I've noticed a number of NW Airlink CRJ's (both XJ and 9E) going in and out of CKB lately (in West Virginia)

Is there a maintenance provider located there? I noticed a Air Whisky CRJ going out of there recently too.

The only scheduled service in CKB is Colgan dba United Express to IAD.

Yes, there is a facility there for Bombardier aircraft at CKB -- the West Virginia Air Center.

Im not sure if their is a maintenance base there or not. But, there are three daily flights to CKB. Weird thing is that NWA.com cant seem to find anything.

Im sure someone else on here has some more info. But this is all that I could find.

Only reason I noticed it was that on the flight information displays in DTW tonight it listed an Arrival from CKB so I looked it up on Flightware and noticed the following.

I just found it interesting that there were a number of CRJ's in and out of CKB over the past week or more.

CKB is not a NW destination.

They go there for a heavy mx check. I'm not sure what one, but I have flown 3 planes there myself from MSP. We have a contractor there who oversees all of our mx. Last time I was there, there were 3-4 Indy Air CRJ's getting prepped for a trip to a new home in the Middle East.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

No since they've been in and out of there for a while.

Also ASA, AirWhisky, and USA3000 have a/c going in and out of there. Must be maintenance.

They do send planes there for MTX. They do this for unscheduled MTX as well (depending on the problem) as we have had at least one plane from my city go straight to CKB for repair

OH flew there for two years with one daily CRJ from CVG. The maintenance center had everything to do with the flight.

Thanks for the info.

Its interesting that it showed up like a normal flight on the gate displays.

Also, I noticed that the 9E CRJ that was involved in the collision with the DL tug a few weeks ago is still sitting over by the NW hanger on the west side of 4R/22L. Doesn't appear to be going anywhere fast.

I'll have to see if I can find the pictures of CKB. I traveled there quite a few times and would routinely see DL painted CRJs and also some Midwest painted CRJs down there.

Pratt also has a large engine plant too.

I wonder if the USA3000 was a charter for WVU.

Yeah, that probably was a fan charter to CLT for the bowl game. The team flew down yesterday on DL from PIT, IINM. They've been flying DL for over five years now, usually widebodies for the New Year's Day games.

As has been mentioned, WVAC is located on the airport, and they do heavy mx for CRJ's, so a lot of companies send CRJ's there for heavy checks. AWAC will still send one there on occasion for unscheduled repairs, but for the most part, AWAC switched vendors, and is now using ExcelTech in YUL for most of the Heavy MX.

AFAIK, they don't do paint jobs at the airport. GLH is a common destination for new paint.

I think the gate displays might be run off the same system as the OTZERO, which would explain it. When the Vikings were playing Jacksonville a few weeks ago, the inbound charter from JAX was showing up as well.

CKB was sponsoring some chartered daytrips to New York ( I think ) in an attempt to get their boardings above 10,000 this year to make them elgible for some more money.

It seems whenever a ferry, repositioning, or charter flight departs or arrives at a gate in the terminal that is shows up on the gate displays.

In Oct, the NW A320 charter for the U of M football team headed to SCE was listed on the gate displays.

A few weeks ago I was in MSP, and misconnected to the last scheduled DTW flight of the day. There was a repo flight at 2am to DTW that was listed on the gate displays, unfortunetely they weren't taking any pax.

I'd never thought of that! How odd...

In my city, the monitors are somehow tied to the OAG. No idea how that works, but the Airport staff made quite an effort to trumpet that to all of us.

We still change the gates & status, BTW...
