I wrote a story last week on a start-up in the south Pacific called Solomon Islands Seaplanes that has started operating a Beechcraft 18 and a Convair 580.
It also plans to add a Grumman Goose to its fleet later this year, the Solomon Islands CAA principal flight standards officer, George Satu, told me over the phone.
I wasn’t able to reach the carrier’s founder Bob Keys but if you see this post Bob please give us a call. Would be good to do an interview with you.
Solomon Islands Seaplanes is a small outfit but I do like writing about such carriers because there is always a lot happening in small countries like the Solomon Islands and these countries often get overlooked by other news media.
