They've moved a pair of 1900s down to FLL to codeshare with Chalk's. The President is under a mandate from the owner to double the company's operations within the next year.
(This info came directly from the President during my interview with the airline back in July.)

They are upgrading and hiring way too many pilots. Something is going on but nobody seems to know what. There is a lot of speculation though.

I heard from an inside source that they were buying a whole slew of 1900's, and were hiring to put crews in them. Something is in the cooker.

I was reading some of these other threads and the theory about skyways sounds interesting. Has anybody heard anymore about that?

So i'm sitting in one of the term's at KDEN during some pretty crappy weather, I look out the window to the active rwy and see a slew of at least five B1900's on final, and I say to myself ... I hate the Beech 1900 and anyone who would make an airline out of them.

Obviously, you've never flown the 1900. It's a fun bird, and an amazing performer...no matter how ugly it may be.
