You’re probably right, though it still doesn’t mean we get to go “do it this way… but only with this type/category of aircraft”. We filled a void in the sim and diversified our aircraft fleet in a meaningful way when the Cub was added. Just thinking about the timeline, keep in mind that when that decision was being made we just had A10 and KC10. Had we done a C17 instead it would be similar comments that we are seeing now such as, “that is three military in a row! Why isn’t the A330 being rebuilt?!”
It’s one heck of a cycle. Either way, this was a fair question presented to the community and they’ve spoken! Rest assured the team has a few things in mind for the future that’ll continue to satisfy the corner of our audience that appreciates flying anything other than 12 hour hauls between the same 20 airports.
I really appreciate all of the input thus far!
