I wonder how good the performance is for a CRJ2 out of there.
Terrain and climb gradients off 21 might pose a limiting issue for single engine performance (haven’t looked at it in years so not sure). But considering likely destinations are PHX, LAX, and at very long but not unimaginable odds SLC, I don’t see there being much of an impact. SkyWest runs CR2s into similar sized airports in mountainous areas without too many restrictions. I’m sometimes amazed what the old Scooters can do sometimes. Granted they don’t do it in a spectacular manner, but they get the job done, well done-ish.
After originally selecting Boutique I know that Prescott then changed their minds and the route recently went back for bid, but nothing in the docket yet. Rumor around Phoenix is SlyWesr will be taking over but nothing definite on routes, frequency, etc.
Given the OO "ad" for PRC shows UA, I'd assume LAX and/or DEN have already been confirmed but not announced.
I'm also hearing the Page has selected someone outside of EAS for their service.
