Presidential Airlines Pilot Hat Badge
Long Beach, CA 1993-1996
The original plan for this airline was to start up with B-737s however they were approached by ING Aviation Leasing to operate the Airbus A-300. These aircraft were larger than needed but the financing was very attractive. Flights began on October 2, 1995 with public charters and doing sub-service flying for other airlines. Their load factors were not as expected and their aspirations to grow did not materialize. They ceased operation in 1996.
