News from the hangar
Maintenance tasks are progressing well on the Super Constellation. Unfortunately, both systems and structural repairs are more complex and time consuming than originally anticipated. This means that sadly, the «Star of Switzerland» will not be flying again this year as the aircraft will not be ready in time for the required test and check flights to be accomplished before the end of the summer.
However, after talks with FOCA representatives as well as receiving positive feedback following previous inspections, we are confident that upon completion of the required maintenance tasks, we will have many successful flying seasons to look forward to!
Thanks to a generous offer by Swiss Airlines, our «Connie» will have a hangar spot until the end of August 2018. This will allow us to continue focusing on necessary repairs without causing delays by having to move the aircraft frequently.
Our «SuperLetter» will be mailed out on June 22. In it you will find additional information on the status of the Super Constellation.
«Thank you to all donors»
Connie friends care- as of the middle of May, 2018, more than CHF 2 million have been donated in order to save the Connie. Your generous support has ensured the financial security of our project- what an exciting and wonderful achievement!
The "SCFA Donations indicator" has been removed from our website; 35 lucky winners of a 45 minute sight seeing flight onboard the Connie will be drawn from among all donors.
The future of our Grand Old Lady will continue to depend on your support. Donations will be accepted via our e-shop, or one of the SCFA donation accounts.
The SCFA would like to extend their sincere gratitude to all Connie fans for their generosity and financial support. Fly Connie, fly!
