What the hell are universities going to do with a retired CR2? Donít they understand that all these 20 year old airline applicants want to fly big shiny E175s?

Most of the schools have more than Pilot programs. They would be useful for maintenance, et al programs.

Our tech ops will prep them for flight. Once donated, I have no idea. Probably wonít be our problem anymore.

It should be an asset transfer/donation so the schools will take over their care. I donít think they will ever fly again once the transactions are complete.

This is correct. It will be kind of like ďnon-opĒ car registered. It will no longer be airworthy but fully functional.

UND was given a FedEx three holer many years ago, they had no use for it and gave it to the GFK ARFF who uses it for mass casualty and emergency drills. AA did the same thing with their 767 that flew an engine at ORD a few years ago, donated it to the Chicago FD. A lot of money to be saved in donating than just scrapping.

Mostly this is a tax write off. What the college does with the planes I think delta wonít care. Purdue has a Crj2 out at their airport. Lewis university has a 737 from United and several delta Dc9s are are all over the country.


But bottom line, tax season is right around the corner.

Ha, but I don't see the problem here. FedEx donated a bunch of 727's. There's nothing to see here.
