Does FedEx still have the smaller Cessna 208As flying around? Who's flying them, and what are their regs?

Thanks!

Yep, there are two that are based out of YVR that fly Monday - Friday. Can't remember the regies but I'll take a look next time I'm out there.

MKE gets nightly FedEx feeder C208s. About 7 or 8 fly in every night. Operated by CSA Air Inc. http://www.airt.net/csa.html

At West Air we have both the 208/A and the 208/B. We have been on an update program where we swap the 600hp pt6 on the 208/A for a 675hp used on the 208/B. We only have three planes remaining in the fleet awaiting conversion and then we will be finish! Big grin  Big grin

Hmmm are you the same guy from over at AIG? Nice to see you on here (I'm KregAXN over there)! Big grin

Anyway, this is what I could come up with, I'm not sure if it's of much help...

So I take it the 208A and 208B are different in powerplant and not length?

Haven't seen her in awhile, but Corporate Air's FedEx operation in GFK has one, or at least used to have one of the smaller birds. We haven't had the need to Ad-Hoc more than 1 or 2 destinations in a long time which may be why I haven't seen it. If I see her in the next few days, I'll try to get a reg for ya!

There are a few here in HNL. Only two in the database though operated by Corporate Air and though upon further look they are 208B's, not A's. Sorry already if it veered off topic.

I believe there are only 10 C208As amongst the huge fleet of C208Bs.

N799FE, N800FE, N801FE, N812FE, N819FE, N827FE, N830FE, N832FE, N833FE, N835FE.

Some were operated in Canada and Ireland, but now all are in the US.

According to the info I have, they are distributed as follows:

Corporate Air = 4
Mountain Air Cargo = 2
CSA Air = 1
Wiggins = 1
Empire Airlines = 1
Baron Aviation = 1

N812FE is the bird in GFK...but according to one of the Feeder pilots, it looks like they are planning on getting rid of her. Apparently, the aircraft is mainly used only for Mx flights and has only flown 5 times in the past 2 months.

btw, I beleive 815FE is also a 208A

There isn't a current N815FE:
http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry/NNumSQL.asp?NNumbertxt=815FE

It appears there was a C208A registered N815FE (#00038) but it was exported to Brazil in 1991. It is now PT-OGT of Abaete.

Fedex reserved the registration in Aug 08 but, as yet, it doesn't seem to be allocated to an airframe.
