It goes into an open market, there's only Twotter, Dornier 228 and LET 410 in that sector at present and two of those are pretty tired and one not very flexible...

ISTR FedEx were important launch (or early) customers for the Caravan, too; but there were some early accidents with single pilot (bad) IMC and/or night ops. Perhaps FedEx have now decided to go with twins for their thinner 'spoke' routes

It's a re work of the GAF Nomad by the looks. Either that or a mini Shorts 360 :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I think it's one of the nicest looking aircraft ever designed. It really does have that "just right" look about it.
