Tradair Fleet

Within the attached sub-menus, you will find extensive (and hopefully complete) listings of the aircraft that this company used. If five or more of one type were operated, then I have endeavoured to provide them with their own exclusive menu. Lesser types have been grouped together in the ‘OTHERS’ tab. In this particular location (and if applicable) you will also find a separate page for aircraft that were leased short-term (one year or less) and airframes that were purchased purely for spares use. Any aircraft that were leased long-term can be found in the main fleet listings.

Needless to say, the intention here is not to supply endless lists of information, but to highlight significant events and provide a brief history of each individual airframe while it was operating with its respective, Southend based airline. However in many cases, you will often find a certain amount of peripheral information that may be of particular interest too. To complete the story, a complete history of ownership and the aircraft’s fate have also been listed. These particular listings run in alphabetical order according to their registrations.

In these menus you will find all the major types such as the:

Vickers Viking

Operated by Tradair from 2/58 to 12/62

Also the lesser types of which only a few examples were operated which include the:

Vickers Viscount

Operated with Tradair from 2/60 to 12/62
