Bluegrass Airlines was started by a Bowling Green, Kentucky, doctor and his two sons in 1944.  It was one of the first post war intra-state carriers.  The company ceased operations in the fall of 1946.

In 1946, the Central Time Zone was used for all of Kentucky.  Currently, Louisville, Lexington and Ashland observe Eastern Time.

The aircraft flown was a Cessna T-50 'Bobcat'.

There is a Cessna T-50 'Bobcat' by Alphasim available for FS2004 from the Virtavia freeware site www.virtavia.com/Freeware/index.php.

This aircraft will fly in FSX, but all of the gauges will have to be replaced with FSX gauges.  A revised panel for FSX and a repaint in Bluegrass Airlines livery is available HERE.
