Any interest in Caribair division?

Celebrating the FiestaJet airline bought out by Eastern in 1973. This division recreates the airline as it was in the late 60s, flying out of San Juan, PR.

Any interest in Caribair division?

Postby Peter Liddell » Tue Jun 02, 2015 12:48 pm

Looking at possibly adding new division based on Caribair 68 which Eastern took over. It's not huge (DC-9s and Convairs) but the route network is interesting...

Problem is that there is no freeware or payware CV-640 model unless Peter wants to use CV-580 as substitution.

There is a freeware 640... even in Caribair markings... but they would need to be redone and... well... just dont count on it soon.

CB did fly to MIA, around 1971 (see the little star "subject to government approval" it took time to get approval under the CAB system)... I'm doing 68 when they still had a large short range network from SJU

Yes I saw that last year or 2 years ago but it was not by software company. Some guy made the 640 model base by himself and I am afraid to download it. He also had Caribair golden livery but I am afraid to download it.

This is what I am looking for:

Also, here is my discussion last year or 2 about CV-640. Here is the link for your reading.

Well can always go with the Convair 340 as well... they were converted in 66, or i can backdate the timetable to 62 and have CV340s and DC-3s...
