To add to this list:
Air Creebec

I don't believe Carson has any 1900's, unless they recently acquired one. Also, Georgian is no longer utilizing the 1900 as far as I know.

Maybe it’s because it’s such a great looking aircraft.

Maybe the C models, the D's just look like an abortion with the raised roof and even more crap glued to the ass end.

The 1900D isn't a pretty plane. I've flown in CMA and Pasco examples. But they're fast...

NT Air and CMA 1900s are all dual registered.

Carson actually has two 1900s. They were bought in hopes of getting a bariatric medevac contract... which has never happened in BC, it’s always been ad hoc. They went begging to Alberta to try and get one there not realizing that Can West has all new King Air 250s and 350s with cargo doors and winches that can do any bariatric work.

So they do ad hoc bariatric flying in BC and charters the rest of the time with it. Not really the best time to get into the 1900 business when most people are going to bigger 705 machines.

They were doing the Watson Lake crew changes with Alkans 1900s and 200s... sitting up there all day... hoping that they wouldn’t ice up or have to reposition their planes to Fort Nelson or Whitehorse and reposition their profits to the fuel and deice companies.

I always thought the 1900D looked like a catfish. Bunch of weird fins and whiskers sticking out of it.

And yeah, it's the least bad of all the horrible commuter category airplanes that formed under those weird regs.

Interesting! Thanks for that info! Thunderbird wanted to convert a 1900 to medevac back in the day for that very reason. I'm not sure I know of any Canadian operators that converted a 1900 to bariatric medevac machines.

EVAS has a dedicated 1900D MEDEVAC machine. It sits in YYT on the Irving ramp. Barely moves.

Northern Air tried it as a bariatric machine. In the end the medics loved it, but the fuel bill is huge compared to a B250C or even B350C (with cargo doors) and meeting accelerate stop, accelerate go, and net take off flight path means it can't go into half the strips in the province.
