Bahamasair Takes Delivery
viagra sales ailment times;”>Bahamasair’s executives have reportedly taken delivery of the first of the five new Bahamasair aircraft built by the French aviation company. The total delivery will be finished next year in the spring. The pilots have been running a rearguard action ever since the purchase was announced. They say the ATRs can’t negotiate a stall of an engine on takeoff, that they have a problem with ice on the wings and it does not navigate weather well in the thunderstorms that we experience in this climate very well. They argue that with the Dash 8 being as successful as it has been for Bahamasair why not stick with the same manufacturer for the new planes. One answer is that the Canadian manufacturer of the successor to the Dash 8 couldn’t match the price. The fact is the aircraft were bought by all the Caribbean airlines: LIAT and Trinidad’s Caribbean Airlines and has proven worthy of the task. Anyway the deed is done. The plane will fly by way of Ascension Island and then to West Africa and then to Brazil, then to Panama and then home to Nassau. The commissioning will take place on Tuesday 1stDecember at the Lynden Pindling International Airport.
