Hi Don, I too work for Skyservice and am qualified on Sporthawk. Yes, we do fly the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, Toronto Blue Jays, The Ottawa Senators, the Calgary Flames, ...there are other teams we fly, but these are our regulars. It's kind of fun to get to know what guys like Vince Carter drinks. Most guys have their "regular seats on board" . There is also a Sporthawk USA division, they are based in the US and fly a lot of the US teams around; they have 2 B-727's. As Airman99o stated, the aircraft are luxurious and although the 727 older, the maintencance standards are exceedingly high. I guess it would have to be with so many famous teams utilizing the operation. We get a lot of layovers in the cities where games are, but only if our teams are on the road. Sometimes, if we fly from YYZ- to other eastern cities, we just drop the guys off, wait at the airport and take them home after the game.
The service on these flights is highly demanding. Anything over 50 mins gets a ground service: usually chicken and beef burritos/cold drinks. Ater take off, a choice of hot dinner, salad, bread, chocolate cream pie, hot cookies and milk, ice cream bars and drinks....get your roller blades on because you need them. Somehow we manage to do it! All in 55 minutes and that does not include climb and descent. Cheers!
