What Does USC & CSJ Mean On Flightarrivals.com?

Wed Oct 16, 2002 10:59 am

I was looking at flightarrivals.com and I noticed there were some flights there with USC & CSJ on them leaving and comming into MDW. Are they military or charter? They are operated by Cessna 208's. Anyone got info?

There is another flight that is a United Express Aircraft arriving at MDW. It's United Express BLR6267. It's operated by a Jetstream 32 and originated in Cincinnati. Anyone know about this too?

Being Cessna Caravans, they might be FedEx contract flights.

USC is AirNet Express (learjets and piston twins), formerly called U.S. Check ("starcheck" is the call sign). I'm not sure about the other one. BLR ("blueridge" call sign for Atlantic Coast) no longer operates J32s.

Thanks and I don't know about the BLR one it might have been a Jetstream 31 or some other jetstream. Could it have been Corporate Airlines?

CcrlR...you seem to be mistaking the code "J328" for Jetstream 32. J328 is the Fairchild 328 JET operated by ACA for the Delta Connection flights out of CVG. No junkstreams in the Delta system as far as I know. Flight Arrivals has a problem with displaying "United Express" for all ACA flights...I have sent a request for them to fix it -- but nothing yet.

Oh thanks for clearing that up with me. I was confused with it too. Does anyone know how many times they come to MDW with the 328 jet?

USC is AirNet Systems while CSJ is Castle Aviation. They're both "check haulers" as they specialize in carrying cancelled checks all over the country. MDW is a hub for the Federal Reserve Bank cancelled check distribution system so you see a lot of these types of flights, particularly at night.

By the way, ACA is flying CVG-MDW once daily. The CVG-MDW flight arrives at 9:24 pm overnights and then returns to CVG at 5:45 AM.

BLR = Blue Ridge = callsign for Atlantic Coast Airlines (United Express) and ACJet (Delta Connection)

Some airline codes reflect the callsign more than the actual name of the airline, so if you know the callsigns you might have a clue for the three letter codes.

OUBoy79- not all ACA flights are United Express -- the FRJ flights are Delta Connection, not United Express -- so you can't make a global change from BLR to United Express.

Redngold --

Couple things...ACJet has been dropped...it is all just ACA now - if you find an ACJet logo anywhere, i'll be shocked.

Also you said >>OUBoy79- not all ACA flights are United Express -- the FRJ flights are Delta Connection, not United Express -- so you can't make a global change from BLR to United Express.<<

Consider re-reading my post. >>Flight Arrivals has a problem with displaying "United Express" for all ACA flights...I have sent a request for them to fix it -- but nothing yet.<<

Flight Arrivals is doing just that which is an issue i've pointed out to them but they have yet to fix. I'm well aware that ACA flies the FRJs for Delta Connection -- I see them buzzing over every day coming into TOL.

Cheers
