I feel that this is a beautiful plane, and a must-have if the Saab 2000 ever comes to IF. Just imagine flying around the unique terrain of Alaska and the west coast in this thing!

And as of today PenAir has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy…


Although, the Saab 2000 and this paint would be nice to see within Infinite Flight someday soon. I’m all for more props. 😁 Nice request!

Thank you! Yea I saw that on their Facebook page earlier. Pretty sad to hear, especially considering they served my local airport (KISP) for a little bit. I hope they can recover!

Bankrupt or not that is one of my favorite liveries I’ve seen on a plane. Voted!

It’s just two hubs that they closed Portland and Denver. they are still considered one of the largest regional hubs here in Alaska and would also like to see this added to the sim

There’s actually a request for this that was previously made:

However, it is rather bland and has been inactive for quite some time – over a year at this point.


Anywho, this request isn’t bad. It’s not worth my vote quite yet as I’m not sure if FDS has future intentions on adding the Saab 2000 aircraft for Infinite Flight. If that becomes the case, I’ll be sure to return back to this topic and submit a vote for it.

What a sleek plane and livery… Too bad I have my votes set on more important things.

Yes! The “Saab” series would be an amazing edition to IF! 😃

It looks like an E135, CRJ, and 737 all squeezed in one, then have some props thrown on it. I like the livery, gives a rustic feel.
