Anyone know anything about an outfit that goes by the name of Sierra Pacific? I saw a 737-200 with this logo operate into/out of EWR during the September shutdown.

Sierra Pacific has been around for a long time. They only fly charters these days. I have heard that they do a lot of Government contract work, especially for the US Forest Service.

Thanks Flygga, for the info and pix. I'm sure that a government charter is what I saw, as it was probably on September 12th I remember seeing the 737 land and take off at EWR.

They also stopped in BWI before going into EWR to pick up more people.When i first started at the airport they did daily charters to NAS,now it's mostly sport charters.

Sierra Pacific has been around since 1976. Head offices are in Tucson, AZ (Actually I believe Marana has annexed the area where their office is located).




Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Actually Sierra Pacific has been around a lot longer than 1976. Look at the dates on some the photos above. They used to operate scheduled flights out of Mammouth Lakes CA (Ski Area) with the Convairs back in the 70's.

In the mid-90s I occasionally saw Sierra Pacific 737s at San Diego. I had thought they were a Nevada based casino charter carrier. Guess I was wrong.

I believe they also did scheduled passenger operations for a short period in the late 70's or early 80's.

Over the years Sierra Pacific has operated some Casino charters for to Lauglin NV. Also back in the early 90's they flew scheduled service for Morris Air before they got their own operating certificate. I flew them on a Morris Air flight from SJC-SEA back in 91 or 92.

They do lots of Forest Service and BLM charter work during the fire seasons carting firefighters and their gear to the hot spots. I see the 737-200 regularly in Alaska during the summer and they can also be seen in Boise, undoubtedly doing work for the Interagency Fire Center.

I also JUST saw one of their planes parked alongside a Southwest 737-700 in SLC yesterday.

Clarification. Sierra Pacific recieved it's own certificate in 1976. The earliest aircraft I know of was delivered MAR 10, 1973 but never operated. The Beech 18 shown is a different carrier.

Sierra Pacific operated scheduled passenger service under their own name at FAT, among other stations. The service at FAT operated roughly from 1974 to the middle of 1979.

There was also another airline that had the same color scheme that used to fly Cessna 402's out of SJC to FAT back in the early 70's. It was called Trans Sierra. I am not sure how they were related.
