Air Fresno Aquires New Aircraft

Faced with a difficult decision regarding its fleet, after a week of extensive testing Air Fresno has decided that the Airbus A318, as well as other variants, suit their service requirements. “The stickler was the approaches into both South Lake Tahoe and Santa Barbara where terrain and noise were issues. There simply was no other choice available for the steep approaches and departures at these two locations than the A318 with it’s Steep Approach Mode and Fly By Wire.” The airline immediately secured a lease for one A318 with the enhanced capabilities while placing an order for purchase for one from Airbus for expedited delivery. Air Fresno is also acquiring one A319, two A320′s and one A321, with the A319 arriving by mid-January. As each new variant arrives Air Fresno will expand it’s routes for that model. “Investment in these aircraft is going to be substantial, we wanted to make sure the choice we make today is going to still be the right one at the end of 2012″. Cost for the five planned aircraft is estimated at $305 million, with the last aircraft set to arrive my the end of March. Air Fresno’s new aircraft and revised familiar livery can be seen at www.airfresno.com.

Venture Hawaii Recruiting and Resizing Fleet

Venture Hawaii is proud to announce a new recruiting drive and fleet realignment to gain VATSIM certification and make our VA more appealing to a larger group of pilots.  We have removed several redundant operating divisions and aircraft types we weren’t using and have added a few new types including the Shorts Belfast and will be receiving new CL-44’s in the coming week or two.  In addition to these additions, we will be repainting and uploading the models of these aircraft to our section of our host website in the next couple of weeks.  We are also hoping to finally add repaints of several other models we’ve lacked for a while.

Venture Hawaii is a moderately-sized VA, but our focus is on regional operations with most flight legs being under 3 hours. Our operations are centered on that of a mid- to late-1970′s second-tier airline using mainly classic British and European designs with some American designs mixed in. We have operations based in the Northern US, Southwest US, Alaska, Oceana (Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Solomon Islands, and Samoan islands), and Europe. We also have a small operation (called Venture Safari) that operates out of Kenya, flying tourists from our European hubs.
