Hello all!

I hope someone can some shed light on something for me.

If you look at:


There is supposedly a Provincetown-Boston Airline flight that operated between Tampa and Charleston, SC using a Cessna. The flight was scheduled for one hour-length in duraction.

Did this flight exist and COULD it have existed?

There is no service listed in the return direction.

There are no other mentions of CHS in the PBA flight itineraries section, just this lone PT 1036 MIA-APF-TPA-CHS.

Furthermore, correct me if i am wrong, but I would imagine CHS-TPA air time would be greater than one hour.

I don't think this was an actual flight or a mistype. From looking at the last schedule (12/12/84 & 1/15/85) when PT flew to CHS there was no nonstop from TPA to CHS. However, there was a 1-stop via JAX and it was PT 1038 which left at 7:20p and arrived at 10:10p. PT 1036 only ran from MIA-APF-TPA and ended.

This is as accurate as I can tell from my PT schedule collection, but I can add that this time period was very turbulent for PBA. They got grounded in 11/84 then had a crash in 12/84 and also filed bankruptcy thereafter so there was, I am sure, a lot of schedule changes that did not show up in their paper schedule. Also, the 2/1/85 schedule shows no service to CHS as it was dropped after bankruptcy along with a few other cities.

35 years of American Trans Air/ATA Airlines, 1973-2008. A great little airline that will not be soon forgotten.
