Just today I found some pictures of a Dornier 328 Prop flying for Central Mountain Air (a regional Canadian carrier) from 2007 and 2008. There's a thread from around that time saying that it might be flying some scheduled routes.

I see that the aircraft is still featured on the CMA website, but I am wondering if it's still flying any scheduled routes, or if it's just charters now. No pictures within the last two years, so the database doesn't seem to be much help. Also, is there just one of them, or did they eventually pick up a second?

It seems like quite an oddball plane for them to have, since the rest of their aircraft are too small to have flight attendants, and so they must have a microscopic pool of FA's to fly on just these aircraft? And there are no other Canadian operators of the type to provide crew or training for this.


Next flight.... who knows.

It seems to fly quite a bit on what appear to be regular flights from Calgary/Edmonton/Fort St John & Fort Nelson

Now the livery has changed. At aircraft is all white with red "Central Mountain Air" titles and black engines.

I have seen both at YVR recently and they fly the weekday Dawson Creek route.

The 328TP does seem a strange selection when other operators have the Saab 340, and a Dash 8 100 is not much bigger, of which there are plenty around. You may be better off asking on one of the local forums to get some of the insiders.
