With ERA Alaska becoming more and more famous, is it possible that they might wanna purchase some more a/c to expand. They have a lot of 1900C/D's and Cessna Caravan's. Is it possible they might aquire more a/c or serve more cities??

Era Alaska is actually the result of a merger that occured several years ago with Frontier Flying Service and Hageland Aviation. They already have a decent sized fleet for the kind of operations they conduct, with the 208s and 1900s you mentioned as well as a handful of Dash 8s and PA-31s. I don't believe they have any plans for expansion on the horizon. I was going to reference a couple things I read recently in a thread about expansion in ANC, so take a look at it.

Don't forget the 207's... and they also have a couple Shorts 330's too.

Wasn't it really more of a three-way deal with Era Aviation, Frontier Flying Service and Hageland (even though Era was in bankruptcy at the time and was really just being picked up for the planes and the name only)?

They also have some funky twins with cargo pods and I don't know what they are.

Those are the Reims F406. Those are still in production. In this season of Flying Wild Alaska, Eric Snuggerud, the lead pilot out of Bethel, flies one.

He was having a bit of trouble on last fridays episode trying to get out of Bethel.

Anyway, they already have a very good set-up for their operation. They also have a codeshare with Alaska out of ANC, I believe. The only thing I could see them doing would be getting newer models to replace some of the older 207's and 208's

They are moving out of the Beech 1900Cs - if those aren't already on the market for sale, they will be shortly. I believe October is when they are being removed from service.

Fame does not equal demand, especially in the pretty unique market they're operating in. Other than Yukon/NWT I can't think of other areas like it.

Are they replacing them with 1900D's?? If not D models, what a/c will replace mainstay of the fleet??

I was disappointed when they got rid of their Convair 580s a couple of years ago. They were much more comfortable than the Dash 8s. And I enjoyed their sightseeing flights on their 2 DC-3s, which were sometimes used as substitutions on scheduled routes, as I was told. It's a shame that they are gone.
