I think Brit, Bar Harbor and Rocky Mount combined to become the original Continental Express. I could be mistaken, either way its quite an impressive list and one he!! of a history/business lesson. Wish my college would have offered some history courses about the aviation/airline industry instead of requiring classes like Calc II and Art Appreciation.

have a great weekend

Air LA (1989-!994?)

Went to systems ground school in summer 1990 for the big EMB-110 Bandit but they never got more than one or two I think because of Desert Storm.

Britt, Bar Harbor, Rocky Mountain, and PBA (Provincetown-Boston Airlines) became Continental Express, which is now Expressjet. Our ATC tag is still BTA from the Britt days.

Not only Conquest as Chuck pointed out, but don't forget about Lone Star Airlines/Aspen Mountain Air. I liked Conquest a little better though. Love those cool summer evenings in MFE...
