Rumour has it that Canadian North has acquired two more F100's, in addition to the two they presently operate.

Anyone out there that can confirm this, and perhaps provide which frames have been leased/purchased?

Cheers...

I have heard this also,I can find out for you soon.A friend of mine is Cpt on the F-100 for 5T.I believe they want to free up some of the 732's as they plan to operate YMM-YHZ and YMM-YYT as charters more this summer as part of the CNRL contract.


Guess what???I dont like you either...

CP744....

I was out at YYC on Sunday. I noted over by the maintainence hangars a Canadian North Dash 8, one of their Fokker 100's, and a former US Airways Fokker 100. Could that be one of the aircraft involved?

Perhaps... However I think I have seen that F100 in YYC for a few years..... I could be wrong.

The rumour is the F100's will be operating for CNRL to the East. The B732 don't have the legs to fly YQM to HZP, nor do the F100's, with a full load.

Cheers

This frame c/n 11398 is owned by Aravco since July 2005 and therefor not a likely candidate.

Think it is converted to VIP.

Due to the different layout an ex US-Air frame is not likely anyway.
Although I have not heard a word yet I would not be surprised with Canadian North's expansion plans.
Guess any addition will come from TAM.



The truth lives in one’s mind, it doesn’t really exist

Currently the aircraft that have done the charters to the east usually stop for fuel enroute.This is why 5T was looking at the 733 for the slightly better range,although I am not sure if they are still pursuing this.

11398 has been ferried to NWI a year ago:

There are a couple of Aravco/Platinum Air stored at NWI and they are for sale. I was told that there was some activity noted around them. So who knows they might end up in Canada.
The only Aravco/Platinum Air Fokker 100 still stored at YYC is 11283/N855US
in exUS c/s but that one is in a hrrible condition:
