Lightbulb Current Canadian Airlines Not Yet Represented in 1/200

Here's something to consider:

There are currently FIVE airlines in Canada that fly regularly scheduled domestic jet service year-round. Those airlines are:

1. Air Canada
2. WestJet
3. Air North
4. Canadian North
5. First Air

Of those airlines, only Air Canada and WestJet have been represented with 1/200 scale jet releases. Canadian North got a Dash 8 release from JC Wings, but it wasn't in full-livery. It was a plane leased to Canadian North from Regional 1.

In addition, there are two major Canadian airlines that offer year-round international service and neither have been represented with a proper 1/200 release:

1. Air Transat
2. Sunwing

There are also dozens of regional carriers in Canada yet to be represented, some of which certainly deserve releases that would sell well. I plan to shed light on some of those airlines in this thread by providing some information about the airline, photos, and reasons why they deserve a release in 1/200.

AIR NORTH

Established on February 1st, 1977
Based in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory

Aside from the eye-catching orange and white paint scheme, there are lots of great reasons to add an Air North release to any 1/200 collection:

*Air North in the largest airline in the Yukon and ONE of only FIVE carriers that provides year-round jet-service domestic sched-flights.
*Air North flies regularly scheduled flights to destinations in the Yukon, British Columbia, Alberta, Northwest Territories and Ontario. Those destinations include major cities such as Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna, Whitehorse, and Yellowknife.
*Air North employs more than 500 people in Vancouver and the Yukon.
*Air North contributes more than $20 million to the Yukon economy each year.
*Air North has flown over one million passengers on its Boeing 737 service
*Air North provides a valuable cargo service to northerners, flying in food and supplies to secluded northern communities.
*Air North is regularly chartered by professional sports teams such as the BC Lions and Vancouver Whitecaps to get them to major sporting events in Canada and the US.

The fleet currently includes:
Boeing 737-500 (x4)
Boeing 737-400 (x1)
Boeing 737-200 Combi (x1)
Hawker Siddeley HS 748 (x5)

Past aircraft have included the Douglas DC-3/C47 and Douglas DC4

CANADIAN NORTH

Established in 1989
Based in Calgary, Alberta with a hub in Yellowknife, NWT

Perhaps one of the most beautiful liveries to ever grace a Boeing 737 or de Havilland Dash 8 is the blue and yellow of Canadian North. Initially a subsidiary of Canadian Airlines, the airline was purchased by Norterra in 1998. The current livery reflects three distinct symbols of the north: the polar bear, the midnight sun, and the northern lights.

*Canadian North is ONE of only FIVE Canadian carriers to offer year-round scheduled domestic flights on jet equipment.
*Canadian North flies regularly scheduled service across the Northwest Territories and Nunavut as well as Edmonton, Ottawa, Moncton, and seasonal flights to Halifax and St. John's.
*Canadian North is relied upon to get necessary food and supplies to detached northern communities in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

Their fleet currently includes 14 Boeing 737s (200, 200c, and 300 variants) and 4 de Havilland Dash 8-100s.

SUNWING

Established in 2005

Cool thread. I would LOVE to see a 1:200 model of Air Transat

By the way, who made previous Air Transat models?

Great postings oh Zen-Master! :-) The ongoing policy to "forget Canada"; as one non-Canadian modeller on another forum recently proclaimed, leads me to forego holding my breath on any of these, despite the glaring under-subscription of Canadian airlines and subjects in our hobby.

As I pointed out in another thread, if we could convince manufacturers that the Polar Bear on the beautiful Canadian North livery was actually a deformed kangaroo seeking yet further "LOOK AT ME" attention for a particular over-subscribed (yawn- here's yet another one) airline, we might just have a chance. Sadly, we're essentially doomed by our own circumspect and quieter nature to being generally disregarded and ignored... sigh!

Hi Leslie,

Flight Miniatures did an A310, SMA did an L1011 and Wooster did a B757 in 1/200 as far as I know.

Cheers,

Looking into it a little closer, I believe all the previous Air Transat 1/200 models were plastic. I've edited my original post to reflect this. Gemini has done 1/400 Air Transat models of the A310 and A330, but I too would love to see something other than Air Canada and WestJet to represent Canadian modern commercial aviation in the 1/200 realm.

Were they diecast or plastic, Roy? The Flight Miniatures one looks plastic to me. Wooster also did an A330, but it definitely looks plastic. Certainly nobody has done a detailed 1/200 diecast release.

I think the hand-painted SMA-ARD? one I've seen on sale in the sale or trade forum here at DA.C. is diecast, but yes, the Flight Miniatures and Wooster examples are plastic, old and poor. You'd think after the (in)famous Azores incident someone might have at least considered an Air Transat B767, but nooooo..........!

Ooops, must've been thinking of the Gimli Glider.... I mean an Air Transat A330. Come to think of it, a nice diecast Gimli Glider would be fine too, even if it's the "over-done" early Air Canada livery.

AIR TRANSAT

Established 1987
Based in Montreal, Quebec with additional bases in Toronto and Vancouver

Air Transat is Canada's third largest airline after Air Canada and WestJet and currently holds the distinction of "World's Best Leisure Airline." However, they may be best known for the 2001 "Azores Incident" in which a fuel starved A330 en route to Lisbon from Toronto made the longest non-powered flight and landing by a commercial airliner in history. The cause of the incident was a fuel leak in the number two engine due to an incorrect part being installed by their maintenance crew. This aircraft was repaired and remains in service with Air Transat today. Air Transat has also proven itself a world-leader in environmental advancements.

*Air Transat operates to 60 destinations with a fleet of 26 aircraft.
*Air Transat books 3.5 million passengers per year.
*Air Transat employees over 2100 people.
*Air Transat has won many awards including the Skytrax "World's Best Leisure Airline" award three years in a row, 2012-2014.
*Air Transat was ranked first in the world in the "Atmosfair Airline Index" in the long-haul category for environmental performance in 2011.
*Air Transat was the first airline in the WORLD to renew its IOSA registration under the new Enhanced IOSA methodology.
*Air Transat became the first airline in the WORLD to attain Minimization level certification from the World Green Aviation Council in 2013.
*Air Transat became the first North American airline to be granted IEnvA Environmental Certification.

Fleet:
Airbus A310-300 (x9)
Airbus A330-200 (x8)
Airbus A330-300 (x4)
Boeing 737-800 (x5)

*Air Inuit also flies into Montreal and Quebec city as well as communities in Newfoundland and Nunavut.
*Air Inuit has been operating with Dash 8s since 1995 and with a 737-200C since 2008
*Air Inuit is vital in providing passenger, cargo and charter services across Nunavik, a region that nobody else covers nearly as extensively.

Boeing 737-200C (x2)
de Havilland DHC-8 Dash 8-300 (x9)
de Havilland DHC-8 Dash 8-100 (x2)

We have seen a general lack of Canadian stuff right across all the popular scales. Even Air Canada and Westjet, though we do have quite a few (tones if you are into historic stuff) but having a really nice Canadian display that has something from every corner of Canada is hard to come by.

I have more US carriers at my airport than Canadian carriers and I don't want to buy more Westjet planes or long haul Air Canada stuff.

All these colours from the various northern carriers are so beautiful (especially Canadian North). If Gemini200 released a CN 737-300WL I would buy it in a heartbeat

Interesting thread. While you are focusing on current Canadian airlines, I'd like to see two historic companies represented too: Canadian Airlines International and Pacific Western Airlines.

If a diecast 1:200 CAI 747 was ever released, along with a 1:200 PWA 737 and 707, I would buy them in a heartbeat.

I flew PWA many times as a kid, and our house was under the glide path for Comox airport, so I watched the PWA 737 fly overhead every late afternoon.

Two airlines I remember from my earliest spotting days at Toronto.

All Canada Express


Millardair


Other than Buffalo Airways, already done, these 2 are the only airlines I'd consider in 1:200 scale, since we will never see these released in 1:400 scale.

I'd like to see Nolinor in both 1/400 and 1/200 (especially if those models are equipped with gravel deflectors)

Nolinor is a charter carrier based in Montreal Quebec, and has hubs there and in Winnipeg. They operate Boeing B737-200 aircraft (mostly combies) and Convair 580's, plus a Learjet 32 for executive transport.

I really like seeing them fly over my hometown on their way to Kitchener Waterloo international.

It's plastic. I have a feeling it is made by Premier Portfolio. I stumbled across it on ebay a while back. I'd never seen one before and doesn't show up in any of the model databases. I added the Hogan gear and the aerial.

One carrier that would be so simple would be Morningstar Air Express.

Take the current 757 (and the 1/400 one) erase the american flag and American reg on the tail and add a Canadian flag and Canadian Reg. So easy, no effort at all

SM200 models are decaled and are not up to the same standard as other manufactures. The Inflight Nationair is the red & blue, I'd prefer the final scheme.

Yes, this is one of the true great mysteries of the post-industrial age , an Iconic aircraft in a beautiful and not over-done livery from a significant airline and month to month we get the same-old same-old instead. It's amazing how attitude can get in the way of sure profits!

Good choice AF A340! These are colourful and something a little different.

Cheers,

Inflight did the DC-10 in this scheme and I'm really glad to have it.
Though I would love to have the 744 too.

I'm glad to see this thread going strong! I've been away for a week. I'll put up a couple more airlines tonight and/or tomorrow.

HAWKAIR

Established in 1994
Based in Terrace, British Columbia

Hawkair is a charter and regional airline serving central British Columbia. Although they operate with a small fleet, they are a sister airline to Central Mountain Air (est. 1987) and Northern Thunderbird Air (est. 1971).

* Hawkair started operation as a cargo airline with a Bristol Freighter. When the Bristol Freighter was retired, it was flown to the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. This was the last known flight by a Bristol Freighter.
* Hawkair have been flying scheduled passenger service since 2000.
* Hawkair services small communities and major mining centres across British Columbia.
* One of Hawkair's DHC-8 aircraft features tail art designed by world-famous west coast native artist, Roy Henry Vickers (who's work is owned by Queen Elizabeth II, Bill Clinton, and Boris Yeltson).

Hawkair's fleet consists of three de Havilland Canada Dash 8-100s and one de Havilland Canada Dash 8-300. Previous Hawkair aircraft include a Bristol Freighter, a Beechcraft King Air 200, a Fairchild Metro II, and a Fairchild Merlin IV.

Hawkair Dash 8-300 (C-FIDL) and Dash 8-100 (C-FCJE):

I want it too. Shame the artist did not know his/her geography as Calgary and Edmonton are reversed position wise.

Any shots of the "East" side? I'd say our chances of ever getting one of these out of the diecast companies is hovering around 0% but I'd love one. The CFL is the only league that plays proper gridiron instead of Groundball.
