Ravn to buy PenAir

During the auction for PenAir, Ravn has announced they will buy the Chapter 11 Airlines. PenAir filed for Chapter 11 in May 2017 ending their EAS services in the Pacific Northwest, and Mid west. PenAir operated the Saab 340Bs and Saab 2000s to 8 different airports with in Alaska. PenAir has 400 employees while Ravn has over 1,000. Once finalized Ravn will need the blessing from the FAA and DOT to put PenAir On their 121/135 certificate.

I think this is a good thing for Ravn. It will be interesting to see how business goes after everything is final. How was work at PenAir?

This is somewhat great news! I was hearing that Alaska Airlines would buy them, but I am happy Ravn did! I have worked out a potential summer job with Ravn while I am home from college, and eventually a pilot job. I initially reached out to PenAir, so I am so happy they will still be around to some capacity.

Ravn is growing slowly so It will be interesting, they’ll be operating to new spots where they typically don’t go. It was alright, they said I go to school or work for them so I went to school lol

Unfortunately, not when I was in high school. I found I wanted a career in aviation kinda late in my senior year.
