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 ?

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.

From what my friend said, I think they have one of the best products in the US. And they are slowly expanding, which is a good sign. Mabye one day they can be a big boy.
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.

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.

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?

Their duty is to be Hooters Girls
>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
