Aerodynamics, Inc. – ADI rebrands as California Pacific Airlines

Aerodynamics Inc. (ADI), the commercial airline with scheduled service and charter operations, is rebranding as California Pacific Airlines (CPA). The new branding will transition throughout the month of August with a planned September 1, 2018 launch of CPA branded flights.

On September 1, 2018 all flights will fly under the new trademark California Pacific Airlines. This includes the Essential Air Service (EAS) routes currently operated in South Dakota and Denver, CO. All CPA aircraft will transition to the new livery, and all airport stations will receive updated branding as well.

CPA is also pleased to announce the launch of its new reservation platform which replaces the Great Lakes system ADI previously used for its South Dakota routes.

All current ticket holders that purchased flights through CPA’s previous partner, Great Lakes, before August 1, 2018 will not experience any disruption with their flights.

In a related development, CPA has recently signed a lease with the McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, CA.  Carlsbad will serve as the base for CPA’s planned growth on the west coast.

“We should be announcing our initial service points, schedule and fares in the next week or so for the west coast operation,” commented CPA’s Mickey Bowman, Executive Vice President and COO.  He continued, “We have set a target of November 1, 2018 for our first flights from Carlsbad.  We will be holding job interviews to staff our Carlsbad pilot base in the next few weeks. This base will be unique in that we envision the pilots primarily flying same day trips, without the need to be away from family and friends for extended periods of time.   We anticipate hiring Mechanics and Ground Service Agents as well as we get a bit nearer the November 1st launch date.”
