Sun routes:
YQB, YOW, YHZ

Domestic routes:
YQT, YYJ, YLW, YXE, YQR

Thanks for that. I wonder if YOW-MCO & TPA will follow or if those will stay mainline?

On a similar note, F8 have made the following changes:
SFB cut to winter seasonal with service resuming 31OCT22
YOW-FLL cut to winter seasonal - last flight 10JUN22, resumes 02NOV22
YOW-YLW cut completely. Last flight 18JUN22 - was Saturday-only service - probably was the problem of not enough frequency. 2x would have seemed more like it.

WS extended its schedule into S23 over the weekend. It's basically a carbon copy of the S22 schedule.

YYC-LHR is currently scheduled from May 2, but I'd imagine will get moved up at least to late March once the winter schedules get updated.

Still no changes to winter other than the removal of YYZ-MIA and YYC-LIH.

The first test flight of a human-operated electric helicopter was in 2015, but this is now a modified Robinson that is close to entering production. I think the Mars craft would fall in the UAS category.

The federal government is expected to announce today it will soon end the mandatory randomized arrival testing for incoming travellers at Canada's airports, CBC News has learned.

As a result, starting as soon as Saturday, June 11, only unvaccinated travellers will be required to take a test upon entry into Canada, said a source with knowledge of the policy who was not authorized to speak publicly....

Moved to Rouge.

Every sun route from YQB, YOW and YHZ are now Rouge.

Toronto Downsview Airport (CYZD) hosted a series of interesting departures on Saturday, June 11 as its manufacturing lines are wound down. This is the best list I've been able to compile based on photos posted online:
  • DH 82 - CF-CKF - Private
  • DHC-1 - C-????
  • DHC-2 - C-FPSM - Viking Air
  • DHC-2 - C-GDWP - Private
  • DHC-2 - C-GODH - Pacific Sky Aviation
  • DHC-3 - C-FMAU - Private
  • DHC-4 - N302PT - Pen Turbo Aviation
  • DHC-6 - C-FMJO - Pacific Sky Aviation
  • DHC-7 - C-GCEV - Air Tindi
  • Dash 8-400 - C-GGTR - De Havilland Aircraft of Canada

De Havilland's own Dash 8-400s have been ferried to Calgary via Winnipeg.

De Havilland Says Good-Bye To Downsview

One of Canada’s most historic aviation industry sites will be officially de-commissioned with a family-style event on Saturday. De Havilland Canada will say good-bye to its Downsview factory for good. Aircraft have been manufactured there for almost 100 years, first by the original De Havilland company, then Boeing and Bombardier and most recently by the most recent iteration of the famous brand revived by Longview Aviation Capital, which is the parent company of Viking Air. The revived company built Dash-8 Q400 turboprops there until earlier this year. It bought the type certificate from Bombardier shortly after Bombardier announced it was selling Downsview to developers three years ago.

The lease on the aircraft facilities is up in 2023 and De Havilland Canada hasn’t yet announced where the Q400 will be made or even if production will resume. The company has announced it will start production of the DHC-515 Firefighter, an updated version of he CL-415, in Calgary in coming years and it continues to make Twin Otters in Victoria and Calgary.

De Havilland's own Dash 8-400s have been ferried to Calgary via Winnipeg.

The new de Havilland takes shape.

I do hope they restart the Q-400 assembly line. However that is still a decision they need to make. As for where, that is obvious, it will be Calgary. Victoria is already constrained both in space at the airport to accommodate the facility as well as space for workers in the area. That only leaves Calgary as an option.

Flair coming to YXU
 
So London is finally going to get Flair Airlines.

https://london.ctvnews.ca/flair-airl...-ont-1.5943695

From what it sounds like, they will start off with a weekly flight to “a sun destination in the southwestern United States”.

I’m going to take a guess that it might be Burbank, CA which Flair flies to from Vancouver.

thenoflyzone Jun 12, 2022 8:45 PM

I think Vegas is more likely.

Burbank doesn’t have customs, and YXU doesn’t have US preclearance. So its not Burbank.

Phoenix-Mesa and Palm Springs are in the same boat as Burbank I think. No customs for commercial flights, only GA.

You sure it's not Tucson, AZ? :D

Flair still have 1x weekly spot on Monday morning to run a run-trip from TUS before returning to YEG by 6pm. So if YXU is going to fill the slot, it would run every Monday starting Dec 5, which fits the timeline in the article. So this is my guess:
TUS-YXU every Monday departing at around 7am
YXU-TUS every Monday departing at around 2pm

thenoflyzone Jun 12, 2022 10:08 PM

Tucson would work as well. They appear to have customs, as Flair has already announced several Canadian cities to Tucson, some of which don’t have preclearance.

Djeffery Jun 12, 2022 11:44 PM

I posted my guess on the London forum for Palm Springs or Phoenix area. I didn't investigate customs options though. Vegas would have made sense except for the single flight a week, which no one goes to Vegas for a week. Also I believe the news story said it was to a location not previously served from London, which did have Vegas flights years ago. Seems odd they would set up shop here for one flight a week, so I'd be interested in seeing if they have any other flights being announced for winter start up.
