IMHO it would be crazy to have a base in Albany and/or Esperance. Having said that it is essential to have crew overnighting Sunday to Friday in both these ports to provide the services to Perth that Poteroo alludes to. These would potentially minimise the weather risks that he has also instances.

What other flights fill in the schedule to provide the number of seats required while optimising crew and aircraft would need a bit of thought. I would have thought that a reasonable schedule to the two ports could be done with three aircraft (to provide some redundancy even four to take the pressure off - after all SF340's are not that expensive). ADL to PLO and ADL to WHA minus a few flights would provide a reasonable model.

But what would I know lol.
