FAA needs BAC1-11 training?

Nostalgia I suppose. Now why would the FAA need BAC1-11 training?

There are about 20 BAC 1-11s on the US register. Not sure how many have current CofAs but appears there is a continuing need to have 1 or more inspectors current in type.

USAir (ne Allegheny) used to be a big operator and had a fair size training operation at PIT. Trained S. American airline crews and others, but that was years ago, probably all gone now. Wonder where?

Braniff used to have them as well, way way back... think they mostly ended up as Corporate Barges... Ah, the old Braniff scheme...

Does anyone from the thread know how many are still flying. A P4 registered one left SEN UK two weeks ago after an interior refit. I had been hoping to see it depart but missed it of course. There are a number still operating under P4 reg out of Romania, probably due to the spares availble from the Rombacs 1-11s.

There's a company in Miami, whose name escapes me at the moment, that took over the USAir BAC1-11 and Fairchild F-27/227 initial and recurrent training. Both sims are located there. There are a lot of ex-USAir pilots retired all over Florida, so there is no shortage of instructors.

Go to http://fp.mrshubigbus.plus.com You should find the info you need about the BAC1-11 there. The site is a veritable mine of information on the 1-11 aircraft and the survivors.

111 colors

Speaking of pretty, somewhere in my collection is a photo of a Mohawk bird in their final colors as Allegheny was taking them over. Very attractive, brown & yellow blended as I recall.

All long gone I suspect. Great little plane to ride, but R/T after touchdown was cause for ear protection...
