How much life is left on these F100s? Will they outlast the F28s that Horizon had (in terms of operating years)?

Well, if its any indication, some of Canadian Regional's F28s were around 30 years old when they were retired in 2002.

Assuming these are ex AA aircraft they were built between 1990-1993. They are relatively new. I suspect at LEAST 10 years before they even need to consider a replacement. Of course this is all dependent on cycles flown and relative efficiency against other aircraft in the market and whether Jetsgo can afford or wants to replace them based on a lot of other factors like current route system etc.
