It seems like so far we have a decent mid 90's AI population with the flight plans released out there based on timetables.
However, it seems like there's quite a lot of gaps to fill in specially if we look at Europe where dozens of charter carriers started to roar here and there often standing out over traditional carriers with colorful/exotic liveries.
I plan to cover as many of those as I can such as Air tours, Caledonian Airways, Airworld, Air UK Leisure, Oasis, Centennial, Futura, TEA, Noble Air, Sultan Air, Air Europe, Noman, Air Alfa, Challengair....and well, list will grow with time. Will try my best to even include hybrid liveries.
What exactly will I do? Repaints with fictionalofficialoidish representative flight plans based on what I find on a.net given that most of this carriers are charters and might not have fixed schedules and, even if they did, those are really hard to find. At least the flight plans will depict whats on video/photographic references.
Given that those flight plans will be done based on a mix of references + criteria, users might differ somehow. What I will do is to include the raw file for those FP's for users to modify them to taste.
I was planning to come up with one big package covering everything. However, that may take a lot of time given that sometimes I have to be away of this due to other occupations. I will release them carrier by carrier to avoid that.
garko Yes, I think that one is next. There is also this one Air Atlantis. Even though that was out there up to 1993 I was not going to do it because the frames needed I already have them "occupied" on the TAP 1994 timetable I did months ago. I decided to do it just as "placeholder"
piper: Thank you for that list. I have a timetable for Citybird from I think 1998 but I think it is incomplete or has international flights only. At least it will give a starting point closer to real world when it comes to flight plans.
To wrap up Air Columbus:
Boeing 727-200 "Sterling Hybrid"
These are ready to be packed and send to avsim and make sure to start up your sims at Faro in the morning

Also, one small cool observation about the Air Columbus 733 - it's been given a crown. I can't find out where that is mapped. The engine pylons are slightly off, as well. I don't remember what the white livery looked like...
Travelsonic (too lazy to login: With FS2020 coming out in 6 days, I can't help but wonder what this will mean for the Retro AI community - in terms of bringing retro AI to FS2020, legacy support for FS9/X, etc.

chasensfo: FS2020 TECHNICALLY can take AI from other platforms(P3Dv4\5), however, just like FS2002-P3Dv3 models needed lots of conversion to work in P3Dv4 and it took years to get this many working, same will go for FS2020 as they don't use .mdl files.
