I spoke to some Wideroe pilots a few years ago. They said the dream solution would be newbuild Q200s with a glass cockpit upgrade

Re: Wideroe dash8 STOL replacement: ATR S series?

I know what the Government wants. For me personally its quite hard to imagine a electrified 37-40 seater with pressurized cabin that the Q100/200 provides in such a near future. Agree, but it could be that their next STOL fleet will take another approach than using a "one size fits all" s...

Re: Wideroe dash8 STOL replacement: ATR S series?

With the Government of Norway having said that they want a fully electrified domestic flight network in the coming years, I am more seeing WF being an early bird for an electric prop whenever that might be launched. I guess the sector length is of no limitation here, when you know how short hops th...

Re: Wideroe dash8 STOL replacement: ATR S series?

I surely hope Widerøe will find suitable replacement for the aging Dashes. From what I've learned so far there is simply no better alternative for WF than som new -100s or Q200. As I said in previous post. I do hope that a revamped "NG-version" of the Q200 will be possible in the future.

I doubt it The wideroe dash8 fleet is aging. Whats going to replace the wideroe dash 8 aging fleet? Hopefully someday production of the Q200 will reopen. Doesn't Viking Air have the patent/papers for it and could be able to reopen production if there is enough demand. Secondly WF have taken some ol...

RE: VS43 LGW-LAS In Trouble?

Rumors say there might be issues with the landing gear.

More sources say that the right wing landing gear is not down. Emergency landing is probably coming up.

Aircraft Change On BA-flights 903 And 780?

I'm supposed to fly on BA903 and BA780 the upcoming saturday. These flights are used to be operated by 767's and they were listed to fly with 767s when I booked. (Quite a big reason for me to book these flights in the first place). But for some reason when I check my booking now both of the flights ...
