Biggest newcomer for British operator
Miami-based aircraft lessor Jetstream Aviation Capital has delivered a Saab 340B(F) to RVL Aviation of East Midlands Airport, Derby, UK. The aircraft, serial number 340B-223, is the first of a multi-aircraft commitment between Jetstream and RVL and will be used for ad-hoc cargo charter and RVL's operations on behalf of its major international logistics customers.
RVL managing director Dave Connor: "Everyone at RVL is enormously excited by the prospect of operating the Saabs and taking advantage of the substantially larger cargo volume (35.8 cbm) and payload (3.4 t) that they offer."
It joins a fleet of smaller planes like 4 Beech King Air, 6 Reims-Cessna 406, 2 Cessna 404 and one Cessna 402 aircraft for passenger and cargo charter and long-term contract operations for third parties. (ah)
