  • Skywest retires Embraer 120

    http://airwaysnews.com/blog/2015/05/...mb-120-flight/

    Sad to see them go...
    Never got a chance to fly on one, but I managed to catch a few:
    [photoid=7658994]
    [photoid=7569103]

    Kind of a surprise for me since I saw so many at SFO last year!

      I had a Skywest guy on the jumpseat recently and he said part of the reason they're retiring the Brasilias is the fact that they can't find pilots, so they're getting ride of the EMB-120's to use the pilots elsewhere. Of course, the economics of the older plane does play into the decision as well, but the pilot shortage is a large part of their decision.
