The airline says AirTran, but the flight is operated by a 732! Also, what's with the wierd callsign?

Flying an aeroplane with only a single propeller to keep you in the air. Can you imagine that? -Capt. Picard

Don't know why that says AirTran.... that aircraft is doing a charter and is operated by Sky King. might be an old FL aircraft maybe??

Who ever it is... the Pittsburgh Penguins use that bird, and a similarly registered 732 for some road games. It used to come up as "Unknown owner" on Flightaware. Maybe now Flightaware's inner-workings see the AT in the reg and assume Airtran.

Anyways, rest assured that it is the Penguins again. They play @ the NJ Devils tomorrow night.

And I think the T in the reg. means it was recently transferred, but don't hold me to that.

When Vacation Express had a brief stint at AVP using 737-200s, they were all operated by Skyking. Some of the regs were N982UA, N737Q (often used by the penguins), N464AT, N977UA as well as a few others. As of a year or so ago when they were at AVP these were frequent visitors and all were said to belong to Skyking. Whether or not that changed, I am not 100% sure but this info was current as of about a year ago.

AT is also an old reg. # for ATA. Don't know if that helps...

I'd like to thank me for flying Me Airways...

N464AT is in fact an old Air Tran 737-200. Probably on to a new operator, but still owned by AIRTRAN AIRWAYS INC.

The bird is leased to a Charter operation called Sky King and has not flown for FL for some time. It is owned by FL because they wanted to keep a 737 on their certificate so that the 73Gs would not be a new type when they started arriving on property.

The "T" I believe, trying to remember my ATC training means it an air taxi flight, operating under a certain FAR part, like 121, or135. I'm pretty sure that is what it means, much like calling a commercial airliner " Lifeguard " when it has medical stuff onboard same idea, putting the "T" in front of the Registration. Lets the controllers know really.

Here is the history for that aircraft.....I'm confused about something...

Does flightaware list EVERY flight? Because I'm having a hard time figuring out how it got from CAK to CLE on 25.03.06.....did it take I-77?

They list every IFR flight plan, unless the plane's owner requests it blocked, supposedly. You wouldn't think they flew CAK-CLE under VFR would you?
