After RavnAir Group cancelled the auction process to sell off its assets earlier this month, a Southern California commuter flight service — FLOAT Shuttle — struck a deal with the bankrupt airline to buy the Part 121 federal operating certificates from Ravn-operated airlines PenAir and Corvus.

Alaska Seaplanes announced Tuesday it intends to relaunch passenger air service on routes formerly served by RavnAir Group, which declared bankruptcy earlier this year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Juneau-based Alaska Seaplanes had previously put in an offer to buy the Part 121 federal operating certificates from Ravn-operated airlines PenAir and Corvus — which allow scheduled service to rural hubs in the Aleutian Islands, Bristol Bay, and the Kenai Peninsula.

Alaska's largest rural airline is scrambling to find a buyer that can keep the company intact as it emerges from bankruptcy, rather than seeing its planes sold off piecemeal through a liquidation process.

A local petty officer with the U.S. Coast Guard received an award earlier this month for exceptional service, "modeling a superior example and distinction" amongst his shipmates.

Marine Science Technician (MST) Jake Hill – who has been with the 7-person Marine Safety Detachment Dutch Harbor since last summer – was awarded the Sector Anchorage Enlisted Person of the 4th Quarter of 2019 honor.

A Juneau-based flight service says that continuing air service to Southwest Alaska communities like the bustling fishing port of Dutch Harbor could be jeopardized unless its bid to buy regional airline PenAir is accepted by its bankrupt parent company, RavnAir Group.

Alaska Seaplanes says that PenAir's operating certificate is set to expire next month, and if that happens, resurrecting the company could be an expensive and time-consuming process that might not happen before the COVID-19 pandemic subsides and PenAir's destinations need more flights than are available now.
