F-27 Operators In The US?

Wed Sep 10, 2003 5:09 pm

Hi- Does anyone know where I can obtain, purchase or beg a seat on an F-27 flight in the USA or Canada these days? It has been 20 years since a ride in one of those beautys. Thanks

Scenic Airlines / Eagfe Canyon Air in North Las Vegas , NV go to their website

According to Airways Magazine's North American Handbook.

You missed Mahalo Airlines in Hawaii by several years.

An answer slightly off the main question would the US Army. They have 2 F-27s for the Golden Knights parachute team. So unless you're willing to join the Army, and jump out of planes, your options for finding a F-27 or a FH-227 operator are slim to none. BTW, Air Wisconsin had a few F-27s not too long ago. But the one carrier I remember the having the most F-27s/FH-227s was Hughes Airwest. At my home airport at LAX, you couldn't miss these Yellow Bananas.  Wink/being sarcastic Regards.
