Silver Airways ATR 42-600 First Delivery

 

Silver Airways welcomed their first ATR to Florida yesterday, a new, 46-seat ATR 42-600 with registration N400SV named "Mile Marker Zero" and featuring a flamingo named "Bella" on the tail. The aircraft is the first of 20 ATRs (a mix of 16 ATR 42-600s and four ATR 72-600s) which will replace Silver's current fleet of 21 Saab 340B aircraft.

Today's Featured Map shows the delvery path of the aircraft from ATR's main mainenance base at Toulouse-Francazal to Silver's second hub at Orlando. The longest segment of the trip was the trans-Atlantic crossing from Praia in the Cape Verde Islands to Natal, Brazil. At 1,425 nm, this flight was nearly twice the aircraft's advertised 716-nm range with a full load of 48 passengers but well within the range of the aircraft with a maximum fuel load and no payload.
