I was wondering, Air North seems to have a very old fleet, consisting mostly of 732s and HS748s. Does anyone know if they plan on replacing them?

Perhaps as a replacement for the 732s, they can pick up some 733s that are retired by Southwest, or if CO/UA decides on eliminating the 735, the 735 could be a good fit. As for the HS748, perhaps could the Q400 be a good replacement for them?

I'm pretty sure they're flying a 737-400 .... thought I saw that on here someplace.

Yes, they have one 734 and one 735 in the fleet in addition to three 732s and four HS748s.

Air North added one 737-400 about a year ago and one 737-500 4 or 5 months ago.

The 734 was most recently operated by OA. It was originally delivered to Asiana in 1992 and also spent a while with Varig and US charter carrier Ryan International. The 735 was most recently with Aeroflot-Nord (which changed its name to Nordavia). It began life in 1993 with Braathens in Norway and then went to Xiamen Airways in China before going to Russia.

There are a lot of threads on the 732 in Canada and how it is largely irreplaceable. Theres not a lot to replace the HS748 either, I think the ATR42 combi is the best bet.

I hope they don't replace them anytime soon! I have been planning a trip to Canada for ages and the highlight would be to fly the 73M and the HS7.

Saludos,

I read in Airliner World that Air North is extremely happy with their HS7s and if they need to replace one they will get another HS7.

Uhm, you CAN'T replace a gravel-kitted 737-200 with a 737-300. Hence Alaska Air kept their -200 fleet until the paving of Red Dog. Once they were no longer the only act in town, AS got rid of them.
I work on gravel-kitted 737-200s myself; they're indispensable for what they do.

Out of curiosity, although not currently available for use in the came capacity as a 732QC, would an MD-83 be able to fill this role? High mounted engines, and all.

Don't know about the MD-83, but Air Mike used to have a B727 Combi with gravel kit back when the runways in Micronesia were not paved.
