I have two questions: the first is: what does the abbreviation "GmH" stand for when an aircraft leasing company asks for that?
Secondly, I humbly ask for help - is anyone aware of a generic formuale to calculate the cycle ratio of the following aircraft below?
1 x McDonnel Douglas DC- 9 30 F
1 x B737-200F
Two x A300-600F
Now for each aircraft, the usage of it is as follows:
1 x B737-200F. 4 flights per week out of 7, 2 flights in a day which means 32 cycles in a month yeilding 384 cycles in a year.
4 flights in a week out of 7. (6 cycles for this trip). Total cycles: 288
5 flights out of 7 therefore 15 cycles making 180 cycles per month.
1 x DC 9-30F
4 flights per week out of 7, flying twice a day makes 24 cycles per month thus giving 288 cycles per year.
The ratio part of it (since I only have interger values) my question is would I express the interger value as a percentage over the number of days in a year? For example the DC 9-30F would mean 288 divided by 360 days in a year?
I'm lost here, however, any suggestions would do.
Thank you reading.
