I've flown around the Channel Islands several times with Aurigny on their BNT's, most recently on the GCI
route in 2003. They only fly at 2000ft, so you get great views of the islands from the massive windows! And if you're lucky enough to sit near the front, you'll get to see everything the pilot is up to too. I believe
that on full flights they sometimes even open up the co-pilot's seat to pax, but could be wrong. One of the drawbacks of flying at 2000ft is that you're at the mercy of the elements, so on a bad day you could be in for a rough ride, as I know from bitter experience flying JER
back in 1979 - that was certainly a white knuckle ride and one I wouldn't want to repeat!!
Most of Aurigny's flights between GCI
are operated by the BNT, but every now and again you'll get the SH6. I believe they also use it to do overnight postal runs to the mainland. Never been lucky enough to catch it myself, but as I'm doing a business trip down to the Channel Islands in September, I might try and plan a trip on one!
