Delivery Routes For Short Range Planes?

Thu Nov 02, 2000 3:33 am

Hi,

I originally posted this in the civil aviation forum but due to the Taiwan crash and perhaps because it wasn't the most appropriate forum there was no response. Perhaps Technical/Operations is better:

I'm wondering what sort of delivery routes are used for
short range planes like Bombardier CRJ's, Dash-8's,
Embraer jets, ...

For example what sort of route would Bombardier use to get
its CRJ's from Montreal to customers in Europe,
Australia, or Japan since it obviously doesn't have the
range to do this without stopping. Are there standard transAtlantic routes through Gander, Greenland, Shannon, ...

Cheers,
bodobodo

Dash 8 deliverys are sometimes passed through Newcastle in the Uk on their way to European airlines.
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

I have seen in Anchorage.....

717's on their way to Impulse.
DC-9's on their way to Cebu Pacific.
and Boeing 737's on their way to Japan.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

How do you get a Beech 1900 to Australia you ask, well first you fly it to the San Francisco Bay Area (the closest mainland location to Hawaii), and then add "ferry" tanks for added fuel for the long jump accross the pond to Hawaii. Once you get to Hawii you can "island hop" your way across the South Pacific. Here is a shot of a B1900D at Hayward California on a delivery flight to Great Western Aviation of Australia.


The flight from the SFO area in turboprop like this is about 11-12 hours. They even ferry small single engine Cessna and Pipers from here to Hawaii. For those guys it is a long 18-20 hour flight!!!!!!!
