(The old topic was closed, so I’m making a new one)
United Express was founded in 1985 as Air Wisconsin, Aspen Airways, and West Air helping the smaller airports get service to United’s hubs. Later Aspen Airways would not serve United Express as it merged with Air Wisconsin. Washington Dulles airport would be served by Presidential Airways, but failed, causing WestAir to form an Eastern division to fly out of Washington, which later became Atlantic Coast Airlines and later Independence Air. Great Lake Airways later joined the United Express team along with SkyWest joining after Los Angeles became a new hub. In 2001 GLA broke it ties with United Express. Air Wisconsin failed to bid its contract, causing United Express to make contracts with Republic Airways, Shuttle America, Colgan Air, GoJet Airlines, And Chautauqua Airlines. United Express cancelled operations for Mesa Airways CRJ-200 And Dash 8 services along with Express Jet operating the ERJ-145. In 2016, Republic Airlines Dash 8-Q400s were removed from service, being replaced by the E175. In 2017, Air Wisconsin became an operator for United Express again, which will operate a fleet of 65 CRJ-200 aircraft.
So, what do you think of this bird? Isn’t she a beauty to see, let’s hope the devs consider this in the next update along with its older sibling (CRJ-700).
(Also, if you care, I would like them to be operated by Skywest, just because why not, also, N910EV is the one in this picture, if you’d like to add that as the registration, if you add it FDS. 🙏)
