Still in the hangar getting its overhaul, most of the body work is done except for the titles & US flag on the tail (very top). The plane with the new colors is N79FC, the same one we leased to another airline for a long time and they left it in such bad shape we had to almost rebuild the plane from the ground up ...

Present scheme:



And soon it will look like this (although the other planes will have grey wings)







Also, 2 new cities are joining the FCA network in the Fall of 2004.

(Can you tell which airline our owner used to fly for???)

The next generation of aircraft is just around the corner!

Nah! It is very small aircraft for me and I dislike them either.

Yes, we both operate the Cessna 402C..

(although Cape Air is sending some ATR-42s out to Guam)

The new paint job is not done yet...it will have FCA on the tail like the old ones and website along the top. N79FC is currently in a 6 seat configuration for now, but the others are in a 9 seat config.

Hey SegmentKing, that aircraft N79FC, is that the aircraft that your company got from up here in Canada? If it is, I used to work on that aircraft. I really liked that 6 passenger seating for making it easy for inspections. Never had any real problems with the aircraft, except for the flap system, the tracks always got stuff in them and would jam, and new pilot problems where they would keep burning the tires off of it. Anyway, I hope that it is the aircraft that was purchased from Athabaska Airways. ex registation C-FFCH.

Regards

Miles

I am betting on GNV and maybe SRQ or PBI?

Why Scotty? Their employees not violate company rules for you?

No comment on the cities.. How about GNV and MLB... I know they would not do something that might be profitable like FPO-PBI.

Will they be competing with TAB Express?

TAB Express is only a charter airline, not scheduled. There are only a handful of airlines with both *scheduled* US Authority & Bahamian Authority --

) Chalks International
) American Eagle
) Gulfstream/Co Connection
) Island Express
) Florida Coastal
) Air Midwest/US Express

All the others are strictly charters, which the FAA limits operations to only 4 times per week.

In regards to PBI-FPO, the route is a gold mine, but not during the Fall. Even Gulfstream cuts back drasticly in September, so are focusing on markets that will break even or possibly throw some cash in our pockets starting September 2004. Focus will remain on Key West growth in Oct/Nov, with the Bahamas taking presidence starting in April. Although we do have authorities to fly to Freeport from both Ft. Lauderdale & West Palm Beach...
