RAA has been doing charter work for SSV for the last couple of weeks. Several trips have been completed from YYZ to YTS, YSB, YQT, YHD and YEG picking up MNR crews and taking them to the Forest Fires that are raging out of control in Alberta. RAA has also been on some regular SSV charters when the loads permit.
As for the rest of the Roots Birds, TDC will return into 'cattle-car' config and SSV colours for the winter season. RAA has the same fate, and RAR (a lemon) has been re-leased. RAE will most likely go back to LTU. I have heard the two companies are trying to reach a settlement on the early return of the a/c.
On a different note RAA has been to YQT three times in the past week and all I can say is wow! I hadn't seen the interior up until now and it is VERY nice. I am sure with more time and better planning Roots Air would have worked. There's something about a brand new airplane........with a great interior!!
