AUR1

Filmed in 2002 - Released in 2003

Aurigny has served the Channel Islands since 1968. Its scheduled services between Guernsey, Jersey, and Alderney, and to destinations in the UK and Continental Europe, provide a lifeline for the local communities and their thriving business and tourism sectors. To date, Aurigny has carried more than 8 million passengers. In 1999 the airline introduced its first pressurized aircraft, a Saab 340. In 2002 the 4th Saab is delivered. They service busy routes such as London, Manchester and Amsterdam.
This program takes you on all 3 types of aircraft operated by Aurigny (Saab, Shorts & Trislander) on a variety of flights to London, the Channel islands as well as to France and the Netherlands.

Thank you for your series on the Shorts360. I live in the United States and I will be starting a Shorts 360 class for a Cargo Airline in Florida soon. This DVD has helped me learn how this aircraft flies. The video also helped me in understanding how foreign air traffic and airlines run their systems. I can't even begin to describe how beautiful the scenery is also and how well the camera man captures it all. Thanks again and keep rollin the film.  Jamie Gutierrez, USA

As a teenager, living in Dinard, France, I have spent hours raising my eyes to admire the Trislanders, those unique aircrafts, and listening to their singing but powerful sound. So it was an immense pleasure for me to get the opportunity to watch and listen to them endlessly, now I have left Dinard. The other aircrafts are very interesting too, with very beautiful views indeed of the sea, clouds and airports in autumn conditions flights. Thank you very much! Jean-François Rio, FRANCE

Thank you very much for your Aurigny DVD. I have flown on Trislanders twice this year to Alderney and the coverage of the aircraft is great. Landing at the narrow runway in Alderney brought back all my memories of my flights. The captain gives an excellent talk about the instuments in the cockpit and the take off from the cabin was amazing. I can't get enough of the sound of those Lycoming engines. The coverage of the Saab 340 and Shorts 360 is also very good. Well worth the money. Hywel Phillips, UK

I enjoyed the Aurigny DVD very much. Have travelled on the Aurigny Trislanders many times as my wife is from Alderney. One point I think would improve the DVD, a little, would be to have a few external shots of the plane as it lands edited in with the cockpit views, otherwise a very accurate record of Trislander flights. Have yet to travel on the Shorts 360 or SAAB 340 but after viewing the DVD its the next best thing. Mike Willis, UK

"Thank you very much for your Aurigny DVD. I enjoyed it immensely! It is an excellent product  with great variety of both the aircraft it portrays and showing the various operational aspects of flying smaller commuter aircraft. The First Officer on the Saab 340, bound for Stansted, gives a very good cockpit briefing making even the more intricate aspects of the panel understandable.The cameraman also does a great job in capturing the atmosphere as we break through the clouds after departing Guernsey. The video shots of the Shorts 360 just confirm that this is a very unique aircraft. Despite its ungainly appearance it is a real workhorse and flies very well. (I've flown in one myself!)  The scenery views taken from the various flights are just magnificent and gives you a good description of the environment these pilots work in. I just wish I could have participated as copilot on the Trislander. Landing at the tiny little airport at Alderney was exhilarating! Keep up the good work!" Glenn Ernford Lie, NORWAY

Fantastic work on the Trislander and Shorts 360. There's not much room in either but you did it. Great views and detail of the flights. I'm a big Shorts fan, and I'm glad and privileged to have been of help to your team in some small way in this DVD. Nick Carter, Aurigny Air Services, UK

A very nice program on Aurigny Air Services! A very informative presentation by the marketing manager serves as a good introduction of the company. The best coverage ever of the Saab 340 with a very thorough cockpit presentation and a flight in the cabin on the return from Amsterdam to Guernsey. The 4 flights on the Shorts 360 feature some interesting and unique camera angles in the cockpit and great scenery of the Channel Islands in stormy weather. The flights on board the Trislanders are lots of fun with more wonderful scenery and excellent camera work. I love the sound of those lycoming engines! I'm looking forward to many more programs in this fabulous World Air Routes series!  Greg Rowland, USA
