Glad I got to fly their ATPs. If you want to fly any of them, go while you can!


I scratch my head, therefore I am.

I just thought of another question what routing will these dash 8's take to get back to the Azores?

If they get the ferry tanks fitted, they could fly from the east coast of canada to the Azores directly.

Otherwise I presume it will be Canada - Greenland - Iceland - Ireland - Spain - Azores.

I'm sure Gander-Azores is well within the range of an empty Dash 8.

Are it 2nd hand models? Identities?
The Azores are one of the only places to fly on a passenger ATP now, I went there for it last year, but the Dash will replace them within a year or two.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Yes they are secondhand models before they were painted when they were in the hangar getting heavy checks, they had what looked like old horizon livery, but with the new paint job they look almost brand new, I took some photos with my cell phone because i don't have a camera with me I'll upload them when I get back home Wednesday evening!  camera

Did anything come about a venture in Scandinavia (somewhere!) to commence pax ATP flying, I heard it on here a few months ago, but have not heard anything since or seen any pictures, but it could just be that I've missed it?

I wonder if the Q200 will replace the D228 as well? They have that aircraft in order to serve Corvo (CVU) which has an 800m runway - would be quite tight, but the Q200 might just manage it?

That was part of the plan that resulted in the Q400 order.

Anyone know when SATA will start flying them commercially, and on which routes? I'm going for a 2 week holiday to the Azores on the 19th of May, and the domestic flights I'm on were shown as ATP equipped routes a few months ago. Haven't seen anything on their website about the Q200 lately.

YEAP! Called Nextjet. But there is a little problem. NextJet is not offering a timetable with aircraft types and according to booking figures, they might change the type in last minute to the smaller SAAB SF340.  cry

Thanks for that - the livery in the first picture looks almost like Vueling, only with different colors. I suppose being subbed from an ATP to the SAAB 340A isn't too bad, but then again I have the ATP in my logbook and not the SAAB. Think I'll be making a trip to ARM this winter if Ryanair send some decent fare incentives - like £/€5 way!  cloudnine

I think that if an ATR72 can land at Corvo, than a Q200 can do it without any problems  Big grin

Wow, that was a late touch down - but I guess it was empty. Should be able to get off almost fully loaded though, they do at Caticlan. I noticed he didn't quite make the turn on the taxiway though - shouldn't have followed the center line quite so accurately!

Well, even the D228 can be slightly hair-rising at Corvo:

Two of the Dash 8's arrived here in YYT about 2.5 hrs ago.
I saw them taxi to the Irving Aviation ramp. I presume they will be overnighting here on their delivery.
Very nice livery from what I could see in the dark.
