Are Eagle/Scenic F-27s Still Flying From Vegas?

Thu Jun 03, 2004 9:17 pm

Hi all,
I noticed the Fokker 27 fleet of Scenic Air/Eagle Jet Charter has largely been sold off recently. Any people from the Las Vegas region know what their plans are, if they will fly Fokker 27 in the future, replace it or only fly DHC-6 Twin Otters from now on? When did they cease F-27 flying and why?
Any help appreciated.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I believe all the F.27s are gone now. The fleet consists of the Twin Otter for sightseeing and the 1900C for the scheduled service.

The why, perhaps, is that the F.27 was unable to provide a proper view for 1/2 the passengers and was just too much aircraft for the scheduled service.

You need a window seat for the sightseeing flights.
The day you stop learning is the day you should die.
