FAA Shuttles


#1

The FAA operates shuttles 4 days a week between their tech center at ACY and DCA.

On FA it says “Boston-Maine Airways, D/B/A William Hughes Technical Center Shuttle”

Boston-Maine Airways ceased operations 2008. The registry for the planes (Jetstream 31’s) say they’re registered to Pan-Am still. Who really owns them?

The registration says Pan Am Railways Inc, Nashua NH.

Guilford Industries is the owner of the railroads in the New England area. These include the former Boston and Maine, Maine Central, Bangor and Aroostook (BAR), and the Springfield Terminal. For several years they ran all of these railroads under the Springfield Terminal name, as a way around some of the union rules.
Several years ago, they bought the rights to the Pan-Am name. I don’t know if they have finalized renaming, but several engines have been repainted and relettered for Pan-Am on their railroad system.

Apperently the Boston- Maine Corporation is a subsidary of Pan-Am Railways. I guess the Boston- Maine Corporation owned Boston- Airways and still has the Jetstreams.
