Cape Air’s fleet of Tecnam P2012 Traveller aircraft is grounded. The “temporary and voluntary” measure comes as regulators on both sides of the Atlantic need to discus potential issues related to modifications of the elevator trim control system.
Total flights down by 40%. Passenger count down by 90%. Load factor for the month of just 8%. Needless to say, Cape Air’s statistics for April 2020 are pretty awful, just like the rest of the aviation world. But the airline has some potential good news to consider as it looks to a slow summer and beyond.
