Cascade Airways Pilot Wing 2nd Issue

Spokane, WA 1970-1986

Cascade Airways primarily served the Pacific Northwest in the U.S. as well adjacent states including Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Utah. When Horizon Air began operating in 1981, Cascade found itself competing against a better financed airline. Horizon also embarked on a growth phase via its acquisitions of Air Oregon and Transwestern Airlines. Cascade was then forced to seek help from Horizon; however Horizon subsequently backed out of the deal and Cascade was forced to cease operations.
