Archipiélagos Servicios Aéreos takes delivery of its second Islander

Archipiélagos Servicios Aéreos (Puerto Montt) received on September 21 its second Britten-Norman BN-2B-27 Islander. Aircraft arrived in the late afternoon of that day at Marcel Marchant Binder airfield at Puerto Montt (SCPF) after being ferried from Santiago. The airliner is registered CC-PAC (msn 2166) and was used for fisheries prospection duties in northern Chile.
This is the second Islander for Archipiélagos (the first one is CC-CYR) converting the airline as the sole operator of the type in Chile, replacing in some way the Piper Saratoga CC-CDU that had a crash landing at Hornopirén Airfield on July 8 2010 fortunately with minor injuries to the six on board. The airline operates from Puerto Montt to Ayacara, Nueva Chaitén, Poyo, Santa Bárbara, Segundo Corral  among other isolated settlements.
