Florida Express Airlines Pilot Hat Badge 2nd Issue
Orlando, FL 1983-1988
Florida Express was a low-fare jet airline based in Orlando that served points in Florida, the midwest, and the mid-Atlantic states. The airline began operations in January 1984 with a fleet of BAC 1-11s. Braniff (II) absorbed Florida Express in 1988, bringing the return of some of the same BAC 1-11s that had flown with the original Braniff two decades earlier.
