Any Airlines Operating Single Engine Aircraft?

Wed Nov 26, 2003 11:04 am

Hello ppl, I was just wondering if there are any airlines that operate single engine planes as well as multi engine.

Thanks to Shadi(MEA321) for giving me this idea.

lots in Canada operate PC-12s along with larger twins, Bearskin Airlines for example operates PC-12s, Beech C99s, King Airs and Metro III/23s.

Air Creebec is another example, operating PC-12s, EMB-110s, B1900Ds, Dash 8s and an HS748 Freighter.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

I believe there was a ban imposed on single-engined "airliners" way back when, but I can't exactly remember the details of it. Anyone know more details?

B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

Companion Air in the US will also be using the PC-12 when it begins operations...

SANSA in Costa Rica utilizes Cessna Caravans as well...

There are a ton of airlines in Alaska and all throughout that use DHC-2 and DHC-3 aircraft on float planes that carry passengers on hunting and fishing trips.

Are we also referring to cargo airlines? Fed Ex has probably 200 Caravans in its fleet.

There still must be quite a lot of An2s in passenger service, both in the former USSR and beyond...

If you are talking "airline" - what is your definition of an airline...?
xxx
In USA, the definition of an airline is a FAR 121 operator with such AOC certificate...
Single engine aircraft are prohibited from FAR 121 operations...
xxx
What you might find is operators with a FAR 135 type certificate... using single engines...
Lots of restrictions for single engine operations, i.e. IFR operations...
Sure... they can put a name with the word "airline" at the end...
