Can anyone provide info on the aircraft types utilized by Pioneer and Royale in support of CO Commuter flights operated circa 1984? Thanks in advance.

Royale briefly operated DC9 service that went from New Orleans to someplace...Shreveport or Tulsa I think.

I think they also operated Gulfstreams.
Tired of airline bankruptcies....EA/PA/TW and finally DL.

Pioneer was, I believe, an all Fairchild Swearingen Metro fleet in the CO* days. And Royale, in addition to the lone DC9 it flew for a time, had Grumman GRS aircraft. I think that Royale also had a 15-19 seat aircraft which may have been gone before that time...the B99 comes to mind but I'm not positive.

Be Positive.

The Beech 99 was the work-horse of the Royale Fleet...
