not as a pilot you can operate public transport flights.
Would never be so presumtous as to agree with your comments AMEX ;o) I concur with niknak, go and get some commercial experience with another operator first.
If you do want to just jump in at the deep end (and it has been done, but rarely successfully), then you will need some good financial backers behind you - people who will not want to see a vast return on their money and who, preferably, will not want to see their investment back!
