airigami's growth continues at a cracking pace

Welcome to the third issue of the Airigami Newsletter, where we attempt to keep you up to date with what is happening in the world of Airigami.

This month has been another one of massive growth in the Airigami range of models. We have added 81 new models to the collection, including the first ever submission by an Airigami user, an Avianca Colombia MD-80. To that end, we have created a new terminal to showcase the talents of Airigami users, at Satellite Terminal 1. We also this month began accepting new model orders from Airigami users, to such an extent that there is now quite a backlog of requested aircraft!

Also due to orders from our users, we have expedited the development of the Aerospatiale-BAC Concorde, which will be formally released this month. Similarly, we have also brought forward the release of our huge regional aircraft fleet, including both jets and props. Whilst the props are still under development, we are confident that they will become the first Airigami aircraft to feature moving parts.

In another area of Airigami development, we are pleased to advise our users that we have decided to diversify our operations to include airport accessories. During the coming weeks, we will continue to develop airport ground foils, airport buildings and accessories such as air bridges, the latter of which will also feature moving parts including articulation, adjustable height and extension-retraction capabilities.

On the operational side of things, Airigami was hit hard during the middle of this month by a massive increase in use. This resulted in the site being unavailable for many hours at a time. In response, we have remodeled the site such that it is now able to withstand much more bandwidth usage than before by way of more efficient distribution of users from the entry point. On top of this, we are also developing mirror sites, which will be available for use should the main site experience bandwidth time-outs in future. The mirror sites will also be available independently from the main site, at http://airigami.bravepages.com (our original address, way back when, before we shifted to Angelfire) and http://airigami.netfirms.com. Please be advised that we do not anticipate that these mirror sites will be up and running for another couple of weeks. We have also redeveloped our News page, which now features the latest news regarding the website. We encourage our users to visit our news page regularly to keep up to date with events at Airigami.

I hope that Airigami continues to bring as much joy to others as it does to me.

James Messner, Airigami founder and designer

this month…

The great expansion - 81 new models, including large fleets from Aer Lingus, Air France, British Airways, Delta Air Lines, Lufthansa, Northwest Airlines, SAS Scandinavian Airlines and Virgin Blue.

The release of Airigami designs will be relatively random, however we welcome any requests from Airigami users who would like to see a particular aircraft or airline featured on Airigami. Simply e-mail us or go to our website and fill in the appropriate form describing what airline and/or aircraft you would like.

The Airigami concept, designs, pictures, content and website are all Copyright © James Messner 2002.

This does not mean that people are prohibited from using the blank templates and making their own designs. Just don’t claim it was your idea – and don’t profit from it. That would make you a bad person. We keenly await to be e-mailed designs created by Airigami users, and we also much anticipate receiving photos of fully constructed Airigami aircraft. We would like to feature such designs and pictures on our website.
