Default Re: Current Canadian Airlines Not Yet Represented in 1/200


Established 1987
Based in Vancouver, British Columbia

Pacific Coastal Airlines, or Pasco as it's known by at YVR, is a regional airline offering both land and sea plane services all over British Columbia. They have flown (and continue to fly) some pretty unique aircraft too! Gemini Jets released a 1/400 scale Pacific Coastal Airlines Shorts 360, but it was far too tiny to really appreciate if you ask me (although I do have it in my collection).

* Pacific Coastal owns and operates a fleet of vintage Grumman G-21A Goose amphibious airplanes (four of a known 30 aircraft in the world that are still airworthy).
* The tails of their aircraft are all unique and represent different west coast scenes or activities.
* Pacific Coastal employs over 300 people at their bases with hubs in Vancouver and Port Hardy.
* Pacific Coastal is the largest land-based airline in the Greater Vancouver Regional District - the third largest metropolitan area in Canada.

Pasco's Fleet:
Saab 340A (x6)
Beechcraft 1900C (x7)
Grumman G-21A Goose (x4)
de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver (x4)
Shorts 360-300 (x2 - currently stored)
Beechcraft Super King Air 200 (x1)
de Havilland Canada DHC-3T Turbine Otter (x1)
