Nolinor Convair 580 Pleasure Flight

Sun Jun 22, 2014 2:35 am

Stop Press - calling any Convair fans out there!!!!

Are their any people out who will be in Canada on October 25th also interested in taking a flight on a Convair 580?

I have booked KLM flights to Canada to ride on the last MD11 service on 25th October.
I also decided to contact Nolinar about arranging a flight on one of their CV580's.
I am arranging with Nolinar a pleasure flight from Montreal Mirabel on Saturday October 25th, probably around 1100 down to Ottawa and back, time to get off and get pictures at Ottawa, before arriving back around 1300-1400. The aircraft has 49 seats and Costs will depend on numbers but as a guide i expect;

20 PAX - GBP 460, EUR 552, USD 742, CAD 825
25 PAX - GBP 370, EUR 444, USD 596, CAD 660
30 PAX - GBP 310, EUR 372, USD 499, CAD 550
35 PAX - GPB 270, EUR 324, USD 434, CAD 471
40 PAX - GBP 235, EUR 282, USD 378, CAD 412
45 PAX - GBP 210, EUR 252, USD 338, CAD 366
49 PAX - GBP 195, EUR 234, USD 314, CAD 336 (MAX load)

(based on exchange rates as at 14/06/14)

If numbers are low, then as an option, we can go to Ottawa, touch and go and back to Mirabel at a cheaper cost if that is a better option for you with the prices for that start at GBP 365 for 20 pax and and GBP 155 for 49 if full?

You will be responsible for your own travel arrangements to/from Mirabel. Please email me below with any questions or a booking. I will aim to close bookings on October 1st (in the unlikely event that it is not already full) and email you confirmed price when the numbers have been counted. I will update this throughout as well with numbers.This will give me time to collect the monies and pay Nolinar before i myself leave for Canada. Thankyou

Hey Kevin,

That would be pretty cool. I see Nolinor all the time in Churchill, Canada (CYYQ / YYQ)sometimes with their 737 and sometimes with their Convairs. So what you're proposing is to charter them for a flight from Mirabel to Ottawa?

Cheers

Hi Vio/All
I have arranged to charter a Nolinor Convair 580 from Mirabel down to Ottawa and back. I never flew on a Convair (of any sort) and missed last years excursion
organised by Classic Jet Tours so decided to try and organise one myself. Hopefuly it will interest enough people to make it viable to operate. The prices give
an idea of costs and is not for profit (I don't intend to make anything from it). Cheers
Regards
Kev

That's really awesome. It's too soon for me to commit to anything along those lines yet, as I don't know my work schedule yet. I'll come back here and check on the update. If I'm free around that time, I would like to come. I just can't commit yet, until I see how and where I work.

Cheers
