Nolinor Acquiring 777's?

Mon Dec 09, 2019 4:50 pm

Morning folks,
Saw on instagram that 9V-SCO, now N508BC is headed to Nolinor in Quebec. Anyone able to confirm, or shed any light as to the plans? I've also heard a rumour that a second 777 will follow.

Also another post regarding a new special livery for one of their 732's...wonder what that could be about?

Does the 777 have a gravel runway kit?

Yes by ingesting all of the gravel on the runway.

More likely they’ll do some work on it. Can’t imagine an airline with a handful of 737-200Cs and Convair turboprops have a role for two 777-200ERs.

There is a mistake in the post. The aircraft previous registration is 9V-SVN, recently retired from Singapore Airlines. Now belongs to Boeing. Not sure if Boeing is leasing it to Nolinor Aviation though, since it has charter business, won't be surprised if they did.

They also have a couple of 733s now. Indeed a 77E would be quite the jump.

From the English language website of Nolinor Aviation Charter - https://nolinor.com/en/#
Under the Aircrafts tab at the top - Boeing 737-200, 737-300, Convair 580 & New Aircraft coming soon

Whatever that means to them, I read a 777 could easily be on the way & likey Nolinor likely has a customer in place for at least the short term & with whatever route it is, the 77E is financially viable.

How are they able to keep 40 year old 737-200’s going for so long? At that age they must have flight hours reaching 100,000 and probably a high number of cycles.

Considering they are spending a pretty penny modernizing those B732s with glass cockpits, I would say the B732s they acquire have plenty of life still left in them, and for the most part, are nowhere near the limit of validity of the frames.

Also, their utilization rate per day is pretty low. 2 to 3 hours and 2 to 3 cycles a day for the most part. At that rate, they can keep flying these frames for a while.

Thank you that is quite low utilisation, I’m wonder if it is to make sure the planes last a long time? The cockpit is quite impressive looking when you consider that they carried steam gauges still for the best part of a half century.

Also the recent Angolan additions reportedly had stupid low utilization prior, IIRC somewhere around 30,000 hours on them so while calendar-year age they're old, they aren't used up like an ex-WN 732 would be.

Those 777 are not going to Nolinor. The flight number for the ferry flight was N508BC, the plane's registration. The IATA code for Nolinor is N5, so basically every flight number that starts with N5 on FR24 indicates Nolinor Aviation. Fake news.

The last 737-200's were built in the late 80's. They snatch up low hour airframes when they become available. I'm sure the gravel kits have been transferred several times.
