Cape Air has grounded their entire fleet (Cessna 402) due to 3 recent engine failures.

It should be noted that this is a voluntary grounding. Most of the comments from my professional pilot board are positive. Amazing that management has taken such a proactive approach. Kudos to them, they’re sure to loose a ton of money this week.

Kudos is sure the word of the day.

Better to lose a couple days worth of income then have to fork over years worth of income to defend a mishap.

If only those that were inconvienanced for a measly 48 hours would see it that way.

One of my employees was down there and got to ride in the right seat just less than a week ago.
