Ravn Adds Aircraft to its Fleet

Friday, January 22, 2016

Ravn Alaska adds two new Cessna Caravans to its Bethel aircraft fleet, operated by Ravn Connect/Hageland Aviation, increasing the total number of aircraft to 15 which support daily scheduled and chartering flights to and from Bethel and the surrounding communities. The two new aircraft include state of the art avionics, improved de-icing systems and along with all the Bethel aircraft will adhere to the Ravn Connect/Hageland Safety Operational Control Center procedures. This unique center, based in Palmer, Alaska communicates directly with each pilot prior to every flight. The center’s experienced controller and the pilot must agree that the flight is safe to operate from takeoff to landing.

As the State of Alaska’s largest commuter air carrier, Hageland Aviation recently was awarded all five Cornerstone “Safety” Stars of the Medallion Foundation, and has applied for the Medallion Shield, the foundations highest safety aviation award. Ravn Alaska operates two daily non-stop flights from Anchorage to Bethel as well as serving the passenger, charter and cargo needs to over 100 communities throughout Alaska and proudly employs more than 900 professionals. Passengers may participate in Ravn Alaska’s FlyAway Rewards program or earn Alaska Airlines miles on select flights. For the lowest fares visit www.flyravn.com.
