Air Fresno in Talks About Bringing Back Older Aircraft

Executives and staff at Air Fresno are discussing the possibility of taking the fleet back to the early days of the airline. The current roster is made up of more than 10 pilots who have been with the airline, going back to it’s opening a dozen years ago. Those pilot fill out a monthly survey of where they would like to see the airline go as far as fleet and routes in the coming months. “There is a growing trend to go back and expand the regional service profile, discontinue the transcontinental service and the airliners servicing those routes, and concentrate specifically on the western United States”. Currently the British Aerospace RJ-100 and Embraer EMB-120RT offer that alternative, but under the proposed plan the airline would drop the RJ-100 and 737-700 service completely, keep the single example of the 737-300 and re-introduce the Beech 1900 into fleet service. “There would be more than one choice of the Beech 1900, including the PMDG Express payware in both the C-1 and D models, and the GMAX Academy “D” flight model”. The Cantu Embraer would continue service as it has since 2006, both the EMB-120 and Beech 1900 would receive retro 1998 style livery changes.
