This 1992 1900C was originally delivered to Business Express as N823BE. After the airline was forced into bankruptcy in 1996, the aircraft was returned to the lessor as they divested of all types except for their Saab 2000. Entering Pacific Coastal's fleet in June 2006, it's still current at the time of uploading.
Short-lived airline based at Essendon. Operated to Burnie in Tasmania but flights suspended after VH-EMK was returned to lessor. Restarted with a Sharp Airlines Metro but services soon stopped again. Operated Essendon-Merimbula. More disruptions when the deal with Sharp ended and then Free Spirit was asked to vacate Essendon. Ceased operations entirely in February 2018
