Cal-State Air Lines 69

 

 

The times for these flights are taken from the March 1969 timetable for Cal-State Air Lines available at the excellent www.timetableimages.com.

Cal-State began scheduled operations on 11 November 1968 between Long Beach/Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, Bakersfield and Fresno. It operated mainly Beech 99s although had at least one Beech D18S (well, actually an ex C-45). In 1969 it ordered six Jetstreams from Handley Page.

Cal-State was suffering high operating costs and low revenue passenger miles, and although the six Jetstreams were delivered they were never operated and were stored at Reno Airport, Nevada. Cal-State itself folded shortly afterward, the last schedule being flown in May of 1970.

These services were provided at the time using Beechcraft C-99 aircraft.
