Highland Connection which is based in Edinburgh will allow members even more choice when selecting flights, particularly those of shorter durations. Fly UK has opted for the tried and tested Beechcraft 1900D regional turboprop powered aircraft. These aircraft are capable of operating from short strips which make them ideal for this type of operation. Although production of these aircraft ended in 2002, they are still in widespread use today. Fly UK has acquired four B1900D’s from the European Market, all of which now sport our new Highland Connection livery.
Highland Connection aims to connect all parts of the UK to The Highlands and so in conjunction with the existing Fly UK mainstream operations to and from Edinburgh; Highland Connection will offer services to Bristol, Manchester and Norwich.
Fly UK Members can now fly to the following destinations from the main base of Edinburgh:
Aberdeen, Benbecula, Bristol, Campbletown, Inverness, Islay, Isle Of Man (Ronaldsway), Kirkwall, Manchester, Norwich, Stornoway, Sumburgh, Tiree and Wick
We have freeware aircraft packages for FS2004/FSX and a repaint for the PMDG B1900D.

Henderson, NV — Earlier this morning, bluWave Airlines executives announced plans to launch daily, nonstop service to two (2) new destinations in Texas linking Phoenix, AZ and Denver, CO to Austin, TX and San Antonio, TX, respectively. In addition, the airline plans to increase capacity between Phoenix and Denver year-round.
These plans come after bluWave expanded its presence in the Bay Area earlier this month thanks to a push from industry analysts hired by the firm in light of its purchase of four (4) Boeing 737s from the now defunct SnapJet Airlines, LCC in January.
“It’s been clear to us for some time now that our customers have been looking for us to establish a presence in the east,” said Johnathon Neilsen, bluWave’s recently hired COO. “We’re committed to fulfilling their wishes and we look forward to bringing the airline in this direction.”
President and CEO Connor Levens added that although they aimed to launch service to Texas once the official start of summer had passed, it was ironic that they were beginning operations in Texas during Independence week. “It’s funny how some things just fall into the woodwork like that,” he told reporters in Henderson. “Nonetheless, it’ll only help drive up revenue in the third quarter.”

Flight 620 Departs: 6:00 a.m. Arrives: 8:30 a.m.
