West Air Industries (Pac Valley) operates them between Imperial Valley and San Diego.

West Air Industries also operate them, from Las Vegas to St. George, UT and also Cedar City.
They also have route networks from Oakland to Monterrey, Fresno, Visalia and Sonoma County Airport.
Out of Ontario, there is flights to Meadows Field, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, Inyokern, LAX.
Sacramento Flights are from Century City, Murray Field, Redding, Chico Municipal, Ukiah Municipal.

Apart from West Air which only operates the C208 Caravans, could someone also please add what other aircraft painted in FX colours that these compaines use, if there aren't too many, along with any other not listed that operate as FX feeder networks.

I love this thread. Can anyone give an example of a Fedex feeder route and type of equipment used?
I remember one time I was in MGW and the airport was paging the Fedex Caravan pilot because he was nowhere to be found for his 7 pm departure for PIT. Any other Fedex feeder routes around the world?
Thanks for the data.

Damn, thought I had got them all ! Thanks Mike for the extra destination from ONT, remember seeing these little C208's on a trip to Vegas a few years ago and was intrigued into where they went. When you come from a city that see's 1 FX MD-11 a day it was an eye opening experience to see the diverse FX fleet in different airports I went to. So thanks to websites like flightaware I became fairly familiar with where the little planes flew to !
