Think it might be a problem with the website as just looked at there online timetable for flights from EDI and the schedule being displayed is the one for W15/16

Wonder what they will do with the 2x Jetstream 41s and crews that this frees up?
Looking at the summer 18 timetable it would appear that MME will have a based aircraft again. Also the Humberside flight is direct again to Aberdeen, but you know Eastern, things could change again.

Stornoway airport plane incident
29 pax - is that an average figure?

Easterly wind gusting 33kts around that time - maybe a factor?

An Air UK F27 did that at ABZ one winter time, lined up with the runway centreline lighting, commenced it's take-off run, went roaring off down the runway and it was onlly once it had exited the ARP that the Captain came to realise that ABZ didn't have runway centreline lighting!

That was the second incident from the same Captain in quick succession to each other and as I recall he was given 24 hours to resign.

Indeed he did HW, I remember it as well. I think from my hazy memory it either had been or was snowing at the time.

Yes, snow was a factor.

The incident prior to that the same Captain had had a hot start, flames out the side of the Dart, not sure if he blew a fire bottle before, he jumped out the DV window leaving the passengers and all on board watching their Captain running across the tarmac

Does anyone know if T3’s S2000, G-CFLV is in temporary storage or has it left the fleet?

Also when will the ATR start operating to Scatsta?

That ATR Was back in HUY Yesterday. Seems to spend time going HUY-DTV-ABZ And back .
Some days I think but don't source it's flown to Southampton to DTV From HUY.
Once NWI - HUY - DTV -ABZ.
In answer I thought I'd seen it on FR24 Down at 14000 feet heading North from Sumburgh a couple of weeks back . No destination and Scatsa didn't record it as being on the ground after watching it land there .

Yes it did some crew training at Scatsa before returning to MME direct.

Does anyone know if T3 are planning to add BE's livery to any other aircraft in the coming weeks and months?. Also when are T3 operated flights beyond mid June expected to go on sale through BE's website?.

Apparently no further aircraft to be painted at this point. I guess schedules will depend on them finding some passengers. Carrying two at a time on the Embraer 170 as they were doing today isn't exactly productive.

MME-ABZ

Also 2 passengers on last Wednesday's tea time flight, MME-ABZ in the ATR. I think there was about 18 on the Loganair.

Concerning the ATR, would they be able to train pilots and carry fare paying passengers at the same time? Any passengers would help cut the cost of retraining pilots.

to convert a pilot to a new type is 2 weeks ground school followed by 10-16 sessions in a full motion simulator.

After that they go into whats called line training which is done with pax in the back.

The stuff that's done in the sim can't be simulated in the real aircraft and the stuff that can I doubt you would have much repeat custom from PAX if you subjected them to it.

Regulations came in years ago to prevent type ratings being done on an aircraft if their is a simulator available. So even if they did want to they can't now. In the past Eastern did used to do some conversions on aircraft such as Jetstream 32 to Jetstream 41. But its illegal now.
