The aircraft (V3-HIM) arrived at the Philip Goldson International Airport at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday after a ferry flight from Cessna headquarters in Wichita, Kansas, and comes fully equipped with a G1000 glass cockpit, weather radar and air-conditioning.
“This aircraft represents yet another $5 million vote of confidence in the continued growth of tourism in Belize. The caravan allows us to serve domestic and regional destinations, and is the most technologically advanced, fuel-efficient aircraft in its class. We love its performance and passengers love it for the air-conditioning and comfort,” said John Greif III, President of Tropic Air.
“This aircraft is the latest example of our commitment to reinvest our earnings in our employees, our terminals and new aircraft to provide the best possible service to our customers,” Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Tropic Air, Steve Schulte expressed.
With the addition of this new aircraft, Tropic’s permanent fleet will number 18.
