Two things about Hooter's Air

1)always wondered if the stweardesses of hooters' air were like the waitresses in the restaurants. Big breats and all models. Since its part of hooter's image I guess its the case.
2)I've seen a picture of females in the cockpit. do they have fermale pilots ?

they are really PACE airlines under subcontract. They have "regular" FA's and 2 "Hooters girls" on each flight

I wouldn't exactly call it subcontract since Pace Airlines is owned by Hooters Air Inc., but for all practical and regulatory purposes it is a wet lease operation.

Pace is not owned by hooters Air. Pace is owned by Hooters of America which also owns Hooters Air.

There are numerous female pilots for Pace but, the hooters girls are in addition to the regular 2 pilots and 3 flight attendants.

A Ramper who worked a Hooters Air 73-2 flight remarked that it was the most clean, nice 73's he as ever worked. I think PACE's 200 flying for Hooters is a late model with the "dash 17" motors and the "300" auto pilot / mode control panel.

Sounds like a tight ride!

Yes. At least one. Aileen Watkins was a 737 Captain with PACE, but she took a job recently as a 747-400 F/O with Atlas. She flew with a female F/O while she was there but I don't know her name. Presumably the F/O is still with PACE.

I agree and disagree with that. I do think that Hooters Air has the potential of expanding and gaining more pax and whatnot; but at the same time familys probobly will not want to fly because of the "Hooters Girls" and whatnot. But it really depends on the family and alot of different variables.

We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Look at the shadow of the airplane, it was taken around noon, as the shadow is directly underneath the corresponding part. Therefore, the shadows of the people would be very tiny (if visible) or directly around their feet.

"Big breats and all models."

Clearly you have never been to a Hooters. I always get the under-equipped one that fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

RootsAir, Hooters is based out of the United States and has their "hub" of sorts at Myrtle Beach, SC. They market themselves as a purely leisure airline.

Pace Airlines, who is owned by Hooters of America (who owns Hooters Air) is also based out of the United States in Winston-Salem, NC with some of their fleet at different bases throughout the country.

Faith Rosenberg. She was based at EWR for the winter when we took the 757 off the route.

You would be surprised at the number of families that eat at Hooters restaurants. Certainly, they are outnumbered by jocks, college boys, NASCAR fans, and other primarily male groups, but families in the restaurants are not scarce.

I'm curious to know if they've reconsidered serving their hot wings on the planes. When Hooters Air launched they stated they would NOT serve wings inflight because they could not guarantee the quality of the product. Now, however, you can find their hot wings in the frozen food section of the grocer.

I would suspect that Hooters Air will be a successful niche player. They have a marketing angle that sets them apart from other carriers, and competitive pricing. Nothing wrong with that.

You also have to respect the entrepreneurial spirit of the Hooters' president. He got ticked off because the legacy carrier pulled out of Myrtle Beach, so he "bought" himself an airline.

So in addition to 2 pilots, 3 regular FAs, we have 2 hooters girls onboard. My question is what's the duty for the 2 hooters girls ? and do they serve food onboard and if they do, do they have the same kinds of food at the restaurants?
thanks.

Their duty is to be Hooters Girls Big grin

>do they have the same kinds of food at the restaurants?<

Like said, they have not up to this point, but the wings may make it on now due to the new heat and serve wings available in stores. Hooters Air is actually, in many ways, an LCC in its approach and offers really good walk up fares. The whole point of the airline was to capitalize on Hooters brand name to promote the owner's golf resorts in MYR and bring in tourists that way. Why they are going for ETOPS, I have no idea but Hawaii has been rumored if only because they did the proving flights there

The girls sell merchandise and help with food service.

We got the ETOPS Cert. Because what kind of a charter operator would we be with it.

We serve Chicken raps or Buffalo Chicken sandwiches (depending on day and direction of your flight. Morning flights are breakfast with either sausage biscuits or omelets.
