Stratos Caribbean

Posted by Bill Kirkham on 08/19/16

Stratos has acquired a Dash8-Q400 and has been refurbished and reregistered and now sports a fresh new colour, specially for the Caribbean. the aircraft fly out of Barbados and Jamaica, most of the routes are less than 1 hour but some around 2 hours. I hope you enjoy flying this aircraft into some amazing airports on the islands. Bill.

Good Day All

As you all know the Bournemouth hub has been set up to relive the early days of Channel Express using the aircraft of that time.

On reflection I see know that may not have been such a great Idea, as those who requested these older aircraft like the Herald and Electra, are either no longer with us or are just not interested anymore.

So I feel that maybe some of these old ones can be done away with, Maybe keep a couple of them around.

And maybe we can move Bournemouth back up to present day operations using the more modern aircraft currently at our disposal.

So I think over the next few weeks you will start to see these older aircraft disappear in favor of newer models.

I will also post this in the forum so if you want to comment or suggest an alternative you will be able to..


New Tour Added

Posted by Bill Kirkham on 06/30/16

We have just added a tour of European cities, you can choose what aircraft you want to fly, flight times are all less than 3 hours and Approximate times as it will vary pending on what you choose to fly.

We hope you enjoy this fun tour.

Pilot of the Month & Landing R

Posted by Brian Mason on 06/28/16

Good Day All

As per the forum post, The Pilot Of the Month Award has now been abolished, As to has the Lowest Landing Rate

However I will continue to make notes on the Monthly Stats and the award will still be added to your pilot records which I keep.

As I feel that the Pilot Of The Year can continue and these Monthly records will continue to be used for this award


Thank You
